Take note: Tech21's new Note9 cases and screen protectors are notable as always


Tech21's new Note9 range of cases and screen protectors have arrived, along with a notably new case in Pantone’s 2018 Colour of the Year: Ultra Violet.

Tech21. The company is extremely well known for its mobile device impact protection solutions, and is always ready with new cases and screen protectors for the latest major Apple and Samsung devices.

Now that the Note9 has launched, and is just about to hit retail in the next couple of days as I type, it should come as no surprise that Tech21's new "Designed for Samsung" range for the Galaxy Note9 has launched, too.

As the company explains, the range features its "most popular designs, including the Evo Check, Pure Clear and Evo Wallet in brand new colours, as well as the first Evo Glass screen protector for curved screens".

And. "with the introduction of the Evo Check in Pantone’s 2018 Colour of the Year, Ultra Violet, customers can protect their new Samsung Galaxy Note9 in style, drop after drop".

This "protect drop after drop" business is a core part of the Tech21 offering, and I've certainly found it very useful, indeed, as I've accidentally dropped my phones for various reasons, and, with Tech21, have never experienced any kind of failure or screen breakage.

The company also says its cases "enhance a smartphone’s original beauty", too, and it's all thanks to a "dedicated design team" which "always matches the latest fashion and colour trends".

This fashion meets protection focus is exemplified with tech21’s new Evo Check for Samsung Galaxy Note9 in the 2018 Pantone Color of the Year, Ultra Violet.

We're told the Galaxy Note9’s curved screen "inspired tech21 to re-engineer its Evo Glass screen protector. Curved for edge-to-edge protection, Evo Glass not only protects the Samsung Galaxy Note9’s screen drop after drop, but it also protects it from day-to-day scratches".

And, "as a trusted ‘Designed for Samsung’ partner, tech21 works in collaboration with Samsung to design each of their products. By working in partnership right from the start, their products are designed to work perfectly with Samsung devices".

John Doughty, Tech21 chief executive, said: “As a ‘Made for Samsung partner, the protection that Tech21 cases offer means that your Samsung Galaxy Note9 can look as good tomorrow as it does today.

“Inspired by the level of innovation that we see coming from manufacturers like Samsung, we continuously challenge ourselves to create the most intelligent impact protection on the planet. For this launch we’re particularly proud of Evo Check for its advanced materials and refined design and the curved Evo Glass screen protector for delivering edge-to-edge protection, drop after drop.”

Here's the new range of Samsung Galaxy Note9 cases and screen protectors:

Active Vs. Passive DWDM Solutions

An active approach to your growing optical transport network & connectivity needs.

Building dark fibre network infrastructure using WDM technology used to be considered a complex challenge that only carriers have the means to implement.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
