OtterBox to ship its Armor case for Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S on February 22nd
OtterBox, one of the most well known names in protective smartphone cases, started promoting its waterproof Armor series for the Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S last June. But production problems ensued and the long awaited cases will start shipping on February 22nd according to the manufacturer. At first, the case will be available only for the older iPhone models, but later this year the OtterBox Armor will be produced for the newer Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III.

The Armor case has a "thermal plastic shell" and a "medical-grade" stainless-steel latch which together allow a phone to survive 6.6 feet underwater for 30 minutes. The case will also protect your phone from a 10 foot drop onto concrete, and 2 tons of a crushing weight. It will also keep dust and debris out.

To compete with cases like the mophie (got it right!) Juice Pack, OtterBox has introduced the Defender Series with iOn Intelligence. This is a protective case that also features a 1450mAh lithium ion battery which recharges three times faster than the competition. LED indicators let you know how much battery life you have left and an app allows you to "intelligently charge the phone without the need to monitor power levels and turn it on or off." The Defender Series with iON Intelligence is available for both the Apple iPhone 4 and Apple iPhone 4S. There is no word on when the case will be ready for Apple iPhone 5 users.

OtterBox did not divulge pricing information on either model.
