Fort Collins, COLO.-Otter Products, LLC. introduces the OtterBox 1990 a sleek, stylish, semi-rugged case to protect the Samsung Q1 Ultra and Q1 Ultra Premium UMPCs from Samsung Electronics America, Inc. As part of the Defender Series line, the 1990 safeguards from drops, bumps and scratches while still allowing complete interaction with all navigation keys, I/O ports, camera and webcam right through the case. Ultra-mobile enthusiasts and businesses employing ultra-mobile product solutions now have even more mobility!

The OtterBox 1990 maintains the small form factor of the UMPC while still providing three durable layers of protection:
  • Layer 1: Thermal formed protective clear membrane slides on to safeguard screen and keys from scratches, dirt and dust* (layer optional depending on the level of ruggedization desired)
  • Layer 2: Hi-impact polycarbonate shell snaps together over the device
  • Layer 3: Silicone skin wraps over the case to provide additional protection from bump and shock
“Mobility without compromising device ruggedness is everything and the OtterBox 1990 allows Q1 Ultra and Q1 Ultra Premium users even more convenience on the go,” said Curt Richardson CEO of Otter Products, LLC. “The case provides protection from drops and scratches and offers a sense of security so people can truly work anywhere like on the airplane, in a cab, while waiting in line or rushing to a big presentation.”

“Additionally, the OtterBox 1990 is ideal for those vertical market applications that require additional protection. These applications include healthcare, repair and maintenance workers, hospitality, inventory management, sales automation, education, construction, field research, real estate, insurance adjusters and others.”

“Samsung Electronics is very excited about the release of the OtterBox 1990. OtterBox is the industry’s leading developer of rugged and semi-rugged cases for the mobile PC industry, and Samsung strongly believes that this new solution will generate incremental business for both companies, especially as the new UMPC product category continues to expand. Samsung welcomes our new partnership with OtterBox,” said Bret Berg Senior Product Marketing Manager, Samsung Electronics America, Inc.

Engineered with convenience in mind, the OtterBox 1990 case offers an interchangeable hand strap on the back that can be switched to the right or left side depending on the user. Additional carrying options consist of the Samsung wrist lanyard (included with Q1 Ultra and Q1 Ultra Premium UMPCs) or OtterBox offers an optional shoulder strap kit.

The OtterBox 1990 comes in black silicone on a black polycarbonate shell or black silicone on a yellow polycarbonate shell. Black cases work perfectly for military, emergency services, government or general users, and yellow cases are ideal for construction, field force automation and industrial customers. The case accommodates standard (4 cell) and extended (6 cell) batteries. An included tethered stylus with external stylus storage and a flip stand for multimedia use provide the ultimate experience and protection in one compact solution.
