Ft. Lauderdale, FL – (June 21, 2012) – Ballistic, designers of advanced mobile accessories, is thrilled to announce the newest addition to its state-of-the-art case collection, the Shell Gel (SG) Maxx. Equipped with the first-ever molded screen protector for the Samsung Galaxy, Ballistic’s new Shell Gel Maxx case guarantees superior protection for your smartphone screen.

The Shell Gel (SG) Maxx Case was introduced to the market as a response to consumer demands for even greater protection while still minimizing bulk. It comes equipped with the molded screen protector that offers additional impact protection with a trendy, durable exterior.

Unlike competitors “film based” screen protectors, this first-of-its-kind molded screen protector is guaranteed to deliver the utmost in protection given its thicker form factor. The Shell Gel (SG) Maxx case also comes equipped with a lay-on-table feature so the screen will not even touch the surface when laid flat on a table.

The Ballistic Shell Gel (SG) Maxx is a beefed up version of the original Shell Gel. Similar to the original, this case integrates an outermost layer, which is made of soft rubber (TPU) for shock absorption, a second layer which is crafted with impact resistant polycarbonate, and a third layer built with soft outer TPU. The Maxx collection, however, “ups the ante” by incorporating stronger corners for increased drop protection, a horizontal holster, and integrated port covers.

The SG Maxx will also be available for iPhone 4/4S this summer.

The Ballistic SG Maxx is now available for the new Samsung Galaxy S III in color combinations of White/Pink, Cobalt, Charcoal/White, Black/White, and Black/Black for $49.99 at and in Charcoal/White at AT&T retail stores nationwide.
