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 thePelican 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 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 1075focuses 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 1075will protect just about any sensitive electronic device up to 10” (including brands such as Apple®, Dell® and Sony®) from the rigors of travel, the case sports a high-impact, heat and chemically resistant composite shell that will stand up to some of the harshest conditions known to man. ThePelican 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.

ThePelican 1075 HardBackwith computer case liner has an MSRP of $69.95 and is also available with Pick N Pluck™ foam for the same price. ThePelican i1075 Hardback (coming soon) featuring a foam insert to protect, secure and display the iPad™ and iPad2 and accessories will also be available at an MSRP of $84.95. Like all Pelican products, they are backed by a Legendary Guarantee of Excellence.
