"We're excited for our consumers to check out the OBEX, and test its
durability," says David Chang, CEO of Seidio. "Dunk it in water or drop
it! We're confident you will have complete peace of mind with our case
as it stands up to even the toughest environments because of its
advanced technology and specially designed materials."
The OBEX protects againt water, snow, mud and other liquids. This
impressive case passed the IP68 rating which means it is both dust-tight
and protected against total submersion in water. The two-stage
protection system ensures all critical points of entry are sealed tight
and safe. However, the specially designed case and top-quality materials
guarantee protection does not obstruct functionality. Anti-reflection
glass causes no interference with the camera lens, and the acrylic glass
screen protector sits flush with the screen so it does not leave behind
any watermark effects and retains the screen's clarity.
Seidio ran the OBEX through some serious drop tests, too. It has passed
the U.S. Military Standards test, MIL-STD-810G, which evaluates the case
from 4-feet drops from a variety of angles. This is due to the unique
combination of Polycarbonate and Thermoplastic Polyurethane materials.
Additionally, the screen protector is stamped with a 4H hardness rating
to protect the device's glass from external elements.
The case will not impede radio signals or Bluetooth. Rubber stoppers are
used in the important ports, and can be easily removed for access. A
patent pending design case with custom padding and grids allow sound to
travel through without distortion. Additionally, the OBEX will also be
available as a case and locking holster combo.
The OBEX retails for $79.95, and the OBEX Combo retails for $89.95. For

The OBEX case line is also available for the Samsung (News - Alert) Galaxy S III.
