With the release of the BlackBerry Classic, tech traditionalists everywhere have reason for celebration. BlackBerry purists will recognize the familiar design and feel of the Classic, while OtterBox unveils the original rugged BlackBerry case, the well-known Defender Series, available now.
BlackBerry Classic utilizes a proven form factor, combined with the modern features of the latest BlackBerry 10 operating system. OtterBox mirrors this classic release, with the latest evolution of the Defender Series. The Defender Series has propelled OtterBox to the No. 1-selling smartphone case brand in the US and provides trusted protection to keep the Classic safe.
“Many of the original BlackBerry fans are some of the very first OtterBox users and fans,” said OtterBox president and CEO Pete Lindgren. “Defender Series is a natural fit for the BlackBerry Classic, being our oldest and most well-known line. Proven, sturdy and rugged, Defender Series perfectly complements the BlackBerry user experience and provides the engineered confidence of the No. 1-most trusted case brand in the US.”
Defender Series for BlackBerry Classic combines three ultra-tough layers to guard the device against serious drops, dirt, scrapes and bumps. In the office or out on a jobsite, port covers keep out dirt, dust and lint. A self-adhering screen film stops display scratches, while an included holster allows for easy access and extra protection on the go. Defender Series allows for full access to all device features including the brilliant display, keyboard and all buttons, ports and jacks.
The rugged BlackBerry Classic case is available on otterbox.com, and select retail locations.
