Otterbox make some of the toughest cases on the market. Their Impact range is a more lightweight version that is more practical for most that want serious protection for a small phone, but without the bulk or weight of their Defender covers. The Otterbox Impact Blackberry Curve Cases can be bought to fit the Curve 8300 series, 8350i, 8500 series and 9300 series, as well as the Blackberry Bold, Pearl, Storm and Tour. Each is tweaked to fit its chosen phone perfectly, but all follow the same basic pattern and design:
A self adhesive clear film takes care of ensuring the Blackberry screen doesn’t get scratched. Then the real protection begins, with pressure molded silicone that is great at absorbing shocks from bumps or accidental drops thanks to its inner core design. The silicone itself is textured to give you a better grippy feel to the phone making it less droppable too!
Most importantly for a case on your ever handy Blackberry Otterbox ensure your smart cell still functions properly. So you get:
- open access to headphone jack, sync/charge jack (mini USB), speakers, microphone, sensors and camera.
- silicone pass-through buttons to provide good access to the camera button, side programmable buttons, mute and volume buttons.
Otterbox Impact Cases are a great way to improve on the usual silicone skins without going into the realms of too heavy or too bulky.
