OtterBox adds to Galaxy S4 case choices


Whether you want a little bit of protection for your new Galaxy S4 or a lot, OtterBox reckons it has your Samsung handset covered.

iTWire reported yesterday on the Droidax case for the Samsung Galaxy S4 that provides an auxiliary battery. But what if you're looking for protection rather than power?

OtterBox's top-of-the-line case for the Galaxy S4 is the $59.95 Defender (pictured above) "which protects the phone against drops, shocks and the hardest impact" according to company officials.

This is achieved through a solid polycarbonate shell and an impact-absorbing layer, along with a built-in screen protector.

Not quite so hard on your phone? There's the Commuter ($49.95) dual-layer case, or the Reflex ($34.95) with impact absorbing edges on a polycarbonate shell.

For those who just want a screen protector, OtterBox provides a choice of four models ranging in price between $19.95 and $29.95, including one that hides what you're doing from bystanders.

Details of the OtterBox range for the Galaxy S4 are available here.

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.
