LifeProof Announces nüüd Case for the Apple iPad Mini
Featuring innovative waterproof, drop proof, dirt proof and snow proof protection with a screen you can actually touch
SAN DIEGO - Sept. 4, 2013 — LifeProof®, the award-winning maker of all-protective, everyday cases for smartphones and tablets, announces the availability of nüüd for Apple® iPad® mini, the first waterproof, all-protective Apple iPad mini case without a screen cover. The nüüd provides trusted LifeProof protection against water, drops, dirt and snow in a slim, sleek design – providing the ultimate touch-screen experience.
LifeProof’s patent-pending Screenless Technology uses a compression lock system that forms a waterproof seal between the case and the device touch screen and delivers complete protection while maintaining perfect clarity and touch. The first of its kind, the LifeProof nüüd case is screen-free, yet is still waterproof, with an IP68 rating for submerging 6.6 ft. (2 m) underwater for one hour. The case is also built to survive a 4 ft. (1.2 m) drop and exceeds military specifications for shock, drop and vibration protection.
“We are very excited to introduce the LifeProof nüüd case for iPad mini,” said Executive Vice President of Global Sales, Fredrik Torstensson. “Building on the tremendous success of the LifeProof nüüd line of cases, we know our customers will enjoy the combination of protection and functionality this case provides for their iPad mini. LifeProof nüüd revolutionizes the case industry because it’s the first and only waterproof, drop proof line of cases to allow customers to touch the actual glass of their device screen, allowing for a flawless touch experience with unimpeded visual clarity.”
The most recent in a line of industry-defining innovations, LifeProof nüüd technology gives users unprecedented freedom to take their device everywhere without worry. Users can watch movies in the pool, follow the messiest of recipes in the kitchen and entertain the kids on family trips. Workers can stay connected on the job, no matter the conditions, and still have full access to all device functions.
