OtterBox Provides Premium Smartphone Protection across U.K.

CORK, Ireland--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OtterBox®, the global leader in the production of premiere protective solutions for handheld technology, now offers a selection of cases at Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone and O2. As a showcase in Europe’s largest independent mobile phone retailer and service providers, the U.S.-based company’s retail presence has grown to over 1,600 stores across the U.K.

“OtterBox is thrilled to be working with Carphone Warehouse, Vodafone and O2 in the U.K.,” OtterBox Regional Sales Manager for EMEA Fraser Heaslip said. “It is great to have such strong mobile retailers in the region who are as passionate about the OtterBox brand as we are.”

With an option for any lifestyle, OtterBox cases are innovatively designed to provide quality protection. The spectrum includes six series:

A household name, the Defender Series® sets the bar for mobile protection. Its multi-layered design has been acclaimed for providing reliable protection in unforgiving environments. A built-in screen protector, fortified polycarbonate frame and robust silicone skin defend the device from drop, dust and scratches. Most Defender Series cases include a holster-style swivelling belt clip that doubles as a stand for fumble-free access and effortless media viewing.*

The Commuter Series® is proven to be made for action as it provides multi-layered protection but in a slim form. A silicone mid-layer cushions the device while a sturdy polycarbonate shell adds reinforcement and provides a smooth, pocket-friendly finish. A self-adhering screen protector completes the protective package, guarding the display from scuffs and scratches.**

Versatile, the Reflex Series® provides compact and lightweight protection along with easy access for accessory docking. Its ultra-slim single layer is a fusion of silicone and polycarbonate that snaps together for quick installation and removal. It also includes a self-adhering screen protector.**

The Prefix Series™ consists of a dual-material, unibody construction that delivers a soft-touch feel with the inner strength necessary to keep smartphones safe from damage. An impact-resistant silicone exterior dissipates shock, while the inner polycarbonate backbone provides structural strength. Silicone pads inside the case cushion the device and an adhesive screen protector defends from potential scratches.**

Made for fun, the uniquely simple yet surprisingly tough single-layer Impact Series® minimizes bulk while providing substantial protection. The robust silicone skin features inner coring that safeguards against bumps and scuffs. A self-adhering screen protector is provided to keep the display pristine.**

The Pursuit Series™ is a reinvention of the classic OtterBox drybox. The industry’s most trusted waterproof box now boasts sleek styling and a set of refined materials to protect against water, crush drop and dust. A seamless compound latch keeps vital technology, tools and valuables safe, dry and secure while allowing for easy opening and reliable closure. Lockable carabineer loops make the box easy to tether and internal cushioning acts as a barrier to impact.

“As our reach continues to grow in Europe, the Middle East and Africa we are able to provide more customers with protection for their valued technology,” Heaslip said. “Continued success in retail proves there is a great demand for premium protection from OtterBox and we look forward to adding innovative products for the next iPhone® as well as other new devices as they come to market.”
