SAN DIEGO, Sept. 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- LifeProof®, the award-winning maker of all-protective, everyday cases for smartphones and tablets, announces the availability of nuud for Apple®( )iPad® mini, the first waterproof, all-protective Apple iPad mini case without a screen cover. The nuud provides trusted LifeProof protection against water, drops, dirt and snow in a slim, sleek design - providing the ultimate touch-screen experience.
LifeProof's patent-pending Screenless Technology uses a compression lock system that forms a waterproof seal between the case and the device touch screen and delivers complete protection while maintaining perfect clarity and touch. The first of its kind, the LifeProof nuud case is screen-free, yet is still waterproof, with an IP68 rating for submerging 6.6 ft. (2 m) underwater for one hour. The case is also built to survive a 4 ft. (1.2 m) drop and exceeds military specifications for shock, drop and vibration protection.
"We are very excited to introduce the LifeProof nuud case for iPad mini," said Executive Vice President of Global Sales, Fredrik Torstensson. "Building on the tremendous success of the LifeProof nuud line of cases, we know our customers will enjoy the combination of protection and functionality this case provides for their iPad mini. LifeProof nuud revolutionizes the case industry because it's the first and only waterproof, drop proof line of cases to allow customers to touch the actual glass of their device screen, allowing for a flawless touch experience with unimpeded visual clarity."
