Seidio, a leading manufacturer of premium mobile technology accessories, sets up shop at SXSW to showcase its new line of extreme protection cases. Adventurers and rugged outdoorsmen can hit the trails, slopes and more with confidence that their smartphone will stay protected. Seidio will be at Booth #545 from March 10th- March 13th.
“The expansion to our protective line is a result of requests by our customers. So, we’re very excited we were able to make these requests a reality,” says David Chang, CEO of Seidio. “We’ve made the CONVERT signature case compatible with the Nexus 4 and Note 2. Additionally, our popular waterproof case, the OBEX for iPhone 5 and Galaxy S III, is now available in white. We’re [Seidio] all about choices and options for protection.”
Dunk it, drop it, and never worry about it. The OBEX, a waterproof and military-tested drop-proof case, is now available in white. Seidio realizes that color matters, and wanted to give the consumer another sleek, elegant option. With the OBEX, your smartphone will remain perfectly dry and functional even after being submerged in water. It’s even passed multiple military-standard tests which includes falls from heights up to four-feet from many different angles. Innovatively designed, the OBEX features an anti-reflection glass that causes no interference with the camera lens. It’s compatible with the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III, and retails for $79.95 for the case and $89.95 for the case and holster combo.
Seidio’s signature CONVERT case is now available for the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the Nexus 4. Each combo features a metal kickstand for comfortable viewing angles for the first-time ever in this line. The one-of-a-kind CONVERT is essentially two cases fused together to meet the demands of the rugged professional in need of heavy duty protection. The CONVERT begins with the signature sleek SURFACE case, and users can add a layer of shock absorbing silicone and a precision-fit skeleton for added protection.
The newly designed holster boasts Seidio’s arachnid design which provides more security for the device. Additionally, the clip that hooks onto a belt is removable, and it accommodates belts up to 1.5” wide. The CONVERT retails for $54.95.
