OtterBox 3600 Case Review
By Chris De Herrera, Copyright 2006

 Version 1.00  Revised 2/21/2006

With the OtterBox 3600 rugged case (Armor by Otter, $99.95) you can protect just about any Pocket PC.  I tested the OtterBox 3600 case with the i-mate Jasjar, one of the larger Pocket PCs. The 3600 case will hold a device that is smaller than 6.75 x 3.60 x 1.125 inches.  The case is designed to be water resistant to 3 meters, dustproof and drop resistant.  I found the case was long and wide (8.5 x 5.25 x 2.4 inches) so users with small hands will appreciate the neoprene strap on the back which will allow them to hold it.

Here's a picture of the foam insert that helps hold the Pocket PC in place.

Here's a picture of where you can replace the bottom or top access ports with accessories.

Also, OtterBox offers a large line of accessories for the OtterBox 3600 which allow you to plug in cables while maintaining the dustproof and ruggedness of the case. The accessories also include the ability to use certain peripherals while keeping the case waterproof as well.

To navigate, I had to use the stylus over the thin membrane separating the screen and the Pocket PC.  This works well however if you push too hard you may see stretch marks in the cover.  Also, if you drop your OtterBox 3600 case in the water, it will float!  Overall I think that the OtterBox 3600 case is a good fit for larger Pocket PCs because of the additional accessories available.
