OtterBox Tandem Series, Enhance Your Palm Pre Experience
Fort Collins, COLO. – Revealed at CES 2010, OtterBox announces a new case line, the Tandem™ Series. Engineered with the same attention to detail and consideration for protection as other OtterBox lines, the Tandem Series enhances your smartphone experience with flagship protection for the Palm® Pre™.
“We’ve finally put rubber to the road with the concept of a case for a slider phone and the Palm Pre was just the right place to start,” Curt Richardson said, OtterBox CEO. “The Tandem Series is a completely new design for us and we have spent significant time and effort to offer not only protection, but functionality. CES is the ideal environment to introduce our new line and we’re looking forward to feedback from passionate tech minds at the show.”
Made to safeguard against unexpected bump and shock, the Tandem Series provides two custom fit polycarbonate shells with overmolding and an adhesive screen to shield against scratches.*
“Overmolding is an injection molding process that combines two materials into one interconnected component,” Richardson said. “The Tandem Series is created by molding polycarbonate and silicone together.”
So how does the Tandem Series work?
- The first shell attaches to the front of the smartphone and the second shell attaches to the back.
- Silicone around the outside edges of the case offers protection against bumps and the polycarbonate shells offer stability to withstand light impact.
- Once the case is assembled, it allows for complete functionality, even when sliding the display screen up and down.
The volume keys and power button are covered by a thin silicone layer to offer extra protection and the USB/charge port, earpiece, home button, microphone, display screen, speaker, camera, flash and other features are openly accessible. Included is a microfiber cleaning cloth and an installation card. The Tandem Series offers complete protection for any technology enthusiast.
Designed to enhance the Palm Pre experience with ergonomics and functionality, the OtterBox Tandem Series provides a pioneered option for protection. Visit the OtterBox booth at CES 2010 for more information: upper level of South Hall 3, booth #31858.
