RIM has been reworking their accessory program in the last few months around a new “Built for BlackBerry” program for accessory manufacturers. OtterBox has long been one of the best producers of quality cases for BlackBerry but now its official. They just announced that they have been accepted as a member of the Built for BlackBerry program. According to OtterBox:
Built for BlackBerry selects elite accessory manufacturers who set the standard for quality, craftsmanship and customization. OtterBox specializes in BlackBerry smartphone protection and over the years has demonstrated expertise in accessory innovation, landing a prestigious spot in this new program. All OtterBox cases are designed with protection and functionality in mind, resulting in sturdy solutions that uniquely accommodate all device features.
So if you were staying up all night losing sleep wondering if your OtterBox Defender case was truly Built for YOUR BlackBerry… You should start taking some sleeping meds. 🙂
Also OtterBox announced that the U.S patent office has issued patent # 7,933,122 for their Defender Series® cases for technology. The cases offer some awesome protection for your BlackBerry and other electronic devices. This is good to see them win this patent since they have set a high standard in an innovative protective case design. If you like to read the full press release check it out at this link.
