OtterBox Covers Motorola XOOM, New Tablet Contender

Filed under: Industry News,Mobility |


Otterbox is awesome! Not much else to be said, they make some of the best, if not THE best cases in the industry!



Constantly innovating to provide reliable coverage for mobile devices, OtterBox® announces the Defender Series® case for the Motorola XOOM™ tablet. This new case offers an exclusive multi-layer design to keep your investment safe.

The outer layer is a durable silicone skin enhanced with patented “honeycomb” coring, designed for increased impact resistance. The inner layer is a hi-impact polycarbonate shell lined with memory foam to cushion the XOOM. A removable polycarbonate screen shield provides impassable protection and also functions as a display stand with two viewing angles. Use one angle while typing notes during a meeting or the other angle for video watching on the airplane.*

“No other case can withstand the same degree of rough treatment,” said OtterBox Founder and CEO Curt Richardson. “The Defender Series provides superior protection but also allows complete interaction with the tablet.”

Silicone plugs cover the charge, micro USB and HDMI ports as well as headphone jack and microSD card slot/SIM tray to keep out dirt and dust. The volume keys are also covered by silicone to keep them protected. All microphones, sensors, camera and flash remain exposed for full functionality.
