Is Your iPAQ Lacking Protection? Safeguard With OtterBox

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) - Sleek, slim-fit protection from OtterBox now available for HP iPAQ 110 and 210 models. These semi-rugged Defender™ Series cases, OtterBox 1913 for the 210 and OtterBox 1914 for the 110, safeguard devices from scratches, drops and dirt. With complete access to navigation features, buttons, sync/charge and SD/CF slot, these cases provide functionality and mobility, even in harsh environments.

"We are thrilled to offer HP iPAQ users OtterBox protection for their devices," said Curt Richardson, CEO, Otter Products, LLC. "Our Defender™ Series line allows customers complete interaction right through the case with recognized OtterBox protection, while maintaining a sleek design."

Three innovative layers of protection provide iPAQ users security and protection*:

--  First, slide on the thermal formed protective clear membrane to
    safeguard screen and keyboard against scratching as well as dust and dirt
    (layer optional depending on the level of ruggedization desired)
--  Second, snap together the hi-impact polycarbonate shell
--  Finally, wrap the silicone skin over the device to absorb bump and
    shock
    

"Now iPAQ users can take their device through busy airports, on vacation, to and from meetings and outdoors with protective cases from OtterBox," Richardson said. "A broken iPAQ can result in missed appointments and emails, lost contacts and more; but with OtterBox, devices are safe from drops, scratches and potential accidents."

Features include acoustical vents on speakers to allow clear sound transmission through the case while keeping out dust and dirt. A holster style swivel belt clip provides hands-free carrying. An integrated holster stand allows for vertical or horizontal screen viewing.

Customize your case with the OtterBox or HP logo. HP branded cases are available exclusively on HP's website.
