Product Review: Otterbox Defender Case for Samsung Galaxy Tab

By Ahsan Currimbhoy

Since the emergence of the iPad, the tablet market has become relevant. While older tablets ran on watered down versions of computer operating systems, this new generation of popular tablets seem to be running on either smartphone operating systems such as iOS, Android and WebOS (upcoming HP/Palm tablet) or full Windows 7 (such as the HP Slate or upcoming Asus Eee Pad). The portability of tablets make it a viable option to carry, moreso than laptops as these operating systems have many applications and tools ideals for both personal and corporate use. Also, given the power and coverage of mobile internet on 3G and 4G, tablets are truly the ultimate device for somebody who is constantly on the go.

This particular 7" tablet by Samsung is running the highly acclaimed Android 2.2 operating system with their popular TouchWiz user interface on top. It features high end hardware, similar to what is found on their Galaxy S series of smartphones (which in the United States includes the Captivate, Vibrant, Fascinate, Epic and Mesmerize) meaning it has the same powerful 1GHz Hummingbird processor (which based on various benchmark tests is one of the fastest, if not the fastest, single core processor on the market), 512MB of RAM and is available with the options of 16GB or 32GB internal storage plus it includes a Micro SD slot expandable up to 32GB more of storage. Unlike the iPad, this tablet also includes a good 3MP rear camera for pictures and videos and a 1.3MP front facing camera for video calls and self-portraits and is capable of making phone calls (either through speakerphone or Bluetooth). This tablet is available by Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.

A great on the go device like this one requires accessories to keep it in pristine condition and in turn preserve the resale value, as a device like this one should retain its value well. There are two products which can provide ultimate protection to all aspects of your phone or tablet, those being a case to protect the body from scratches, scuffs, bumps and drops and a screen protector to protect the most important part of a touchscreen device, the screen.

As somebody who has used cases by many different manufacturers, none impressed me more than Otterbox. The awesome styles coupled with ultimate protection make it the best purchase to protect this expensive and powerful device. This particular case for the Galaxy Tab is a part of the Defender series by Otterbox.

It includes three layers of protection including a high quality polycarbonate shell and a durable silicone skin as well as a clear screen protector. As a result, the entire device is protected. I have also found this particular design by Otterbox to protect devices better than anything else on the market. If you are have or are planning purchasing a Samsung Galaxy Tab, then it you should take a very strong look at the defender case by Otterbox.
