OtterBox Launches iPhone 3G Protection

OtterBox releases iPhone 3G protection in the semi-rugged, drop and scratchproof Defender™ Series design. The cas is available now in black, and coming soon in white, black/yellow and pink. The pink model will benefit the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade and 10% of the purchase price will be donated to support access to care and finding a cure for breast cancer, with a focus on the medically underserved.

The OtterBox for iPhone 3G Defender™ Series accommodates Apple iPhone 3G 8 GB and 16 GB with three slim-fit layers of protection:

  • Layer 1: Patented polycarbonate membrane protects against scratches and dust intrusion while allowing for full use of the screen
  •  Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate shell
  • Layer 3: Silicone skin to absorb impact and provide tactile feel

The new case allows access to the silence switch, provides an improved screen and better fit and feel. Sync/charge, home, sleep/wake, volume, camera and headphone jack all remain accessible. Acoustical vents safeguard the microphone and speakers from dust and dirt to allow clear sound transmission. Case also includes a holster-style swivel belt clip which converts into a display stand when device is inserted screen out.

    News About Cube-Zone

    As you might have noticed, the Cube-Zone does not have its archives online yet. We're progressively updating the site with them (it is going to take a bit of time since the site started in 2000...). The gallery section now has some MacWorld Expo Photos as well as Paris Apple Expo pics. We also added some Cube mods and users desks with G4 Cube. The iPod galleries will be back online this week.

    If you want to add a picture of your setup (even if you do not have a Cube), feel free to contact us!

    We will soon reopen our forums and classifieds pages.

    We're still looking for contributors and a new logo design.
