Ontario, Calif. — Trident Case took the wraps off its Cyclops-series cases for the Microsoft Surface 2 as part of its enlistment in the Microsoft Designed for Surface (DFS) program.
Microsoft included Trident Case in DFS “because of its high level of premium mobile and tablet protection cases, in addition to its commitment to sustainability and USA-based manufacturing initiatives,” Trident said.
The TPE and polycarbonate Cyclops case, which can be used with the Surface 2’s built-in kickstand, features a PET screen protector, a removable cover port and impact-resistant TPE corners. It’s said to meet the Military Standard MIL-STD-810G for vibration, dust, sand, rain and drops. All bio-enhanced polycarbonate is recyclable, degradable and compostable, added Trident.
It will be sold in black/black, white/gray and pink/gray for an $89.95 suggested retail.
According to Microsoft’s website, companies that take part in DFS receive guidelines and specs for Surface interoperability and are permitted to use the Microsoft Surface logo on packaging. Only “soft goods” with no electrical connections to the tablet are eligible.
