OtterBox Heavy Duty Belt Clip

One of the most frequently asked questions in the forums from public safety workers is what kind of holster can they use on their utility belts for their prized BlackBerry. OtterBox has always been what I have suggested, but the down side was that it did not fit on the utility belts securely.

When I went to CES in January, I stopped by the OtterBox booth and spoke with them about this and they told me they were working on a solution that would be available soon. I'm happy to say OtterBox Defender series heavy duty belt clip have finally arrived to! The heavy duty belt clip has been designed to work on utility belts up to 2.25" wide.

They are currently designed for the Bold, 8800, Pearl, 8350i, Curve and 8700 series. That pretty much covers any BlackBerry currently used today (no Storm version yet). As of right now, they are sold as a stand alone item for $14.95, so you must already own an OtterBox Defender Series case, or buy one in conjunction with the heavy duty holster. You can follow the links below for more information and to order. I'll have a full review coming soon.
