Lets give a way an Otterbox Defender case
Taken directly from Otterbox website :
Three essential layers on this case safeguard your BlackBerry Storm smartphone from whatever the day brings:
* Layer 1: two built-in polycarbonate screens, one over the smartphone screen and buttons and a separate one over the camera and flash.
* Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate shell
* Layer 3: Silicone skin to absorb bump and shock
Access your audio jack, as well as the convenience, lock, mute, volume and navigation keys right through the case. Acoustic vents safeguard the microphone, speaker and receiver while maintaining clear sound transmission. The ambient light sensor also remains functional through a polycarbonate window.
Carry your smartphone hands-free with the included ratcheting holster. Also, the BlackBerry Storm smartphone features
a magnet proximity sensor which automatically shuts off the display to maximize battery life when stored, a feature fully supported with the OtterBox holster.
Now let me tell ya, this Defender case for the Storm is by far the #1 best protection for your Storm. I put my Storm in one and did a few tests. Now you guys are going to think I'm stupid for doing this but I did it so I could test it.
First Test - I stood in place and acted like I was texting, then dropped the phone. I'm 5'10 so it was a typical phone drop. The fall did not even phase it. It hit the ground, bounced around and that was that. No marks, no indication of damage.
Second Test - I sat in a pick up truck, typical height off the ground and I then let the phone fall out of my lap onto the pavement. Again. Nothing. At this point I was getting aggravated, I wanted to prove this thing wrong!!
Third Test - This test was because I get aggravated with my Storm because I hate it. I sat at my desk, waited until it finally made me mad enough to where I wanted to chuck it at the wall...so I did..Could not believe it. The friggen thing still was going strong. NOW I was getting mad and thought of a great test to bust this theory of it being the indestructible.
Fourth Test (final test) - Opened the office window which is on the 2nd floor and oops, let it dropped. Walked downstairs, got some weird looks from people as to why I dropped my phone out the window but finally. I beat it!! Thankfully I had a dead storm in there for this test but the Storm was not damaged at all on the outside, the Otterbox lived up to its word but the blunt force of the impact killed the ol .75. Darn.
ANYWAYS, this case is the GOT TO HAVE case for protection on your phone. It's like injecting the phone with steroids, its one tough SOB. So since we are having a make over and need to clean off our shelves, I mine as well give an Otterbox Defender Series away to someone.
So, if you would like this case (not the one I tested but a brand new one), just simply comment back in here and Saturday we will let someone have it!!
Also, if you don't end up getting picked for this you can purchase this off of their site for 49.95 but trust me it is VERY worth it!!
