ONTARIO, California, United States of America — Trident Case™, a leading manufacturer of stylishly designed but rugged mobile phone and tablet cases, today announced the availability of its new Cyclops™ case for the Microsoft Surface 3™ tablet, which is designed to protect the device from drops, spills, dirt and moisture.

“The smaller, more portable Surface 3 is perfect for the on-the-go lifestyle, and, because of that, it requires complete protection from most any accident,” said Trident Vice President of Marketing Vickie Achee. “Our new Surface 3 Cyclops case is able to provide that degree of protection, while also minimizing bulk and maximizing style.”

Overmolded with TPE and polycarbonate, Trident’s Cyclops case for the Surface 3 protects tablets against drops and other impacts while simultaneously boasting an ultra slim and adaptable design. The user-friendly case guarantees convenience as well, as it is compatible with all angles of the Surface 3 Kickstand.  Additionally, a removable cover port enables seamless use with the Surface 3 Type Cover keyboard, while the case is still on.

Furthermore, to protect the device, water resistant mesh covers speakers and openings to keep dust, dirt and moisture away from the device. Inside the case, a protective lining provides extra padding in case of accidents.

“As tablets become more affordable, more people are able to take advantage of all they offer,” said Achee. “This increase in tablet usage is very apparent in the Education industry and as students and teachers bring their devices from class to class, adequate device protection is of the utmost importance.”

Like all Trident cases, the Cyclops Case for the Surface 3 is made with bio-enhanced polycarbonate, which is recyclable, degradable, and compostable, making it eco-friendly. 

What's more, Trident Case is a participant in Microsoft’s Designed For Surface program, along with a select group of top-quality brands. This is the third product Trident has designed and manufactured as part of this program. Microsoft included Trident Case because of its high level of premium mobile and tablet protection cases, and its thoughtful design that elegantly incorporates kickstand and Type Cover functionality – elements that set Surface apart from other tablets.

“People are increasingly seeking devices that span work and play, can be easily managed and configured, and have the right software to get the job done,” Achee said. “We’re excited to participate in the Microsoft Designed For Surface program for these reasons, and because it further demonstrates our commitment to serving the needs of customers relying on Microsoft devices and services.”

“The Designed For Surface program was created to address the growing demand for Surface accessories to complete a wide range of use scenarios in business, at home and on the go,” said Cyril Belikoff, Senior Director, Microsoft Surface. “We look forward to working closely with our Designed For Surface Program participants to better serve their customers and create compelling solutions together.” 

The Designed For Surface program allows accessory manufacturers to really embrace

Surface as a 2-in-1 device and help people move seamlessly with their Surface between tablet and laptop experiences. Microsoft is working with leading manufacturers to develop accessories that make Surface more useful when touch is the interface of choice and accessories that are thoughtful about incorporating the Surface Type Cover click-in keyboards and Surface Pen – elements that are unique to Surface and open up a world of possibilities for helping people do more. 

Trident’s Microsoft Surface cases are available immediately in black and white at for MSRP of $79.99.
