Wondering whether or not you’ll be able to buy an Otterbox for your HTC One ahead of the phone’s launch? While some phones launch without any promise of support from Otterbox (they usually go by consumer demand), the HTC One seems to have gotten the case manufacturer’s attention right away. Coming soon pages for several HTC One cases — including Defender and Commuter designs — have been put up on the company’s website.
You’ll be able to get the Commuter in a multitude of colors, including Black, Glacier, Steel Blue, Lilac, and Punked. The Defender, on the other hand, is coming in Black, Glacier, Blushed and Punked. Finally, a separate RealTree color scheme will be available, and it’ll dress your HTC One up in camouflage goodness. I’m not sure what sort of market there is for that vomit of colors, but there it is anyway.
You can expect the Defender cases to cost you about $50, add $10 for the RealTree defender, and the Commuter cases will be $15 cheaper. It’s a bit pricey, but once you slap an Otterbox onto your device it virtually wipes out any fears you have of your phone breaking due to a fall. Head to Otterbox to throw your email address into the hat so you can be sure you’re notified once these cases drop.
