XDA Molded Case for HTC One Available Now
XDA encourages collaboration between developers and within the community, so it’s only fair that we seek out opportunities to do so ourselves. Working with the fine folks at Cruzerlite is just such an example. We’ve done some great shirts and a good assortment of cases for the top devices out there, and the response from the community has been spectacular.
Now, we are happy to announce a new case to add to the collection: the HTC One XDA Molded Case. The cases are molded into high-quality TPU to provide the most protection while remaining amazingly thin. The sleek, lightweight design of the case fully wraps around the HTC One, while at the same time raising the front of the phone to protect the screen when face down. These affordable cases are flexible, easy to apply, and easy to remove. They come in several different colors, allowing you to choose the case that fits you as well as it fits the phone. Or, for the hipsters out there, you can have a case for each social situation you might find yourself in.
To really launch this new case, Cruzerlite is giving away ten (10) $14 gift cards and will throw in free shipping. All you have to do is follow @xdadevelopers and @cruzerlite, and then tweet what your first smartphone was with the hashtag #xdacruzerlite. So something like this:
@xdadevelopers @cruzerlite my first smartphone was the Palm OS Samsung i500. #xdacruzerlite
Ten winners will be chosen by Cruzerlite on Friday. So get out there and show your support for the largest mobile development community in the world!
