Camouflaged smartphones


Smartphones have entered war zones. But smartphone case maker OtterBox of Fort Collins, Colo., wants to take it a step further and provide more safeguards for smartphones impacted by the elements.

OtterBox is offering camouflage protection that is waterproof for the iPhone smartphone called the OtterBox Armor Series with Realtree camouflage.

The Armor Series holster fits both iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 cases are expected to hit the market soon, according to the company.

Brian Thomas, OtterBox CEO, said technology goes everywhere today, whether it’s on a hunt or on the morning commute. By combining the Armor Series with Realtree camo, OtterBox allows everyone to get the most out of their iPhone anytime, anywhere, on any adventure.

The Armor Series fuses four layers of premium protection to defend against water, drops, dust and crush. Corrosion-resistant metal latches, o-ring technology and secure port covers keep water out and allow the Armor Series to undergo submersions for 30 minutes in up to 6.6 feet of water. Vents and port covers are made of a non-permeable membrane and a protective mesh layer allows sound to pass through, while keeping harmful elements out. Advanced materials protect the device from 10-foot drops while bumpers in each corner absorb shock. High-strength reinforced plastic allows the Armor Series to withstand two tons of force and a built-in screen protector guards against scratches. A lanyard is included for hands-free carrying.

The Armor Series will  be available in Realtree camouflage patterns including Xtra for iPhone 4/4S and iPhone 5 and Max-4 HD for iPhone 5 starting at $109.95, while the holster will be available for $29.95.
