A long time ago I reviewed the Dry Doc water proof cases, and they weren’t bad. The Joy Factory has released something similar but I think better that can be used for pretty much any phone or gadget you own. They are reusable sleeves that are waterproof, dust proof and pretty much everything proof and they’re called the Bubble Shield. Prices are very inexpensive for phones and small devices at $9.95 for two of them or five for only $19.95. You can get them for gadgets, phones and even tablets and they have even tougher versions available as well for higher price of course. They’re taking pre-orders now for October shipment.
The Joy Factory, Inc. today unveiled its series of protective and reusable BubbleShield sleeves for the latest iPhone® 4S and Amazon Kindle Fire. The series includes advanced protection for the iPad® and other leading manufacturer brands of tablets, eReaders and smartphones.
The Joy Factory’s BubbleShield series include three options:
The BubbleShield for iPhone 4S and smartphones – The line of protective sleeves offers a water resistant case to help the iPhone 4S and other smartphones stay clean and dry. The transparent front and back cover retain the phone’s full touch screen options, including the camera. The re-sealable IPX5 water-proof rated enclosure is designed to allow users to take their phone in almost any environment, while guarding against dirt, sand, oil, grease, water, fingerprints and other undesirable substances. The BubbleShield for iPhone 4S and other smartphones is offered at an MSRP of $9.95 as a two pack or at $19.95 for a five pack.
BubbleShield for iPads and Tablets – BubbleShield provides iPad and tablet users advanced protection without sacrificing use in any type of environment, whether it’s in a doctor’s office, manufacturing facility, kitchen or sporting event. Featuring a dual zip enclosure, BubbleShield meets the IPX5 waterproof standard. The special placement ring embedded on the top corner is included so the sleeved case can easily be transported. The BubbleShield is offered at the MSRP of $14.95 for a two pack or $19.95 for three sleeves.
BubbleShield for eReaders – NOOK™, Kindle Fire and eReader users can effortlessly protect their device while enjoying their favorite ebook at the beach, poolside or wherever life takes them. The smaller, form fitting sleeve also accommodates popular 7-inch tablets including the Samsung Galaxy Tab™, Blackberry® PlayBook™ and HTC Flyer™. Users simply slip the eReader into the clear BubbleShield sleeve and it is protected with an IPX5 waterproof rating. The BubbleShield for eReaders is offered at the MSRP of $14.95 for a three pack or $19.95 for four sleeves.
BubbleShield Pro – The BubbleShield Pro is ideal for professionals in extreme work environments including medical technicians, restaurant servers and warehouse staff or for outdoor enthusiasts who may prefer to use their tablet on the go. The BubbleShield Pro offers a handled carrying bag that fits today’s popular tablets. The ergonomic design includes a three-zip re-sealable enclosure and a transparent protective cover, which easily wipes clean and provides greater flexibility for use in “shared” environments such as schools, restaurants and industrial and outdoor settings where water, liquids, dirt and grime pose a hazard to the tablet. The BubbleShield Pro meets the waterproof standard of IPX7, which rates devices immersed within one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. The BubbleShiedPro is offered at the MSRP of $49.95.
The BubbleShield line is currently available for pre-orders at www.thejoyfactory.com, with shipments slated to begin through select retailers and major online outlets in late October 2011.
