While walking the Solution Showcase at WES, I stopped by the OtterBox booth and discovered that they have some new colored Commuter cases available for the 85xx series device. For many years the only choice for colors on OtterBox cases was straight black, or black/yellow on the Defender Series cases.

They have now introduced a few more choices to that lineup; Ardoise Slate, Jade Green, Red Jasper, Scapolite Gray, Zircon Blue, and Pink/White "Strength" case. The Strength case is a limited edition case made to support the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade. OtterBox will donate 10% of the proceeds from the sale of the Strength case to the Avon Breast Cancer Crusade, with a minimum contribution of $50,000. 

I for one really like the new color choices, but I am a little disappointed they are only available for the 85xx series device right now. Hopefully the response to this case will be good, and OtterBox will expand production to other device models. 

The new colored Commuter Series cases can be purchased directly from OtterBox at this time. For more info on the Strength case, check out the video and press release after the jump.
