OtterBox working on iPhone case

image

OtterBox, known for its waterproof protective cases, has informed iLounge that it is hard at work on the OtterBox for iPhone. The case will feature three layers of protection, and the phone will remain protected at all times, thanks to a patented touchscreen membrane that allows full use of the iPhone’s multi-touch interface while still in the case. All buttons will be protected and useable via pass-through buttons, and the Dock Connector, silent/ring switch, and headphone ports will remain usable through plugs. The OtterBox for iPhone, which is still several months from hitting store shelves, will include a swivel belt clip that provides full impact protection for the screen.

Yes, it will also be available in Black on Black. Possible additional future colors may be available if there is customer feedback requesting that it comes in other colors.

Case looks very good, possibly the best case I’ve seen for an iPhone yet.  I’d love to see a cool blue (or “electric blue”) color instead of the yellow personally, but with the same color black/dark gray in for the rest of it as is shown in the picture above—for me, it would be the perfect color scheme for what could very well be the case I’ll be wrapping my iPhone in when it comes out.

i was just wondering if this case can be used with the iphone 3g because i think these colors are actually nicer then just plan black or the black and yellow case

I’ve looked everywhere and can’t locate this waterproof case.  Can you tell where I can purchase it?

Thanks,
