Fort Lauderdale, Fla. - Ballistic is introducing today a new ruggedized case for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.
The Ballistic Tough Jacket offers three layers of protection: an inner silicone layer, an impact-resistant hard plastic shell and a shock-absorbent polymer layer.
The Jacket includes the company's proprietary reinforced Ballistic Corners, which adds a stronger level of shock absorption for the corners of the tablet, the company said. It also includes a front-cover screen protector that can be removed and snapped to the back to act as a kickstand, allowing hands-free viewing in landscape orientation.
"Large touchscreen devices require an even greater amount of security to guarantee that such a big investment is properly protected," said Adam Stubin, business development VP. "By now offering our customers this reliable protection for their BlackBerry PlayBook, we are progressing towards our future of creating innovative and dependable cases for the plethora of tablets and other devices on the market."
The Tough Jacket retails for $69.99.
Ballistic is an authorized supplier of Built For Blackberry products.
