Stay on Top of Your Day With OtterBox Cases for the BlackBerry Tour Smartphone

FORT COLLINS, CO--(Marketwire - August 6, 2009) - OtterBox announces two protective solutions for one of the hottest tech devices on the market, the BlackBerry® Tour™ smartphone from Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ: RIMM). OtterBox enables complete device accessibility right through the case. Whether you're looking for simple, silicone protection with the Impact™ Series, or more rugged, durable protection with the three-layer Defender™ Series, OtterBox has the ideal solution for any lifestyle.

Keeping your life organized can get overwhelming -- phone calls, emails, meetings and appointments -- with the OtterBox Impact Series case, you can maintain peace of mind knowing your smartphone is safe. Inner coring provides drop and shock protection and a self-adhering screen protector safeguards from scratches.* An included installation card enables easy screen application and a microfiber cloth keeps your phone looking new.

Those needing extra protection for their BlackBerry Tour smartphone can rely on the Defender Series, an exclusive design with three shielding layers:

-- Layer one: clear polycarbonate window protects against scratching as well as dust intrusion

-- Layer two: hi-impact polycarbonate shell

-- Layer three: silicone skin wraps over the device to absorb bump and shock**

"The OtterBox Impact and Defender Series provide different levels of protection so customers can choose a solution that best meets their needs," said Curt Richardson, CEO of OtterBox. "Trusted OtterBox protection ensures device security without interfering with the functionality."

Volume, trackball, convenience keys, camera, mute button, speakers and the micro USB port all remain accessible through the case.

Check a few things off of your to-do list and stay on top of your day by protecting your BlackBerry Tour smartphone with an OtterBox Impact or Defender Series case.
