Ballistic Hard Core Case Keeps Your iPhone 4 Safe And Sound

Cases rarely grace these pages, but we're all about rugged computing. If a company enables a mobile machine to become even more mobile by letting it operate safely in less-than-safe places, that's a big win in our mind. Loads of rugged tablets have made their way out over the years, and Panasonic's ToughBook line has become famous for being able to work in some pretty insane conditions.


The Ballistic HD (Hard Core) case is a new one for Apple's iPhone 4, which is known for cracking easily when dropped from just a few feet up (with no case, of course). This new shell is tested to meet MIL-STD 810G specifications, and it's the only iPhone 4 case to do so. That's saying a lot given just how long the phone has been out, but the case is no less impressive. There's a shock absorption ring around the edges, an interchangeable outer gel skin layer, front facing inward holster and built-in screen protector. It also incorporates connector seals, water resistant meshes and tough lenses to ensure that moisture, dust/dirt and other corrosive materials do not enter into the connector, speaker and microphone ports.

Shock (Drop test), Vibration, Extreme Temperatures, Humidity, and Dust were all tested during certification, and at $49.99, it's actually cheaper than some other cases. Not bad if you're planning to push your iPhone to the limit, we suppose!
