In Case You Missed It: OtterBox Unveils Exciting New Cases

Just in case you missed it, the second leg of the Otterbox Drop Test Tour happened last weekend at Trinoma. I'm so thrilled to be a part of this exciting event and yes, I was able to witness the brutal and  nerve-racking drop tests. This might be the coolest thing I've seen in awhile and I'm convinced my phone is indestructible with an OtterBox case!  Indeed, it’s not just a case, it’s an OtterBox.

Not that I'm bragging but I think I make those classic ninja moves whenever I'm about to drop my phone. So I don't always drop my phone but when I do, it's the day I don't have any kind of case on, and it's not even an OtterBox. Sheesh. On the other hand, my daughter drops my phone way too much especially my old, trusty iPhone 3gs so everytime Maia drops my iPhone 4, I have a mini heart attack & it high fives the floor with the screen. It's like my life flashes before my very eyes. I just, well, cringe and move on. :)

Smartphones like iPhone 4/4s are really smart and genius. Evil genius, but they are not strong phones. We spend all that money and they can not even last a simple fall. Tsk. So I guess when you want to be  “smarter than your smartphone”, you want the smartest protection you can find for your smartphone right? That's why I choose OtterBox. Now, it is the official protector of our iPhones and iPad.

Otterbox’s durability.barely a few months after gadget solutions innovator OtterBox arrived in town, the brand now introduces three new product lines that are set to make protection even more striking.

True to its mission of keeping its products up to date with the latest gadgets in the market, OtterBox is all geared up for the Samsung Galaxy Note with the new Commuter and Defender cases. Both lines are available for this industry-defining phone/tablet hybrid, making active users confident about keeping their new favorite device on hand anywhere.

I got the Commuter Series. This is designed for people on the go, spontaneous, chaotic, graceless individual who has broken a phone due to their active lifestyle or just plain clumsy like me. I also like the combination of light and dark teal color and  while not very bulky, it sure adds a considerable amount with its dual layer design. There’s an inner, soft silicone wrap-around layer that’s held in place by an outer polycarbonate shell. Sweet!

The case fits perfectly and it is a protection from scratches, bumps and shocks. I think it looks great. It shows the slim and sleek look of the iPhone 4.  

I like that the port at the bottom and the headphone jack is sealed by the silicone case; and the headphone and charger cover fit and stay snug until you are ready to use it. Also, it doesn't stick when you try to put it in your pocket or pull it out. Overall, I highly recommend this case.

So if you're a dropper,  I highly recommend you invest in one. You certainly will feel better next time your phone falls out of your bag or drop it, something that is bound to happen anytime. And if you're going to spend precious money to buy an expensive gadget, why scrimp on its protective casing, right? :)

Take a look at what we had going on in this video. I guess some people never had the guts to throw their Otterbox-encased iPhones around but at the OtterBox Drop Test Tour, they will really dare you to drop everything! They threw their phones high up up in the air and juggled them around. In this video, Ms. Chanty Tan and her friend were playing with a Blackberry 9900. See it to believe it! :)

Therefore, I conclude, OtterBox rocks! An OtterBox case is practically indestructible and it gives hardcore protection to your precious gadgets.

Pure genius.

I also had a short one-on-one  interview with Tenkie Box President, Jay Tengco, who personally demonstrated the durability and ruggedness of OtterBox cases. He explained the brand, as well as the different OtterBox products. He also said he is very proud working with OtterBox and it really gives hardcore protection for smartphones.

OtterBox® Defender Series® for Samsung® Galaxy Note®
The Defender series maintains its signature of superior protection as it comes in three layers to keep the thin and light body of the Galaxy Note secure in any environment. On the surface, the built-in screen protector keeps the Note safe from scratches. The outer layer, made of durable silicone, absorbs bumps and shocks, while the inner polycarbonate shell provides solid impact protection. Openings on the case include slots for the loudspeaker, the micro USB port, and easy access to the stylus. The ribbed texture along the sides for enhanced grip completes the deal for the tough Defender case.

 OtterBox® Commuter Series® for Samsung® Galaxy Note®

The Commuter remains stylish as ever for the Note, but not without compromising the protection it offers. Like the Defender series, the Commuter comes in three essential layers with a slimmer, more compact fit. Its smooth finish allows it to slide in and out of pockets, making it accessible to the urbanite on-the-go.
Meanwhile, OtterBox has made cases even more fun for Apple users with the introduction of color combinations of the Defender series for the iPad and iPad 2, as well as the Reflex Clear series for the iPhone 4 and 4S.

OtterBox® Defender Series® for Apple® iPad® Alpen Glow
The OtterBox iPad case, which provides shock and impact absorption and scratch resistance, now comes in five vivid colors for its polycarbonate and silicone combinations: the Hornet in bright yellow and black, the Deep Sea in solid blue and black, the Alpenglow in cheerful pink and black, the Crevasse in classy white and black, and the Sea Green in vibrant teal and black. With the case’s new colors, any iPad now looks as fun as its apps and functions.

OtterBox® Reflex Series® for Apple® iPhone 4/4S® Pink Translucent

iPhone users can also look forward to a more funky and clearer protection with the Reflex Clear series. Ever the versatile line, the lightweight and innovative Reflex case now comes in three translucent colors—glacier blue, pink, and clear—showing off Apple’s sleek style to shine through. Still, the Reflex offers flexible and easy protection with its shockproof single-layer case, complete with a self-adhering screen protector to guard against scratches and scuffs.

With its consistent and reliable product lines, OtterBox continues to offer solutions for the hottest gadgets on the market today. By providing long-lasting protection, units get spared from frequent repairs and replacements.

OtterBox products are exclusively distributed in the Philippines by Tenkie Box, a distribution and retail company dedicated to getting the best and latest smart phone, tablet and gadget cases. Check out Tenkie Box website for more deets! 

So whether you're going out on a trip or enjoying a girl's night out, protecting your iPhone 4/4S or any other smartphones that you have is important. That being said, OtterBox case employs multi-layer technology combined with high-quality materials to create the most solid protective solution and it was designed to outperform expectations. I think it's one of the worlds best inventions. Seriously.

If you have your own OtterBox story or anecdote on how OtterBox saved your smartphones, I’d love to hear it. :)
