The latest addition to my mobile tech arsenal is an Apple iPad that I recently won in a Facebook photo contest. Starting at $500 for the entry level model, the iPad certainly warrants some sort of protection against the elements / clumsy hands. Even before my new gadget arrived, I was already considering protection options. A few names instantly popped into mind, one being OtterBox. We have covered several of their mobile phone cases, spanning the likes of Apple, HTC, Blackberry and Palm, but never before have we looked at anything that couldn't fit inside your pocket.
Today we will be taking a look at the OtterBox Commuter Series for iPad, one of two iPad cases currently available (the other being the Defender Series case). Much like the mobile phone series of the same name, the Commuter for iPad is a less rugged offering from OtterBox, providing superb protection without too much added bulk. Can OtterBox continue their success from the mobile phone market on a larger scale?
The OtterBox Commuter Series for iPad arrived in a fitting yellow and black cardboard hanging package. There is a photo of the case installed on an iPad on the front along with a cutout to show the look and feel of the actual case. On the back is a photo of the back of the case along with a brief description of the case. Below is a list of specifications borrowed from OtterBox's website.
Let's move ahead and take a closer look at the OtterBox Commuter for iPad.
