New Otterbox Defender Case for iPad 3

I had a chance to see the newest OtterBox Defender Series for the New iPad (3rd Generation) & iPad 2 – Black case just the other day and was impressed with the fit and the smoother style of this case. Having purchased Otterbox cases for iPad 1 and iPad 2’s they remain a trusted and sturdy case that has protected the school’s iPads while being flung on the floor, accidentally dropped from students hand or knocked off the tray of a four-foot stander onto a hard floor – without any damage!  However, the iPad 2 case had some issues with kids pulling on the rubber casing causing it to separating and some plastic components not wearing so well.

The new OtterBox Defender Series for the New iPad (3rd Generation) & iPad 2 – Black
case ($49.) appears to have those issues resolved showing a flatter contour and compact components on its protective case. Like many of the other new cases it has a protective screen integrated into the case so you don’t have to buy or apply a screen protector. Here are some images of what the new iPad 3 Otterbox case looks like:

It also comes in fun colors like white, pink and blue (89.95) but at a littler steeper cost for the cute colors.

Although I am trialing some different sturdy cases, I like the new styling of the Otterbox case for iPad 3 and recognize how well they protect our student dedicated iPad’s and how well my Otterbox iPhone case withstands the abuse I give it daily. With the new style of case I’d buy the iPad 3 Otterbox cases without much hesitation.

What is your favorite iPad or iPod Touch case?
