OtterBox Defender Series to the Rescue

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - May 6, 2009) - Just as an emergency response team works to preserve life and prevent injury, OtterBox does the same thing for technology. OtterBox Defender Series™ cases extend the life of smartphones, iPAQs and other handheld devices while preventing costly destruction from bumps, drops and scratches.

Ken Davidson, lieutenant of operations for an emergency medical service and rescue team, uses the OtterBox Defender Series case to protect his iPhone™ 3G while on the job. As a paramedic supervisor for a large suburban rescue squad, Davidson responds to high priority calls to provide command and support as well as oversees the daily operations of five ambulance stations in Montgomery County, Pa.

"Based on reputation and performance of previously owned cases, OtterBox was the first company I turned to," Davidson said. "I have owned several OtterBox products in the past including a Defender Series case for my wife's original iPhone. I have not seen any other cases that have all of the features of the OtterBox."

OtterBox Defender Series cases provide ideal protection for harsh environments. With an innovative, clear membrane to protect screens and keys, users can access all device functionality through the case. The combination of a hi-impact polycarbonate skeleton and impact-absorbing silicone skin provides protection against drops, bumps and shock* so you can use your device in a variety of emergency situations without fear of damaging it.

Volunteer firefighter in northern New Jersey, Matthew Zempol, has nearly a dozen OtterBox cases and currently uses the Defender Series for Palm® Centro™ to protect his smartphone from his busy, on-the-go lifestyle.

"[OtterBox] products have saved me thousands of dollars in electronics so far," Zempol said. "My original [OtterBox] is ten years old. If that can last for that long it is practically bomb-proof in my book."

If your job takes you to chaotic environments like Davidson and Zempol, depend on OtterBox to rescue your delicate device from damage or destruction. Defender Series cases are available for Apple®, BlackBerry®, Palm®, HTC and HP devices. Check out www.otterbox.com for more information.
