Personalize Protection for iPod touch 4th Gen With OtterBox

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - January 24, 2011) - Thousands of available apps and millions of downloadable songs allow Apple® iPod touch® 4th generation users to tailor their devices to meet nearly any need. With the launch of two cases options from OtterBox®, device protection can be chic, cool and customizable. Introducing the Defender Series® and Commuter Series® cases for the iPod touch 4th generation, now available in multiple color options.

"The two OtterBox series available for the iPod touch 4th generation offer varying levels of protection for different lifestyles," OtterBox founder and CEO Curt Richardson said. "The color options allow for even more customization."

Sticking to the adage that form follows function, the new cases will provide the same level of protection expected of OtterBox with the added bonus of color options. Techies sporting the new iPod touch can play away in the GameCenter and FaceTime without fear of device damage due to bump or shock.

The Defender Series case offers three layers of rugged protection. A built-in screen protector keeps the large screen pristine while a polycarbonate shell encases the device. The shell is topped off with tough silicone wrap that includes plugs to protect the ports from dust and debris.*

Reversing the Defender Series construction, the Commuter Series packages protection in a sleek design. A silicone skin hugs the device and covers the ports and a sturdy polycarbonate shell finishes the case to provide protection from bumps and shocks. The Commuter Series case includes a self-adhering screen protector and application card.**

OtterBox cases have always been known for protection and now, with the colorful lineup of Defender Series and Commuter Series cases for the iPod touch, they evoke fashion as well.
