Long-standing purveyor of rugged mobile device protection technology Otterbox has announced a new series of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S cases to join its existing Defender, Reflex, Impact and Commuter protective shells. The Otterbox Armor Series iPhone case promises to be its toughest to date and the company confidently state that your iPhone will be protected from drops, dust, crushing and even water. Given the reputation for robustness that Otterbox has achieved thus far, we're inclined to take these claims seriously.

While the timing of bringing out a major line of iPhone 4 and iPhone 4S case mere months away from the next iPhone's probable release may seem slightly puzzling, these two cases are likely just the beginning of the Armor Series and we can safely assume that Otterbox will update its line to include Apple's next iPhone too, when the time comes.

The finer details of the Armor Series are still somewhat sketchy at present, but to tide us over until price and release date are announced, here’s a short teaser video:

I have the Otterbox Defender for my HTC Desire. Have just ordered the Samsung Galaxy S3 and want this new Armour case for the S3. Hopefully OtterBox extend the new style to other phones quickly.

Interesting. I currently use the Lifeproof case for my 4s which I purchased after I cracked the Otter Box Defender case. The guy at Sprint acted shocked that I cracked the Otter Box. I asked him if there was anything better and he told me that the Lifeproof case was new, but that it was supposed to be, as it's name suggests, life proof from water, sand, falls, etc.
I have used my 4s underwater with the case and never had an issue. Works great for waterfall hikes, jet skiing and snorkeling when you don't want to lug a big camera around.
I've had it for 3 months and it's taken dozens of hard falls, been fully stepped on and of course...underwater. ;)
