We’ve been talking about Ballistic and their fantastic mobile device protection for quite some time now. It used to be that only iPhone owners got to enjoy the multi-layered protection “Designed to Survive Life” that Ballistic cases offer; then Blackberry owners got in on the act–and now, Ballistic is making Fascinate, Evo and Droid X owners equally happy. The Samsung Fascinate gets the Ballistic HC and its 5 layer protection, while the Motorola Droid X gets to travel a bit lighter with the Ballistic SG; the HTC Evo gets both cases. Regardless of the model you end up with, Ballistic cases offer first rate protection for your device, with prices ranging from $34.99 to $49.99; they can be found at AT&T retail stores, as well as Att.com and GoBallisticCase.com.

Ft. Lauderdale, FL (January 26, 2011) – Ballistic, designers of advanced mobile accessories, is thrilled to announce the debut of the Ballistic SG™ (Shell Gel), available for Motorola’s Droid X and HTC’s Evo; and the Ballistic HC™ (Hard Core), now available for HTC’s Evo and Samsung’s Fascinate.
The Ballistic HC case is the most technically advanced rugged case on the market. It features an optional outer gel skin layer, front facing inward holster and built-in screen protector. Speaker and microphone openings are covered in a water resistant mesh. Additionally, Camera / Flash openings have an integrated clear lens cover to protect them from scratches. The optional silicone layer incorporates innovative connector seals, to ensure that dirt and other corrosive materials do not enter into the ports.
The Ballistic SG case offers superior protection in a slimmer form factor. It integrates an outermost layer, which is made of soft Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) for shock absorption. This TPU layer is co-molded to the middle layer which is made of tough impact resistant polycarbonate. These two layers combine to offer a formidable defense against everyday damage. The inner-most layer is made of soft silicone, with strong Ballistic Corners™ to absorb the shock of a drop.
“The Ballistic SG and HC have offered customers worldwide a rugged option to protect their mobile devices from everyday drops and scratches,” said Adam Stubin, VP of Business Development, Ballistic. “Given the immense popularity of these two models, we wanted to be sure we offered the same protection to other mobile devices users, guaranteeing these additional devices will survive life!”
arious models of the Ballistic HC and SG cases are available at AT&T retail locations as well as www.att.com andwww.goballisticcase.com for $34.99-$49.99. They are available in a variety of colors and finishes, which are sure to match anyone’s style. Ballistic will also be releasing the SG for HTC’s Evo in late February.
The Ballistic® brand was realized 6 years ago when the owner was getting out of his car and his phone fell, cracking the screen. He believed there had to be a way to offer consumers a high level of protection in a case that still looked good.
The Ballistic engineers designed private label holsters and belt clips that simply would not break. During this time, the company made millions of OEM branded holsters and belt clips.
As smart phones became more popular, the need for drop protection became necessary. Ballistic engineers examined their competitor’s products and knew they could do better. The result is now a line of a variety of Ballistic cases. These cases provide the most advanced degree of drop protection currently in the market.
We think everyone will drop their phone. We say, “Just Drop It!”–as long as you are using a Ballistic case. Ballistic cases are Designed to Survive Life!™
