OtterBox cases are now available for the Lumia 920, with two listed on the official website. Both the Defender (left) and Commuter Series (right) can be ordered online for $49.95 and $34.95 respectively. Tough it's common for smartphone owners to invest in device protection, one has to ask - does the Lumia 920 need protecting, or should we worry about the surrounding environment?
Windows Phone Central's Roundup of Skin Cases for the Nokia Lumia 900
Over the past few months, we've taken a look at a nice assortment of skin cases for the Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone. We had a request to roundup all these cases under one roof and felt like it would be a good detour from the apps and games.
So this week we'll take a break from our typical roundup to take a look at some of the better skin cases for the Nokia Lumia 900. Some of these cases offer a considerable amount of protection while others are more for cosmetics. Some are hard shells, some are gel skins, and others are a combination of the two. Next week we'll get back to the games and apps, but for now on with the accessories.
Otterbox offers some very impressive cases for our Windows Phone and the Otterbox Defender doesn't fall short. It is a rugged, highly protective case for your Windows Phone. The Defender has been available for a while for other smartphones. It was recently released for the Nokia Lumia 900 and we took it out for a test drive.
In a nutshell, if you are looking for a case that will protect your Lumia 900 and bulk isn't an issue, the Defender might be what you are looking for. The Defender is essentially a three piece case. There is the belt clip, the rubber outer shell and a hard plastic inner shell. Fitted with the Otterbox Defender, the Lumia 900 will rival the HTC Titan II in size but the Windows Phone will be more capable of taking on drops, bumps and bangs.
Otterbox makes some very nice cases for our Windows Phone. Recently the company released their popular Commuter case for the Nokia Lumia 900 and we've taken it out for a test drive. The Commuter is very similar to the Case-Mate Tough but beefier. The rubber sleeve is exposed at the corners of the Windows Phone and protects nicely against falls. The case also forms a frame that recesses the screen to protect it from scratches.
While the Commuter does provide a nice level of protection it does add noticeable bulk to the Lumia 900. Bulk some may not find appealing.
If you're looking for a waterproof case for your Windows Phone, take a gander at the Otterbox 2000. The case is waterproof (submersible up to 100 feet), crush proof and airtight. The Otterbox 2000 is a nice option if you're looking for a solution to protect your Windows Phone from the elements. I can see it come in handy on the beach, in the boat, on the four wheeler or any where else dust, water, grit and grime needs to stay away from your Windows Phone.
The HTC HD2 will forever hold a special place in Windows Mobile lore. As one of the best pieces of hardware in the pre Windows Phone 7 era, there are a lot of people that view the HD2 as a way of extending the life of what many consider a superior platform (Windows Mobile 6.5).
To make your device last as long as possible, you want to get a high quality case that is going to take the abuse for your phone. Nobody makes rugged, usable cases like OtterBox. The OtterBox Defender Case for the HD2 not only meets the high standard the OtterBox is held to, it exceeds them.
Rugged, yet functional. Protects every aspect of your case.
One of the first accessories that I purchase for any smart phone that I’ve ever owned is a case to protect my new investment. I’ve mentioned before that choosing a case for your phone is very similar to the process of choosing the phone itself. A large part of the decision is based on your lifestyle and how you use your device.
OtterBox makes some of the most rugged cell phone cases on the market, though they sometimes sacrifice in the portability/usability department. The OtterBox Commuter Series case makes a reasonable compromise between protection and usability.
We’ve reviewed cases in all shapes and sizes. Nothing that I’ve seen comes anywhere close to what OtterBox brings to the table with its cases. An OtterBox case is the kind of thing that you see in the movies that is used to house the super-secret multibillion-dollar thingamajig.
