CES 2011 has been pretty packed with BlackBerry PlayBook news so far, but that hasn’t stopped OtterBox from launching a new series of cases for the BlackBerry Curve 85xx and Curve 3G 93xx series smartphones. The new Reflex series is inspired by the crumple zone of a car, and takes a hit, then springs back into its original form. These cases are only available for the Curve 85xx/93xx series (and iPhone 4) for now, and will be available soon for $44.95 each from OtterBox.com. You can check out the full press release and see the iPhone 4 model at Accessorize Mobile.
Leveraging OtterBox’s knowledge and expertise in device protection, the Reflex Series unites two resources – polycarbonate and TPE rubber – in an unprecedented single layer concept. Inspired by the crumple zone of a car, this case not only takes a hit, it recoils and springs back, ready to protect again and again. The most important part of a vehicle during an accident is the occupant. The same concept is applied to the construction of the Reflex Series case, protecting its precious smartphone cargo in the event of drops, dings or bumps.
Keep an eye on OtterBox.com for the new Reflex Series, they should be posted shortly.
