Review: BlackBerry Defender Case for the PlayBook
If you recently bought a brand new PlayBook now worried about dropping it? Luckily for you quite a few options are available in the BlackBerry PlayBook case category. Today we are looking at the Otterbox Defernder series which brings full protection for your PlayBook. If you have not used Otterbox before they provide rugged style cases for mobile devices and a member of the built for BlackBerry program.
- Three layers of protection
- Complete interaction of the device’s functions
- Clip on, multi-directional shield with built-in stand
- WEIGHT WITHOUT SHIELD: 11.99 oz / 340.19 g
- DIMENSIONS: 5.78 in x 8.03in x 1.17 in 146.81 mm x 204.06 mm x 29.82 mm
Package and Form Factor: The case comes in a small box already assembled all you need to do is take it apart and place your PlayBook in the casing which consists of a three layer protection.
A clear 2 piece polycarbonate shell that clips together that encases the PlayBook and includes the clear protective screen already attached to the polycarbonate piece. This makes it easier no messy installs of the screen protector. The third layer is a durable silicon skin that makes it a comfortable grip. The case also includes a clip on multi-directional shield with a stand. The stand allows you to set the PlayBook in two different angles.
Port access: The PlayBook is fully protected with a tight fit inside the case but that does not mean it takes away from acess to the buttons and charging ports. Otterbox has buikt easy access to the camera, USB, HDMI, ports and the Bezel is not covered by the case. This gives you high quality protection without giving up any of the feature of the PlayBook.
Size: I do have to point out that the case does add weight and increase in size to the PlayBook so you do give up that with this case but it makes up by giving you the best protection you will find for for your BlackBerry PlayBook.
Protection: The OtterBox has a built in screen protector that requires no messy installation process and it even works if you have another already on the PlayBook. The PlayBook OtterBox case makes the device feel really secure, to the fact that my friend had a really tough time trying to take it out. So you can’t go wrong with the protection it offers. The playBook fits tightly inside the device giving you a secure rugged feel when carrying.
The clip on Shield/Stand: This also provides another level of protection for the front of your PlayBook which also turns into a stand with two angles to stand your PlayBook.
Pros: Secures your device with the best protection available. Reliable, easy to set up, functionality is not diminished. peace of mind.
Cons: Adds to the size and weight of the PlayBook
Al though the case add to the size I can take my PlayBook anywhere without worrying I may damage it if it is dropped. The case will not open up and the devices pops out.
