OtterBox announces Defender, Armor cases for new iPods
OtterBox has announced its Defender and Armor lines of cases for the iPod touch, iPod classic, iPod nano (with video) and iPhone. The Defender series, which includes the previously announced OtterBox for iPhone, offers semi-rugged cases described as “skin on steroids.” The cases feature hi-impact polycarbonate shells that snap together to safeguard the device and completely interactive, scratch-resistant, polycarbonate membranes to protect screens and Click Wheels. A silicone skin wraps over the case to provide additional protection from drops, bumps and shock. OtterBox Defender Series cases are available for the iPod touch ($30), iPod nano ($30), iPod classic ($30), and iPhone ($50).
OtterBox Armor series cases are “fully rugged” and are designed to protect against rain, dust, dirt, drops and other mishaps. The cases feature a polycarbonate shell and impact-absorbing rubber inside the case to cradle the device, and a scratch-resistant, hi-impact polycarbonate membrane covering for the Click Wheel or screen that offers full control and protection. The OtterBox Armor series is available for the iPod touch ($50), iPod classic ($50), iPod nano ($40), and iPhone ($70). Cases will become available individually over the next few weeks; the entire Defender and Armor line is available for pre-order now from OtterBox’s website.
