Carry the Torch & Hug the Curves: New OtterBox Cases for BlackBerry

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) - BlackBerry® enthusiasts have a new way to love their smartphone longer -- protective case manufacturer OtterBox® introduces a variety of options for the latest generation of BlackBerry smartphones. Now available: OtterBox Defender Series®, Commuter Series® and Impact Series® cases for the BlackBerry® Torch 9850/9860 touch screen hybrid and the true-to-its-roots BlackBerry® Curve 9350/9360/9370.

"We know how much BlackBerry smartphones mean to their users," OtterBox Founder and CEO Curt Richardson said. "They're not just phones; they are the engines of people's social and professional lives and we make every effort to preserve that."

Whether it's enjoying the latest BlackBerry Push®-powered "Super Apps" on the Torch 9850/9860 or staying connected on the highly manageable Curve 9350/9360/9370, OtterBox has them covered with multiple options for protection.

Ultimate protection for the Torch 9850/9860 and Curve 9350/9360/9370 is achieved with the OtterBox Defender Series.* The case for the Torch features a built-in screen protector while the Curve includes a self-adhesive screen protector; both provide a polycarbonate frame and shock-absorbing silicone skin that combine in a case unlike any other. Included with the Defender Series case is a holster-style swivel belt clip for fumble-free access.

Sleek meets rugged with the Commuter Series** -- this case line combines a shock absorbing silicone mid-layer with a custom-molded polycarbonate shell for a smooth finish that allows for easy access in and out of a pocket or bag. Protection against scratches, bumps and shock is added for the Curve 9350/9360/9370 and Torch 9850/9860. Included is a microfiber cleaning cloth, screen protector and installation card.

The Impact Series**, available now for Curve 9350/9360/9370 and Torch 9850/9860 is serious protection with minimal bulk. This case is made of substantial, high-quality silicone and features inner coring that absorbs impact to deliver reliable protection from bumps and dings. Included is a microfiber cleaning cloth, screen protector and installation card.

Staying busy never felt so simple. BlackBerry users can now enjoy NFC, BBM2 and BB7 in total confidence with the latest cases from OtterBox.
