A long time ago, TamsPalm reviewed the OtterBox 3250. It scored really well and has served me well ever since – but Kristin Golliher, the OtterBox PR gal, simply didn’t give up offering me stuff. And when she sent me an email about the teeny tiny OtterBox 1000, I was immediately sold, if just for the cuteness factor. Can the smallest OtterBox live up to its bigger brother? Read on to find out!
My OtterBox was originally a tradeshow press sample that never got picked up – so the packaging probably isn’t the retail one. Nevertheless, it is well done and protected the 1000 on its way to the holy halls of TamsPalm .
Here are a few pictures of the new Otterbox next to a Palm Tungsten T3 and a Palm Treo 600:
Last but not least, here is a video that shows a credit card, a SD card and some money taking a bath and not getting wet:
Overall, the 1000 is a great OtterBox and definitely lives up to the high expectations set up by the 3250. The small size makes the 1000 unsuitable for protecting larger phones or Palm Handhelds – but that’s what the 3250 is for. If you, on the other hand, want to protect a small flip phone, cash or a credit card, the 1000 will serve you great! The price of just 11.49$ makes it a very affordable choice…
