Pelican Products (http://www.pelican.com) has introduced a range of HardBack Protector Cases as travel armor for portable electronics from 7-inch and 10-inch tablets to 14-inch and 15-inch laptops.
Produced from a design partnership with BMW DesignWorks, the HardBack series cases are built with all the legendary features of a Pelican case: crush resistant, watertight and an automatic pressure equalization valve that prevents vacuum lock to make it easier to open at any altitude, says Dinis Jablonski, director of Product Management.
In addition, all cases in the series offer anti-scratch foam inserts to add another layer of protection for delicate electronics. To ensure that they stay shut in tough conditions, they also sport stainless steel hardware and easy-snap latches.
The Pelican 1055 HardBack case is designed to protect tablet-type computers and eReaders up to 8-inches including the Kindle Fire, NOOK Color, BlackBerry Playbook and Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.1.
The Pelican 1065 HardBack case is engineered to protect tablet-type computers up to 10 inches. This includes the iPad, iPad 2 and the Motorola Xoom.
The Pelican 1075 HardBack is available to fit 10.1-inch tablets, external hard drives and netbooks.
The Pelican i1075 iPad Case is also available with features that include a specially designed interior that protects and organizes the iPad or iPad 2, Apple Bluetooth wireless keyboard, power adapter and download cables.
The Pelican 1085 HardBack case is a completely redesigned laptop case that will replace the 1080 HardBack case in the Pelican case line. It protects computers up to 14 inches, features a nylon shoulder strap and weighs a mere 2.59 pounds without foam.
