Carry the Torch & Hug the Curves: New OtterBox Cases for BlackBerry Smartphones

BlackBerry® smartphone enthusiasts have a new way to love their handset for longer -- protective case manufacturer OtterBox® introduces a variety of options for the latest generation of BlackBerry smartphones. Now available: OtterBox Defender Series®, Commuter Series® and Impact Series® cases for the BlackBerry® Torch™ 9850 and BlackBerry Torch 9860 smartphones and the BlackBerry® Curve™ 9350, BlackBerry Curve 9360 and BlackBerry Curve 9370 smartphones.

“We know how much BlackBerry smartphones mean to their users,” OtterBox Founder and CEO Curt Richardson said. “They’re not just phones; they are the engines of people’s social and professional lives and we make every effort to preserve that.”

Whether it’s enjoying the latest apps on the all touch BlackBerry Torch or staying connected with the easy-to-use new BlackBerry Curve, OtterBox has them covered with multiple options for protection.

Ultimate protection for the BlackBerry Torch and BlackBerry Curve smartphones is achieved with the OtterBox Defender Series.* The case for the BlackBerry Torch features a built-in screen protector while the BlackBerry Curve includes a self-adhesive screen protector; both provide a polycarbonate frame and shock-absorbing silicone skin that combine in a case unlike any other. Included with the Defender Series case is a holster-style swivel belt clip for fumble-free access.

Sleek meets rugged with the Commuter Series** -- this case line combines a shock absorbing silicone mid-layer with a custom-molded polycarbonate shell for a smooth finish that allows for easy access in and out of a pocket or bag. Protection against scratches, bumps and shock is added for the handsets. Included is a microfiber cleaning cloth, screen protector and installation card.

The Impact Series**, available now for the BlackBerry Torch BlackBerry is serious protection with minimal bulk. This case is made of substantial, high-quality silicone and features inner coring that absorbs impact to deliver reliable protection from bumps and dings. Included is a microfiber cleaning cloth, screen protector and installation card.
