Pelican 1075 HardBack Case Protects Netbooks and Tablet Computers

TORRANCE, CA - Jul 20, 2011

As the popularity of netbook and tablet devices continues to grow in the mobile computing market, they are projected to account for roughly 35% of the global market by 2014. To offer legendary protection for these extremely popular devices, Pelican Products, Inc., the global leader in both the design and manufacture of high-performance protective case solutions, has introduced the Pelican 1075 HardBack™.

Designed as watertight/crush-resistant armor for tablet style computers and Netbooks, the case was developed in a unique partnership between Pelican and BMW Designworks (a division of BMW). “We are pleased to introduce the Pelican 1075 as a unique 24/7 lifestyle product that combines a compelling industrial/consumer design with Pelican engineering and material innovation,” said Dinis Jablonski, Director of Product Management. “The Pelican 1075 focuses on latest trends in technology, iPad2, tablets and netbooks to aid in providing unique protective solutions to our wide customer base.”

Fitting in most soft bags, the Pelican 1075 will protect just about any sensitive electronic device up to 10” (including brands such as Apple®, Dell® and Sony®) from the rigors of travel. The 1075 sports a high-impact, heat and chemically resistant composite shell that will stand up to some of the harshest conditions known to man. The Pelican 1075also features a sturdy, removable nylon shoulder strap so travelers can keep a firm hold on their gear.

As additional protection, the case features a shock-absorbing plush foam liner (with impact-protection cell cushions) and a strong, easy-snap, polymer latch to ensure that the computer stays secure and scratch free. The case’s tongue-and-groove lid construction and polymer o-ring creates a watertight seal and its built-in, automatic pressure equalization valve keeps moisture out and makes it easier to open the case at any altitude.

The Pelican 1075 HardBackwith computer case liner is also available with Pick N Pluck™ foam. The Pelican i1075 HardBack (coming soon) featuring a foam insert to protect, secure and display the iPad™ and iPad2 and accessories will also be available. Like all Pelican products, they are backed by a Legendary Guarantee of Excellence.
