This Week's BlackBerry Accessory Feature: OtterBox Cases

One afternoon last week in Las Vegas while Dieter and I were walking outside in front of the convention center leaving CTIA, a guy walking beside whipped his iPhone out of his pocket to answer a call but he somehow lost his grip and the iPhone literally went flying through the air before it smashing into the concrete. It happened quick and was painful to watch and both Dieter and I were sure that would now be an iPhone with a broken screen. But as the guy picked it up, I saw he had an OtterBox case on it. He dusted the phone off, all was good, and he kept going on his way as if nothing had happened. In this situation, I guarantee that would not have been the case had that iPhone not been wrapped in a hard case.

Even the best of us are bound to drop our BlackBerrys from time to time. It happens. The outcome of the situation depends on a lot of factors but one thing is certain - having some form of hard protection around your device will help it walk way from more abuse unscathed. I'm a big fan of OtterBox, so keep reading for your chance to win a one for your BlackBerry!

More Hard Case Protection for your BlackBerry

You may not one want to use a hard case on your phone every single day (though it's not a bad thing if you do - safety first), but it's always good to have one around for those times when you're going to be taking your BlackBerry to places where it's going to get knocked around. There are many forms of hard protection for your BlackBerry. Cases like the OtterBox are the beefiest and offer the most protection and come in different designs. The Defender series adds more bulk, but also more protection, while the OtterBox Defender and Commuter series is slim enough for every day use.
