OtterBox Brings Big Protection in Small Package to iPad mini

FORT COLLINS, Colo.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Big things can come in small packages. The new Apple® iPad® mini is pencil-thin and small enough to hold in one hand, yet delivers the comprehensive experience of larger iPad devices. OtterBox® announces big protection for iPad mini with new Defender Series® cases, available now from OtterBox.com and select retail locations.

“For a case so lightweight and streamlined, the Defender Series case for iPad mini packs a big punch,” OtterBox President and CEO Brian Thomas said. “The 7.9-inch iPad mini provides extreme portability. To keep it safe, the rugged and trusted protection of an OtterBox Defender Series is an invaluable addition.”

The Defender Series made OtterBox the best-selling smartphone case and is designed to withstand the rigors of today’s mobile lifestyle.* A built-in screen protector, sturdy polycarbonate shell and shock-absorbing silicone keep the iPad mini safe from bumps, drops and shock. Silicone plugs round out the outer layer, keeping dust and dirt at bay, yet allowing for easy access to the charging port, headphone jack and silence switch. A removable screen shield keeps the Multi-Touch™ display safe when the iPad mini is stuffed in a bag and doubles as a viewing stand for efficient typing and web browsing.**
