    Otterbox Defender Case for iPhone 4

    otterbox defender case for iphone 4 Ever since I got an Otterbox Commuter Case for my BlackBerry Bold 9700, I've been a fan of Otterbox's phone cases. I mean, what more can you ask for from an iPhone 4 Otterbox case that provides 3-layers of protection for your iPhone 4? It's close to making your beloved phone indestructible. Alright to enumerate this 3-layer protection, the first layer is made of a clear protective membrane for the screen, layer two is made from a hi-impact polycarbonate shell and layer three is a durable silicone skin that wraps around your phone to absorb shock and a thermal-formed sheet that covers your screen and keys. Not contented with the protection their iPhone 4 Otterbox Defender case can provide, Otterbox also added some nice features including - a coating on the outside of the touch screen membrane that can resist finger prints, inner felt liner, holster that can hold your iPhone 4 face in or face out and which also doubles as a stand for hands-free media viewing. Obviously, the Otterbox Defender Case can protect your iPhone 4 from bumps, shocks, drops, and dust intrusion. It would have been better if the case protected your iPhone 4 from water as well, but that is maybe asking too much. (Price: $49.99)
