OtterBox Defender Case for the BlackBerry PlayBook

otterbox-blackberry-playbook-front-500x348 otterbox-blackberry-playbook-back

Many BlackBerry users (especially BlackBerry abusers) are well aware of the OtterBox Defender series line of cases. They are meant to provide heavy duty protection for BlackBerrys and have done a solid job of that for years. We already saw some of the accessories for the PlayBook at CES but Accessorize Mobile managed to snag some nice renders of a BlackBerry PlayBook fully clothed in a Defender case.

What do you think? Will your PlayBook always be wearing one of these cases? On the other hand that would exclude you from some of these hot RIM OEM cases they showed off at CES.

  1. No way to use a dock with this makes it a non starter for me.

    Never been a fan of Otterbox stuff. Sure I guess it makes them alot less susceptible to damage, but I take care of my gear anyway and don’t really want to add alot of bulk to them.

    Thinnest case i can find + a screen protector has always been my preference.

    Good to see some third party stuff though..

  2. Otterbox Defender Case for the Playbook looks good!

  3. Looks good, however I am like barrist: a thin case (or even a full body “skin” or film) and screen protector and I should be good. If I get my wife a playbook also she will HAVE to have the otterbox though. :)

    • Hopefully the thin cases that come out leave the magsafe contacts free to use with a Dock. I’m lookin at YOU Incipio!

      Never was a fan of the InvisibleShield type films… just makes it feel weird to touch.

  4. I agree with barrist. No dock use, no go for me.

  5. With a 2 year old in the house this is a must have, doesn’t matter whether I can use it with a dock or not. I just preordered it.

  6. I hope to see Otterbox develop a dock that is compatible with their case. That would be extremely useful.
