OtterBox 1931 Now Available: Rugged Cases for BlackBerry 7200 Series

Dream about taking your BlackBerry® handset anywhere? Make it a reality with the OtterBox 1931 from Otter Products, LLC. Designed for Research In Motion (RIM) (Nasdaq: RIMM) BlackBerry 7200 handsets, this rugged case provides access to phone and data functions through the case for busy lifestyles.

The OtterBox 1931 provides a water-resistant access to keypad, scroll wheel, escape button, power button, mute button and programmable side button. Constructed of a polycarbonate/ABS shell for maximum strength and durability, cases provide grip and drop protection with innovative rubber overmolding.

LCD remains protected from scratches and drop damage with a rigid screen cover and Donaldson® acoustic membrane vents allow sound transmission while keeping the case sealed. Easy open plug provides access to sync/charge jack and headphone jack.

"We have already seen an interest in the cases from B2B customers, but even more so from military customers," explains Brian Thomas, Director of Sales and Marketing. "Many of our customers are working in environments that can be harmful to their device and data. The OtterBox cases designed for BlackBerry are an ideal solution for protecting technology investments."

Molded rubber inside the cases cradles the BlackBerry handset and an innovative o-ring seals it from exposure. Otter's recently designed compound (lockable) latch provides easy opening and secure closing.

Optional accessories include a standard swivel belt clip and a refurbish kit.

The 1931 has a MIL-STD 810F rating for drop and shock and an IP54 rating for heavy rain and dust intrusion. Cases available in black with grey rubber.
