Otterbox goes designer with Symmetry series cases for iPhone

Durable mobile device case maker Otterbox introduced a new line of cases for the iPhone 5, 5s, 5c (and Samsung Galaxy S4) at this week's CES called the Symmetry Series. They combine Otterbox's reputation for toughness with a designer flair that might appeal to iPhone users looking to make a personal statement with their choice of iPhone case.

The Symmetry Series touts features designed for strength: a raised beveled edge around the display to help keep the screen safe, an internal synthetic rubber lining with honeycomb coring to help reduce shock on the phone, and a slender one-piece molded case that's easy to install.

Expect to pay $39.95 for Symmetry cases in solid colors and $44.95 for graphic designs when they go on sale this spring.
