Giveaway: Seidio OBEX waterproof shockproof case
Thursday, February 28, 2013 @ 2:48pm

The iPhone 5 is a fantastic device, and it can do many things -- but it isn't particularly able to protect itself from water, snow and coffee or other hazards (such as being dropped from the table) without taking some damage. Fortunately, there is a fix for that -- it's called the Seidio OBEX waterproof shockproof case for the iPhone 5, and MacNN has one to give away. Read on to find out more about this case and how you can enter to win.



The Seidio OBEX utilizes advanced technology to safeguard the iPhone 5 against drops, dust, dirt and water while maintaining screen sensitivity and sound clarity. It is able to provide protection against complete submersion for 30 minutes in 2 meter (6.5 feet) deep water, and the polycarbonate and thermoplastic polyurethane materials absorb shock when the device is dropped from heights of up to six feet. The screen protector sits flush with the screen. so it does not leave behind any watermark effects and retains the screen’s clarity, while rubber silicone stoppers protect the headphone and USB ports. This case retails for $80 at SedioOnline.com. To enter, click here, agree to our terms and conditions, and answer one skill-testing question. Mailing list signup is required to be selected -- if you have already signed up for a mailing list, please place a check in the box next to the list you have signed up for. Giveaway is open to US residents and closes on March 8, 2013.
