IntelliSkin offers ruggedized docking and protection for Microsoft Surface 3 and is licensed within Microsoft’s Designed for Surface program

IntelliSkin for Surface 3 enables us to offer a rugged protective case that protects what customers value the most.

As more and more businesses roll out mobile devices to fulfill the roles originally occupied by specialized rugged devices, the need to protect them has led to bulky cases, frequent replacements and damaged devices. RAM Mounts and Microsoft have worked closely with customers Mounts to identify this need and come up with a solution. Today, RAM Mounts introduces IntelliSkin™ for Surface 3. IntelliSkin is RAM Mounts' first product through the Designed for Surface 3rd party accessories licensing program, which ensures a quality fit, finish and compatibility with Surface devices.

IntelliSkin is a protective device case that simplifies the frequent docking and undocking of smartphones and tablets. Warehouse workers can now keep devices charged and data synced and farmers can have crop data at their fingertips while planting fields. IntelliSkin features an integrated power connector compatible with any GDS™ (Global Docking System) charging dock. This prevents damage to the device charging port and creates a universal docking platform compatible with any device wrapped with an IntelliSkin case.

“IntelliSkin for Surface 3 enables us to offer a rugged protective case that protects what customers value the most — Surface 3's built-in kickstand and ability to move easily from tablet to laptop mode with the click-in keyboard,” said Aaron Hersey, vice president of sales and marketing at RAM Mounts. “IntelliSkin with GDS docking technology is a perfect solution for continual docking/undocking since it keeps that versatility intact and makes it possible to use smartphones and tablets with fewer concerns in rugged environments where devices are moved frequently among trucks, equipment and offices.”

“The Designed for Surface program was created to address the growing demand for Surface accessories to complete a wide range of use scenarios in business, at home and on the go,” said Brian Crum, Sr Product Marketing Manager, Microsoft Surface. “We look forward to continuing our collaboration with RAM Mounts to better serve our customers and create compelling solutions together.”

The Designed for Surface program allows accessory manufacturers to really embrace Surface as a 2-in-1 device and help people move seamlessly with their Surface between tablet and laptop experiences. Microsoft is working with leading manufacturers to advance accessories that make Surface more useful when touch is the interface of choice and even accessories that are thoughtful about incorporating the Surface Type Cover click-in keyboard and Surface Pen — elements that are unique to Surface open up a world of possibilities for helping people do more.

The IntelliSkin for Microsoft Surface 3 is available now and is compatible with the Microsoft Surface 3 Screen Protector and Type Cover. The IntelliSkin leaves the full-sized USB 3.0 port, mini DisplayPort, and 3.5mm audio ports exposed for easy access. The thick corners of the Intelliskin allow for the attachment of a neck or shoulder strap accessory while also providing extra drop protection to the device. The integrated pen loop secures your Surface Pen on the go.

GDS sets a new standard by creating a uniform platform for connecting a variety of portable devices with power and data communication. RAM Mounts’ GDS platform provides compatibility with many different devices. Plus, it offers docking stations with scalability as smartphone and tablet manufacturers introduce new generations of devices.

IntelliSkin for Surface 3 joins the IntelliSkin family of cases that are currently available for the Samsung Galaxy line of phones and tablets such as the S5 and S6, Tab S 8.4 and 10.5, Galaxy Tab 4 7.0 and 10.1, Galaxy Tab A 8.0 and 9.7.
