OtterBox Unveils Low Cost iPad Air Cases for Educators

Otterbox UnlimitEd 3

I was talking to a 10-year-old the other day and he told me a story about a friend of his who accidentally threw his iPhone across the room after getting a fright from a prankster of an older sister. “Oh, no!” I exclaimed. He quickly noted that the iPhone was protected with an Otterbox case. It’s funny how some companies are so well known for their products that you don’t even have to get further explanation. I knew immediately that the iPhone was fine because it was safely enclosed in the toughest case on the market.

Today, Otterbox announced the launch of a line of iPad Air cases that are designed to meet the unique needs of K – 12 education. So, that 10-year-old kid who gets frightened enough to throw an iPad across the room won’t have to worry about breaking it.
