Chicago, IL (PRWEB) July 28, 2014
In response to schools adapting stylus use on iPads, uuber is now offering the rugged Slim Tough Case without a built-in clear screen protector, for improved touch performance. The STC is available for iPad Air, Mini, Mini with Retina Display, and previous iPad 2, 3, and 4 generations.
uuber’s popular Slim Tough Case is available in 8 fabulous colors. Purple and orange have been added to the existing selection of black, blue, red, green, yellow and gray. The Slim Tough Case line has been extremely popular in school deployments. It features a multi-layer construction using an inner hard case, outer rubber skin, and a built-in screen protector. The new G4 case for iPad Air features extra padding around all corners, improved scratch resistance on the screen protector, additional stands for propping the iPad at a low typing angle in any orientation, and a thin-profile that fits nicely in Bretford and other charging carts.
It has been reported that iPads deployed in schools suffer damage rates of up to 10%-15%, with broken screens being the most common. According to UK's Daily Mail Online, "School that spent £500,000 giving its pupils iPads admits that HALF are now broken", read more here: http://dailym.ai/1vNrLcd. Although cases such as the Otterbox Defender and Griffin Survivor offer good protection, they’re too thick to fit in the popular Bretford charging cart used in schools.
uuber designed the STC G4 for schools by listening and incorporating customer feedback. Combining the best quality material with advanced engineering, the G4 case is built to last. The company is so confident with the G4’s durability, they just announced a Lifetime Warranty for school purchases. During the lifetime of the G4 case, if the case is broken for any reason, even if it’s caused by accidental dropping on the floor, uuber will repair or replace the case at no cost. The customer is only responsible for sending the broken case back to the company.
The fourth generation Slim Tough Case G4 offers multi-layer protection using a combination of (1) an outer soft rubber shell, (2) an inner polycarbonate hard case, and (3) a scratch-resistant lens covering the screen. This case is supremely shock absorbent, yet allows the user full access to buttons and charging ports. The built-in kickstand is reinforced with stainless steel pivots and slides, making it virtually unbreakable. It works in both vertical and horizontal orientations, and also functions as a handle for holding the iPad with just one hand.
“The iPad Slim Tough Case G4 is made for kids and students,” says Jimmy Sun, president of uuberstore.com. “It offers all the features schools asked for – industry-leading drop protection, built-in screen protection, and is Bretford compatible.”
To make sure the case adequately protects the iPad in any situation, uuber put the Slim Tough Case through the “ultimate drop test.” The STC protected the iPhone from a 20-foot free fall to a paved driveway. The phone escaped without a scratch, and was recording video the whole time! Watch the drop test video here: http://youtu.be/cTZe5ziR8LU.
