Gentec announces sales milestone for its popular Roots Tuff Skin protective cases

Friday October 23, 2009

Gentec International is pleased to celebrate the first anniversary of its Roots Tuff Skin product line, having sold more than 100,000 of the protective rubber cases since the launch last October. After a year of steady growth, Roots Tuff Skin cases continue to be the number one protective skin sold in Canada.

Roots Tuff Skins have been custom-designed to ensure a snug, secure fit and are crafted from extra-thick, 3mm silicone rubber to provide maximum protection for your delicate iPod and Blackberry portable electronic devices—even in the roughest conditions. They have even passed an independent 4 ft. drop test performed by Onspex CSA Group.

Each case includes an LCD screen protector for added protection. The carabiner clip and holster with swivel belt-clip let you carry your device with ease. For added versatility, the swivel belt clip converts to a three-angle, easel-back stand to support the holster for vertical or horizontal desktop viewing with iPhones and iPods.

Roots Tuff Skin protective rubber cases are available for iPhone 3G, iPod touch, iPod touch 2G, iPod nano 3G and 4G, BlackBerry Curve 8300 and 8900, BlackBerry Pearl 8100, 8110, 8120, 8130, Blackberry Bold, and Blackberry Storm. Coming soon for Blackberry Tour, Bold 9700, Curve 8520 and Storm 2. Retail price ranges from $29.99 to $34.99.
