As autumn continues to bring drab weather across the UK, OtterBox has made the very timely announcement of a new range of protective containers for our fragile smart phones.

Otterbox waterproof smartphone casesThe OtterBox Defender Series cases offer three layers of rugged protection from harsh conditions. The multi-layered design uses a built-in screen shield to keep smartphone displays scratch-free, a strong polycarbonate mid-layer and a shock-absorbing silicone jacket to keep the device safe. Silicone plugs keep access points free of dirt and dust, while an included holster-style swivel belt clip allows for easy device access. The Defender Series is now available for the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III, ATRIX HD by Motorola and coming soon for the RAZR M by Motorola. OtterBox President and CEO, Brian Thomas, said: “While active outdoorsmen are looking for the latest gear before their next adventure, this is the ideal time to bring Realtree’s popular camouflage patterns to the number one-selling smartphone case”.
