Otterbox Launches Line of Customizable iPhone and Galaxy S3 cases

By  |  2 Comments

Those looking to be both fashionable and prudent can now pick up a distinctive and vibrant Otterbox Defender for the iPhone and Galaxy S3 cases.

Otterbox, designers of a long list of accessories for the highest selling smartphones worldwide, have announced new color options for users on their website when purchasing the company’s Defender Series of cases. These cases, which retail for a $59.99, come with everything you need to protect your smartphone against an unfortunate accident. That includes a two-part shell made of polycarbonate plastic that covers the device, a silicone gel that acts as a shock absorber and a screen protector to keep away any scratches.

The Defender’s silicone comes in black, gray, teal, blue and purple, while the inner and outer polycarbonate shells are available in black, white, teal pink, yellow, and orange and blue. The case’s included belt clip is only available in black. Unfortunately, none of this will provide users with protection from water. Those looking for any sort of waterproofing will need to keep their eye on the company’s Armor Series, which we took a look at this past January.

Specialized boutique cases have become a large cottage industry inside the smartphone ecosystem. With the increasing length of the average cellular contract and the now common use of less durable materials, like plastic and glass, inside bestselling devices like Apple’s iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S3, users are willing to pay for well-engineered protection in the hopes of not having to replace their phone or send it off for expensive repairs.

The Otterbox Defender series is available at Otterbox.com immediately.

    Nice case, but I would recommend the Pong Research Galaxy S3 over this. Studies conducted by numerous scientific teams in several nations have raised concerns about the possible association between heavy cell phone use and health problems. That’s why I did research and found a case that can reduce radiation exposure. I found cases from Pong Research, I read that this technology reduces exposure to radiation while optimizing the mobile reception. I was skeptical about it, anyway, I decided to try it, because Pong is the only technology proven in FCC-certified laboratories to reduce the exposure to mobile device radiation by up to 95% below the FCC limit without compromising the device’s ability to communicate.
