Samsung & BlackBerry Users Maximize Use with OtterBox Cases

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Premium case manufacturer OtterBox® revels over the recent innovations from Samsung and RIM (NASDAQ: RIMM; TSX: RIM) and seeks to maximize use anywhere, anytime with Commuter Series® and Defender Series® cases for the Samsung Galaxy Note™ and BlackBerry® Curve™ 9220 smartphones.

“Both Samsung and RIM have set benchmarks for the appearance and performance of handheld technology,” said Curt Richardson, OtterBox founder and CEO. “Our engineers took cues from the basic styling of the new Galaxy Note and BlackBerry Curve and adapted them to our designs, providing the most intuitive functionality possible.”

With affection for Android™ or bravado for BlackBerry®, users can trust the multilayer protection of OtterBox to keep either device in pristine condition.

Commuter Series: Sleek, stylish and ideal for the hazards of the daily commute. The Commuter Series is the mid-level option for protection from OtterBox. It features a silicone inner layer with plugs protecting any exposed ports. It’s finished with a sturdy polycarbonate shell that gives it a smooth texture that’s perfect for sliding into a pocket or bag. Also included is a self-adhering screen protector, microfiber cleaning cloth and installation card for easy assembly. Available now for the Samsung Galaxy Note and BlackBerry Curve 9220.*

Defender Series: Unmatched protection for the most unforgiving of environments. The Defender Series’ first line of defense is a built-in, scratch-resistant screen protector. Layer two consists of a hi-impact polycarbonate shell that’s custom molded to fit the device and lined with a foam cushion. A shock absorbing layer of silicone skin finishes the case, ensuring protection against drops and bumps. The Defender Series also includes a holster-style swivel belt clip that doubles as a media viewing stand. Available now for the Samsung Galaxy Note.**
