Get your PDA cases here!

If you never heard of OtterBox and you own a BlackBerry Storm, you may want to find out more.  OtterBox makes protective cases for MP3 players and smartphones. The OtterBox Defender Series can protect your BlackBerry Storm from all sorts of problems including a Labradoodle puppy. In December, we ran a story where a toy Yorkie destroyed a BlackBerry Bold . BUT- even if your BlackBerry Storm in no where near a canine, the Defender Series cases are worth trying.


OtterBox just started selling the OtterBox Defender Series case for the BlackBerry Storm smartphone.  It enables complete interaction with the
keys, BlackBerry SurePress touch technology, sync/charge, USB port,
camera and more. 

BlackBerry Storm users don't usually like when we mention the i-word, however, an OtterBox Defender Series case for an iPhone saved it from a Labradoodle puppy(see Amber's antics in the video that follows.)  BlackBerry Stormers, however, may learn from iPhone users. Note: dogs jaws can apply over 320 pounds of pressure per inch!.

The OtterBox case for BlackBerry Storm looks smart and offers defense from bumps, drops and scratches (and Labradoodles.)

Three essential layers on the case safeguard the BlackBerry Storm smartphone:

  • Layer 1: two built-in polycarbonate screens, one over the
    smartphone screen and buttons and a separate one over the camera and
  • Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate shell
  • Layer 3: Silicone skin to absorb bump and shock 

Users can access the audio jack, as well as the convenience, lock, mute, volume and
navigation keys right through the case. Acoustic vents safeguard the
microphone, speaker and receiver while maintaining clear sound
transmission. The ambient light sensor also remains functional through
a polycarbonate window.

The ratcheting holster keeps the BlackBerry Storm handy on a belt. The BlackBerry Storm smartphone  magnet proximity sensor that automatically shuts off the
display to maximize battery life when stored is triggered by the OtterBox holster.

BlackBerry Protection at its FINEST.

Comment from Wireless and Mobile News Editor:
My Yorkie-Poo  Ewok says, "OtterBox Defender Series cases also taste good and they are so chewy. When President Obama gets his daughters their Labradoodle, he should look into an OtterBox for his BlackBerry."
