  • Otterbox first introduced its Defender series case for the iPad last year. Now, it's got a version that provides ultimate protection for the new BlackBerry Playbook. It's made out of the same high-impact polycarbonate armor shell coated with silicone rubber. The PlayBook version sells for $69.95, with the iPad 2 and XOOM cases selling for $89.95, respectively.

  • The case is a complete enclosure which allows the device to remain in the armor for the rest of its natural life. All of the buttons, ports and receptacles are fully usable through the polycarbonate/rubber casing.
