OtterBox today released its Defender Series and Commuter Series cases for the HTC One smartphone and also announced these cases for the upcoming HTC First Facebook phone. Here's more info on these new OtterBox cases:
With a reputation for rugged protection, the Defender Series is designed to keep devices unscathed with three robust layers. A high-strength screen protector is built into a sturdy polycarbonate shell then wrapped with a durable silicone outer layer. Together, this first-class fortress provides protection from drops, dust and scratches. Included with the Defender Series for the HTC One is a holster-style swivel belt clip for convenient carrying or media viewing. The Defender Series will also be available for the new HTC First.
The Commuter Series provides a slim, sleek and attractive enclosure for the HTC One. A hard polycarbonate outer shell and a heavy-duty inner silicone layer cushion the device during impact and absorb potentially harmful shock. With a self-adhering screen protector, the HD display of the HTC One is kept pristine.
HTC One cases are available now from www.otterbox.com and select retail locations; HTC First cases are coming soon.
