OtterBox Flips the Switch on Innovative Protection for BlackBerry Smartphones

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) -  OtterBox™ has flipped the switch on innovative protection with the latest release of a Commuter Series™ case for the BlackBerry® Pearl™ Flip 8200 series smartphone.

"As the popularity of OtterBox cases continues to grow, we are constantly working to enhance our product lines. The OtterBox Commuter Series case for the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8200 smartphone is a pioneer in its design as it brings innovative protection to flip products," OtterBox founder and CEO Curt Richardson said. "Our product line is rapidly expanding to accommodate similar devices and we look forward to revolutionizing these new designs."

The Commuter Series for the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8200 series smartphones protects every feature of the BlackBerry smartphone while still allowing complete functionality. Similar to other OtterBox Commuter Series cases, a self-adhering protective film prevents scratching and a silicone mid-layer covers the top and sides of the smartphone to absorb impact. To add strength and a sleek finish, the case includes two custom-molded polycarbonate shells which attach over the silicone, one snaps on the front and one snaps on the back. Cut outs in the shells allow use of the flash, camera and power LED. A microfiber cleaning cloth and installation card are also provided for easy application.*
