Rugged OtterBox case for Treo 680, 750 and 755p
Owners of Treo models 680, 750 and 755p who've been coveting the dark, macho Otterbox cases that have been available for the BlackBerry 8700 series as well as earlier Treo models, can soon dress up their smart phones in similar style. Made to withstand harsh climates and/or work conditions, the OtterBox 1921 is made of durable polycarbonate/ABS and rubber overmolding for grip and drop protection, while allowing you to use your keypad touch screen, and other buttons. Like other OtterBox cases, this one shields your Treo from dust and water (though it's not made for use underwater).
The information on the OtterBox website makes me wish I worked in an outdoor environment that required a rugged case like this every day. Still, even a mostly armchair lifestyle can be risky to devices -- there are coffee spills, tumbles downs the stairs, and run-ins with the car dashboard to consider.
Right now you can sign up on the OtterBox website to be notifed when the OtterBox 1921 becomes available. No pricing information yet, but I'm guessing it'll be priced similar to the OtterBox 1920 for Treo 650, 700w and 700p, which sells for $129.
