Economics sometimes works in strange ways. During slow economic times — such as the one we’re currently going through — low-end and cheap products sit on the shelves while high quality and more pricy ones seem to do just fine. This is the situation with the smartphone and tablet case market right now. OtterBox makes a high quality, yet expensive case and it’s flying off the shelves. My most recent OtterBox case is the Defender for my new iPad, and I absolutely love it.
