UAG announces military-grade case for Microsoft's Surface Pro 3
The Surface Pro 3 is, for me, hands-down the most significant device released in 2014. It is designed for both productivity and entertainment and delivers on both. Unfortunately, the tablet can be rather expensive which makes me a bit nervous handling it. Don't get me wrong, it is not fragile, I just cherish it and do not want to break it.
Luckily, a new case is coming on the scene, which should protect the Surface Pro 3 from accidental drops. Urban Armor Gear, a company that makes hardcore, yet affordable, cases for smartphones and tablets announces military-grade Surface Pro 3 protection.
"Available in black and red, Urban Armor Gear's one-piece Microsoft Surface Pro 3 case offers UAG's unique blend of FrogSkin technology (for assured grip in wet or damp conditions) with an impact resistant tactile backing. Microsoft Surface Pro 3 users will enjoy the case's rubber core and bumpers that deflect impact from daily wear-and-tear, as well as occasional hard falls", says Urban Armor Gear.
The manufacturer further explains, "each Urban Armor Gear case, including the Microsoft Surface Pro 3, exhibits UAG’s distinctive form-fitting construction, with easy access to all buttons and ports -- guaranteeing minimal added weight, as well as unobstructed functionality. The UAG case for Microsoft Surface Pro 3 is compatible with the Microsoft Pro Type Cover Keyboard and features an integrated lightweight aluminum adjustable angle kickstand for added convenience. As with all UAG products, the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 case is independently tested to meet military standards for drop and shock as required under MIL-STD 810G-516.6".
Below are the specs and features:
- Compatible with Microsoft Type Cover keyboard
- Feather-light composite construction
- Impact resistant soft core
- Over sized tactile buttons
- Air vents to keep things cool
- Water resistant grip material
- Easy access to touch screen and ports
- Un-compromised audio and video
- Aluminum kick stand with 5 angular positions
- Meets military drop-test standards (MIL STD 810G 516.6) when used with Microsoft Type Cover keyboard
While, I hope no one ever drops any device, it can always happen. Even if you think it will never happen to you, a quality case can be considered an insurance policy just in case. Hell, at $69.99 it is a small price to pay for peace of mind, right?
The case does not ship until 9/24, but you can pre-order here in both red (Rogue) or black (Scout).
