Back to School: OtterBox Cases Transform Learning In and Out of Class

FORT COLLINS, Colo., Aug. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Back to school used to mean new pencils and notebooks, but today's students learn using a variety of new technologies both in and out of the classroom. Tablets are becoming a staple in many households and are gaining traction as an educational tool, but the bumps, drops and scratches of daily transport can quickly add up. The OtterBox® Agility Tablet System protects these ultra-portable devices and enhances the way students continue the learning experience after the last bell rings.

The Agility tablet system creates a seamless environment for tablet use in the home and on the go. The Agility Shell, the system's base, snaps easily into place around the tablet to provide trusted OtterBox protection. From there, the system uses magnets to provide a solution that can be mounted, docked or carried with options for viewing and typing angles – ideal for working on math homework or watching an assigned documentary. System accessories include an Agility Dock, Wall Mount, Power Base, Folio, Portfolio or Deluxe Folio. This "Build Your Own" ecosystem is available to cater to each tablet user's individual needs.

The Agility tablet system is currently available for the Apple® iPad Air, iPad® 2/3/4, iPad mini with Retina® display, Samsung® Note 8, Samsung Note 10.1 (2014 Edition) and Samsung Tab 3 10".

"We know that the education experience doesn't end in the classroom," said OtterBox CEO Brian Thomas. "The Agility tablet system is designed to encourage students to keep learning after school hours, while providing parents the peace of mind to encourage children to use these extraordinary tablets freely. With Agility, learning on a tablet can become more convenient and effective for students and parents alike."

OtterBox has a long history of working to promote educational enhancement through the use of technology and is a supporter of innovative education. OtterBox works directly with schools and districts across the country, like Belton Independent School District and Conrad Ball Middle School, outfitting classrooms with Defender Series cases to keep school-issued iPads safe for an uninhibited learning experience. OtterBox also released UnlimitEd, an education-specific tablet case, earlier this year. UnlimitEd was designed specifically to fit the needs of a K-12 classroom, with input from students, teachers and administrators. For more information on UnlimitEd, contact education@otterbox.com.

Agility tablet accessories are available now on otterbox.com and at Best Buy locations. For more information on the individual components and packages, visit otterbox.com/agility-tablet-system.
