Equilibrium on the Go: OtterBox Defender Series for Palm Treo Pro

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - October 8, 2009) - Is it possible to find equilibrium from day-to-day chaos, broken devices, scratches, dirt and drops? With the OtterBox Defender™ Series case, now available for the Treo™ Pro from Palm®, you can. Answer emails, use your GPS, make a phone call or access appointments all without worry.

"The Treo Pro is an all-inclusive solution for business and personal lifestyles; with so much reliance on saved contacts, appointments and more, device protection is crucial," said Curt Richardson, OtterBox CEO. "The OtterBox Defender Series offers peace of mind for Treo Pro users by keeping out the elements and preventing damage from drops and scratches."

Featuring the popular three layer design, the OtterBox Defender Series for the Treo Pro provides protection from whatever the day brings:*

--  Layer 1:
    --  Clear, hi-impact polycarbonate covers the screen
        and camera to protect against scratching, as well
        as dust intrusion.
    --  A thermal formed protective clear PVC membrane
        covers the keypad (layer optional depending on
        the level of ruggedization desired).
--  Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate shell
--  Layer 3: Silicone skin to absorb bump and shock

Silicone plugs and pass-through buttons keep ports sealed to prevent dust intrusion while providing complete access to all device features including power, ringer/toggle switch, stylus, sync/charge, microphone, camera, WiFi, IR Port, LED, convenience and volume keys. Acoustic vents over the speaker phone and headset allow clear sound transmission. Case includes a holster style swivel belt clip for hands-free carrying.
