OtterBox Introduces Defender Series

Apr 13, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- For the device that set the mobile world ablaze by bridging the gap between e-readers and tablet computers, OtterBox introduced Defender Series protection for the Amazon Kindle Fire.

"OtterBox is known for creating the industry's most rugged and reliable products for mobile technology," OtterBox Industrial Engineer Cameron Magnus said. "The Kindle Fire's remarkably clean design gave us a blank canvas to work with. Every layer of the Defender Series was designed to add to the aesthetic and ergonomic appeal of the Kindle Fire." The Company said memory foam pads cradle the device in a polycarbonate shell, while a silicone skin absorbs shock and protects ports from dust and dirt. The outer silicone layer features angular texture pads that add grip to all four edges of the case. The case also features an integrated screen protector to keep the Kindle Fire's seven-inch display free of scratches and smudges.

According to a release, the Defender Series for Amazon Kindle Fire includes a polycarbonate shield stand that supports viewing in portrait or landscape mode and functions as a durable screen shield when the device is not in use. The release points of the stand are ergonomically designed for increased ease of use.

"One of the most important things to a case user, next to scratch and drop protection, is functionality," Magness said. "A case needs to allow for complete, uninhibited device use and OtterBox cases do that while providing the best protection available." The Defender Series for Amazon Kindle Fire features, as described by the Company, include: Environmental Protection: -Drop and shock - protects device against drop, shock and bump -Dust intrusion - dust does not enter in a sufficient quantity to interfere with satisfactory operation of device -Water protection - not tested or recommended for water protection Built upon fundamentals of hard work and perseverance, OtterBox is a company focused on the production of protective solutions for global handheld manufacturers, wireless carriers and distributors.
