Seidio Launches CONVERT for EMS Personnel

CONVERT: a Rugged Yet Versatile Smartphone Case for EMS Personnel
CONVERT provides rugged protection when you need it, sleek protection when you don’t; ideal for police officers, paramedics, coast guard, and other emergency response personnel
Houston, TX, April 20, 2011Seidio, a leading manufacturer of mobile device accessories, today introduced Seidio CONVERT, a smartphone case featuring a unique 2-in-1 case design ideal for emergency response personnel. Users such as police officers and paramedics especially appreciate the ability to switch between rugged and sleek device protection, to suit any environment. The case, available immediately at $49.95 MSRP, is ideal for professionals who at times need the highest level of device protection, but who also desire the flexibility to convert to a slim-fitting case when only minimal protection is required. Seidio CONVERT gives users the versatility to choose the right level of protection for any situation without needing to buy multiple cases.
“Mobile devices are now an accepted and expected part of daily life. They give us access to everything we need from wherever we are, and have merged the personal and professional phone into one,” said David Chang, Seidio CEO and Founder. “Because we take our smartphones wherever we go, Seidio made the CONVERT case to deliver true versatility. Now this one case lets you go rugged when you need to, and sleek when you don’t, giving you the right protection for any situation.”
Seidio CONVERT provides the following features and benefits:
  • Two cases in one, which means you gain the versatility to switch from rugged to sleek in any situation or environment.
  • No longer need two phones, one for work and another for personal use because you fear breaking your phone in certain situations. Seidio CONVERT offers protection for any situation.
  • Interlocking layers provide optimal shock and impact protection, especially at the most vulnerable spots on the device, with less bulk.
  • Scratch resistant screen protector that doesn’t hinder touch sensitivity, allowing complete access to all smartphone features and apps.
  • Passed the Mil Spec Drop Test (MIL-STD-810G Transit Drop) – which is a benchmark for military durability.
  • Product includes:
  • Multi-layer case that enables conversion between sleek and rugged protection
  • Patented, locking holster
  • Screen protector
Seidio CONVERT is ideal for EMS personnel such as police officers, paramedics and the coast guard, because it gives them the confidence to use their smartphone in tough work environments, and the flexibility to convert to a slimmer level of protection when they’re off duty.
  • Emergency response personnel need quick access to their device in conditions that can be hazardous to smartphones.   With Seidio CONVERT controls and ports are covered for protection from hazards such as blood, moisture, dirt, and impact while remaining fully functional, even when in the holster.
  • When you get the case dirty, the outer protective layers can be removed and easily cleaned, while the smartphone remains protected by the sleek inner case and ready-to-use.
  • Its patented holster provides the quick access EMS personnel need in emergency situations, while locking the device in place with the screen facing inward for added protection and swiveling for convenience.
“When I’m away from the hospital, in an emergency situation, my mode of communication is my mobile phone. I’ve lost, dropped, or broken my phone more than I care to think about,” said Chris Cook, paramedic.
“To have the extra protection and confidence that my phone will stand up to the same situations I’m dealing with is exactly what I need.”
Seidio CONVERT is available immediately at Seidio Online: www.seidioonline, at Amazon: and sold under the PT Defense Brand at Best Buy. The multi-layer case can be purchased for the manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $49.95.
