HOUSTON -- May 20, 2013

Seidio, a leading manufacturer of professional mobile accessories, unveils the
OBEX for Samsung Galaxy S4. It’s a custom-made waterproof and drop-proof case
for the S4, and the ultimate defense against the elements. OBEX (Latin for
“Barrier”) earned its name after a series of rigorous tests proving that
water, dirt, dust and drops are no match for this protective case. You can
catch the first glimpse of the OBEX for Galaxy S4 at Showstoppers at CTIA 2013
in Las Vegas this Monday, May 20^th.

“Our consumers live adventurously, and they need a case that can handle the
toughest environments and climates. We [Seidio] strive to stay on the
forefront of the waterproof accessory market,” says David Chang, CEO of
Seidio. “Our OBEX line has received rave reviews and is a nominee for an
American Business Award so we wanted to expand this case for the S4. This
version, however, has been revamped and redesigned to be even slimmer, easier
to install and remove, and maintains the great sound quality of the device’s
speakers and microphone.”

The OBEX is a must-have item for the adventurers, outdoorsmen, travelers, and
vacationers. Seidio’s world-class engineering team put the case through dozens
of torture tests to guarantee that no water can break through OBEX design. It
exceeds the IP68 rating which means that it’s been submerged underwater for 30
minutes without causing any damage to the device.

One of the biggest issues consumers face when purchasing a rugged, extreme
protection accessory is interference with important ports, touch screen
sensitivity, sound quality and more. The OBEX preserves the functionality of
the Galaxy S4 due to its high-quality materials and top-notch design.
Waterproof membranes will keep dirt and water out while ensuring the speaker
and microphone quality remains the same. Additionally, a built-in screen
protector preserves touch screen sensitivity, and anti-reflection glass
protects the camera lens and photo quality.

We dare you to drop your device while guarded with the OBEX. Really. The
Polycarbonate and Thermoplastic Polyurethane impact-proof case is
military-tested under the MIL-STD-810F test which evaluates the case from
6-foot drops at multiple angles. If it can survive this test, it can
definitely survive your everyday bump, fumbles and drops.

The OBEX for Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available in Q3 for $79.95 ($89.95
Combo) at

The OBEX is also available for the Apple iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S3.

Seidio will be at Showstoppers at Monday, May 20, 2013. The company will also
showcase their line of accessories at CTIA 2013 (Booth #470).
