A Fusion of Features: OtterBox Reveals Commuter & Commuter TL Series Cases for iPhone 3G & iPhone 3GS

(October 01, 2009)

DMN Newswire--2009-10-1--As an avid iPhone(tm) user, you exemplify the definition of cutting-edge, but the cool fa├žade will quickly fade with a scratched or dented iPhone. 

Introducing two new case lines from OtterBox for the Apple(r) iPhone 3G and iPhone 3GS: the Commuter(tm) and Commuter(tm) TL Series. Fusing rugged elements from the Defender(tm) Series line and sleek characteristics from the Impact(tm) Series, the Commuter and Commuter TL offer the best of both worlds.

"These new cases combine the most innovative features from previous lines to give customers style and protection," Curt Richardson said, founder and CEO of OtterBox. "The Commuter Series is an inverse design of the Defender; the hard plastic is now on the outside of the case with protective silicone on the inside. This new design slims-down the size and changes the look and feel of the case."

Both case lines were custom designed to highlight the true beauty of the iPhone in three slender, yet sturdy layers*:

  • First, a self-adhering screen cover protects from scratches (touch screen remains completely functional).
  • Second, a silicone skin wraps over the device to protect corners from bump and shock. Dust intrusion is reduced with the use of silicone plugs over audio port and dock connector.
  • Finally, a smooth one-piece, custom molded polycarbonate shell hugs tightly around the silicone allowing the case to slide easily into a pocket or purse.

Looking for a case to sport during the workweek? The OtterBox Commuter Series is the perfect sidekick for a lunch meeting, business trip or workout. A fortified polycarbonate shell wraps around the top, bottom and side grip areas of the case for a sleek feel, which also enables a smooth transition in and out of a purse, pocket or briefcase. The corners of the iPhone are protected with durable silicone to safeguard against bumps and shocks. Users can also choose between two optional accessory kits; each kit includes three interchangeable colored shell options, coming soon!

Want to individualize your iPhone? The OtterBox Commuter TL Series will be sure to draw attention from every trendsetter in town, available now in black and coming soon in six eye-catching colors. Inner coring along the vertical sides offers added protection and the textured exterior side grips provide an ergonomic feel and stylish detailing. Don't worry Apple lovers; the logo is safe and protected by a transparent polycarbonate shield.

"Color has been a huge interest for our iPhone customers and we're eager to fill that need," Richardson said. "The new Commuter Series offers optional, interchangeable color shells and the Commuter TL comes in a variety of colorful choices that enable users to individualize their OtterBox."

Both Commuter and Commuter TL Series cases come with a microfiber cleaning cloth and installation card for easy application of the self-adhering screen.
