OtterBox: Colorful Coverage for BlackBerry Curve 8500 Series

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) -  Expanding on the popular Commuter Series™ case line for the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8520 and BlackBerry® Curve™ 8530 smartphones, OtterBox™ introduces five colorful coverage options to keep your smartphone fashionable this spring.

Find the perfect pallet for your personality by choosing from jasper red, zircon blue, ardoise slate, jade green and scapolite gray.

"We work hard to keep up with the requests from our customers, and one of the most common has been for color," said OtterBox CEO Curt Richardson. "These new color combinations will be great for expressing individuality while still providing high-quality protection."

The OtterBox Commuter Series color cases for the BlackBerry® Curve™ 8500 series smartphones incorporate three layers of protection: a self-adhering, clear film to cover the screen, a durable silicone mid-layer and a one-piece, custom-molded polycarbonate shell. The silicone is black, while the polycarbonate is available in the five new colors.*

All buttons and smartphone features remain fully functional through the case. Silicone corners help to dissipate impact away from the smartphone with added bump and shock protection. Cases include a cleaning cloth and installation card.
