One of our readers, Carl, just sent us a tip that OtterBox has released their new case for the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 and 8130 for $49.95.
Below is an extract from their news email:
“OtterBox introduces the slim-fit OtterBox 1936 to protect the BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8120™ and BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8130™ series smartphones from Research In Motion (RIM). With complete access to the trackball, camera, flash, sync/charge and self-portrait mirror, the OtterBox 1936 provides an ideal solution for on-the-go protection with style.
Additionally, three acoustically approved, semi-permeable membrane vents protect the microphone, headset and speaker phone openings, while still allowing clear sound transmission. Cases include a holster-style, swivel belt clip for convenient carrying. The BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8120™ and BlackBerry® Pearl™ 8130™smartphones also feature a magnet proximity sensor to automatically shut off the screen and maximize battery life when stored- this feature is supported with the OtterBox 1936. You won’t find a better case out there!”
If you have not heard about OtterBox and their fantastic range of cases for BlackBerry products either check out our previous reviews or go to www.otterbox.com to see their entire range.
The case I reviewed a few months back now is still the same one I use daily today. Its been dropped, thrown, sat on and abused on a daily basis and still I can not fault it. I’ll probably keep using it and do a long term review on it when 12 months is up… I will keep you posted.
