Seidio now offers rugged Samsung Galaxy Note 2 cases and Rugged Nexus 4 cases that allow users to carry their smartphone in outdoor situations without worrying about drops and dings. Seidio also announced the OBEX waterproof Samsung Galaxy S3 case this week.
The Seidio Convert cases for the Galaxy Note 2 and Nexus 4 include a two part design that allows users to get maximum protection when they need it and slim down when at the office or just out on the town.
The company describes the Convert as two cases in one, which is a description that fits as users can take the external skeleton off when they want to trade soem protection for a slimmer case. This is especially important with a Galaxy Note 2 case.
The Seidio Nexus 4 case and Galaxy Note 2 case includes a soft touch hard case that includes a metal kickstand so users can prop the phone up while watching a movie or making a video call. The kickstand magnetically attaches to the case to stay shut when not in use.

Users can also pick the option with a holster that protects the front cover of the screen and include sa spring clip to attache to a belt, pocket or bag. The inside of the holster is felt lined to prevent scratches.
With the full package, users also get a second holster that fits the thicker protective skeleton. The Rugged skin attaches to the device with the Surface case already in place and covers ports, buttons and the camera, while leaving them capable of being used. The Galaxy Note 2 Convert case and Nexus 4 convert case provide shock absorption and protect the corners of the device, which should help protect the glass back of the Nexus 4.
