Otter Products, LLC announced the lauch of a NEW and IMPROVED rugged handheld computer case, the OtterBox 1900. By listening to key customers needs for a smaller, more versitile rugged case, Otter Products developed a more streamlined and accessible handheld computer case that allows users to take their iPaq, Axim, or Palm anywhere they need to go without concern for damaging their valuable device or the data that they collect.

The new case incorporates a much smaller form factor with the ability to access the handheld through the case via the replaceable screen membrane.

In addition, customers can expand the case to allow for GPS, barcode scanning, serial syncing, and power, all through the case, without interuption to the functions of the handheld.

“The OtterBox 1900 allows customers such as McDonald’s, UPS, and the US Forest Service to work in harsh environments more efficiently and saves those customers thousands of dollars over high-priced rugged handheld units available on the market”, said Brian Thomas, Director of Sales and Marketing for Otter Products.

The OtterBox 1900 can be used with virtually any handheld on the market and sells for $99.95. “As more customers collect data in the field, Otter Products is allowing our customers to protect their technology investments and more importantly, their valuable data”, Thomas said. “The OtterBox 1900 will allow customers to become more effiicent and grow their own businesses by enabling them to use their handheld computers where they otherwise wouldn’t think about going.”

The OtterBox 1900 has been independently tested to meet IP-67 and MIL SPEC 810F ratings for ruggedness. These standards are the highest available for a rugged device. Tested to be completly waterproof (it floats), dustproof, and drop proof from 4 feet to concrete. “The ruggedization level that the OtterBox 1900 meets is higher than most rugged devices available on the market and is acheived at a much lower cost to customers”, Thomas said.

Otter Products, founded in 1996 has a complete line of rugged cases for technology devices including the Tablet PC, Apple iPod, and two other models of handheld computer cases to fit any customer’s needs.
