Are you a scuba diver, backpacker or do you enjoy any other kind of extreme outdoor activities!? If so and you don't want to miss your Pocket PC or Pocket PC Phone Edition, the Otter box might be the perfect accessory for you.
Tim from Timuna Sea just pointed me last week to the Otter box Medium Slim which I've got for a review today and he was completely right, it's the perfect size for my xda as well as for other Pocket PCs like the iPAQ H5450.
The boxes are made with a fiberglass reinforced ABS resin with an O ring seal and foam lined walls. According to the print on the top of the box the box has a watertight depth of 30 meters (100ft) which is more or less a
static value - there is no GSM coverage under water. ;-)
The Otter box can carry one Pocket PC perfect and with the cushioning it's stored safe without fearing any scratches!
The Otter box seems to be the right solution for everybody who wants to carry the Pocket PC - doesn't matter where. I remind well when I went last time to my favorite diving location Boracay/Philippines (I'm always diving at Victory Divers and hey, the guy on the tanks is me ;-). I've carried my cell phone and my Notebook with me and you had to jump from the boat into the water and walk 10 meters to the beach; through the water. Can you imagine how I felt, knowing my Notebook is in my backpack? Well, today I wouldn't carry my Notebook with me anymore but at least my xda and knowing my xda is protected with the Otter box would makes the boat trip even more relaxing.
And there is a another good reason (beside the voice and data functionalities of the xda) to carry your Pocket PC if you go diving, you can log your dives with a software like Dive Assistant 2.0 which is a complete tool for scuba diving including logging, planning and equipment.
But hey, you are not confined to a wet environment but can utilize it in any rugged situation where additional protection may be required.
The boxes are available from Timuna Sea's online shop at Â£ 14,00 (around US$ 22.00). Oversea shipping is accepted!
For me it's another cool accessory I'm sure I will not miss anymore, latest if the box (incl. my Pocket PC) drops into the water and hey - 22.00 $ is less than buying a new Pocket PC! ;-)
