If you’re looking for the ultimate protection for all of your technological gear, you can’t really go wrong by choosing a protective case from the good people at OtterBox. People have done tests where they threw these cases against walls and drove over them with SUVs, only to reveal that the product remains largely unscathed.
Extending this level of protection to a few new handsets today, OtterBox announced that it now has protective cases for the Motorola Droid, Palm Pre, Palm Pre Plus, Palm Pixi, and Palm Pixi Plus. These will protect them from “scatches, bump, shock and everyday wear.”
AT&T plans to offer the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus to their network of 80 million customers. This will expand AT&T’s offering of available smartphones to include those of the Palm webOS type, the only to hit their network.
The Palm Pre Plus has a slider keyboard and 16GB of storage. It will sell for $149.99 with a two-year plan after a $100 mail-in rebate. Palm’s Pixi Plus is their slimmest phone and it adds Wi-Fi, a full QWERTY keyboard and two color choices of black or blue (exclusive to AT&T) on for $49.99 with a two-year plan.
You didn’t think that Palm was going to have all the fun with the Palm smartphone platform, right? After so many rumors, it has now been officially announced that the Palm Pre Plus and the Palm Pixi Plus will be launching through Verizon Wireless this coming Monday, January 25.
On January 25, exclusive to Verizon Wireless, the Palm Pre Plus and Palm Pixi Plus will be offered with vital updates.
