    OtterBox Launches Stylish Protective Case for BlackBerry Pearl

    Advertisement



    Exclusive to the Defender Series line, Otter Products, LLC. introduces the slim-fit OtterBox 1936 case to protect the new BlackBerry Pearl 8120 and BlackBerry Pearl 8130 from RIM. Allowing complete access to the trackball, sync/charge USB port, camera and self-portrait mirror, the OtterBox provides an ideal solution for on-the-go protection with style.

    Similar to existing BlackBerry cases in the OtterBox Defender Series line, the OtterBox 1936 case offers three layers to safeguard the BlackBerry Pearl 8120 and BlackBerry Pearl 8130 from bumps, scratches and drops.

    -- First, slide on the thermal formed protective clear membrane to
    safeguard screen and keyboard against scratching as well as dust and dirt.
    (layer optional depending on the level of ruggedization desired)
    -- Second, snap together the hi-impact polycarbonate shell
    -- Finally, wrap the silicone skin over the device to absorb bump and
    shock

    I am still strongly considering this case for my Pearl but it will have to wait until I can actually afford it.

    I'm debating it, but, still torn, I'd almost like to wait and get one for the 8330 when it comes out, since I know that I'm buying one when it does....

    The Otterbox website says it's not available for the 8130 yet? Any idea when?

    If the phone is the same size and buttons are in the same location it doesn't matter.

    It does matter, the camera is in a different location on the back.

    Thumbs up Re: OtterBox Launches Stylish Protective Case for BlackBerry Pearl

    Sorry guys, it is available. There's one page on Otterbox's website that says it's not available yet and you can get emailed when it is. The next page says it is available. I called Otterbox and they said it WAS released and available last week.

    Re: OtterBox Launches Stylish Protective Case for BlackBerry Pearl

    I got mine yesterday. I am a carpenter so I am around a lot of dust and in a pretty rugged environment all the time. I have been waiting for the release of this case for months.

    My first impressions are good. It is much better fit and finish than I expected. I love the membrane that covers the keys and find no interference in typing with it installed. After following the instructions for "recommended application" of the membrane I got all the bubbles out very easily. It does not seem as tough as the best skins ever screen protector but I feel very secure with the whole case on.

    I like the feel of it and it doesn't add too much bulk for me. It also looks good and I have got nothing but compliments on it so far.

    My one issue with it is that it does not seem to want to activate the sleep mode when inserted in the holster. It seems to me the magnet is not strong enough because if I put another rare earth magnet on top of the one mounted in the holster it does activate the sleep mode. I have not decided how big of an issue this is for me yet--I really want to use the mp3 function while holstered and would love to save battery by having the sleep function work, but my battery has lasted fine without it up until now. I will wait to see if more people report this problem before I decide how to proceed.

    All in all, I love it and it has exceeded my expectations. I can breath a sigh of relief now and feel like my berry is likely to last for a long time in this case. If you work in a harsh environment I say it is worth every penny.

    Eli

    PS Another big plus is although the side convenience buttons are still very usable they are way less prone to being activated by accident. This is very cool to me because they were always getting pushed when I reached for the BB in my pocket.
