iPhoneFreak: SharkEye iPhone Case Review and Video
Is it really possible to use a rugged iPhone 4 case everyday? For me, the downside of cases which offer almost complete protection for your phone is the additional size and bulk - I just don't want to carry them around. I always knew there would be a sweet spot, where the phone is kept safe without sacrificing its portability, and I think the SharkEye may have found it. Read more...
Review: Battle Of The Rugged iPhone 4 Cases! Ballistic HC vs. SharkEye
There's no denying the iPhone 4 is a beautiful device, but like so many beautiful things, it's also fragile. Almost immediately after being released, pictures began to appear showing a shattered glass rear panel or worse, a shattered screen; it soon became clear the iPhone 4 had to be treated carefully.

SharkEye Rugged iPhone 4 Case Release

Austin-Based Cypress Industries Spin-Off SharkEye Manufactures Rugged Cases for Growing Number of Smartphones

SharkEye iPhone® 4 Case Outperforms Competitors in Laboratory Damage Tests; Now Available for Retail Purchase

May 9, 2011. AUSTIN, TX. - SharkEye Cases, a spin-off of Austin-based Cypress Industries, a leading international manufacturing and services company, today announced the addition of the SharkEye iPhone® 4 case to its expanding line of rugged smartphone cases. SharkEye cases are the most rugged cases in the touchscreen-smartphone market - consistently outperforming competitors in independent laboratory tests of smartphone cases' ability to protect devices from screen damage.

With replacement iPhones costing upwards of $600, SharkEye understands iPhones are an investment for on-the-go communicators who can't live without their smartphone - for even a day. SharkEye's iPhone 4 case joins SharkEye's iPhone 3/3Gs case to protect the iPhone's delicate glass screen from impact regardless of how it might be dropped. The case's patented design features a light, highly-durable outer shell combined with a soft inner lining that prevents shock from reaching the touchscreen. SharkEye cases are the only iPhone case with a retractable screen protector (patent-pending) to prevent screen cracks resulting from head-on impact.

"People who rely on their smartphones as a command center for their lives can't afford to be without their devices," said Matt Conkey, SharkEye President. "We continue to put our patented design through rigorous testing to ensure that every SharkEye case provides ultimate protection from drops, slips, pressure and impact."

SharkEye cases are currently available at SharkEye.com and through an expanding number of distributors and retail outlets nationwide.

SharkEye is funded by the Dallas-based private equity firm, Freeman Group and initiated funding in order to provide capital for rapid growth. SharkEye's facility is in northeast Austin in the Walnut Creek Business Park and has expansion plans to grow its core team in the next few months.

SharkEye cases are designed with hard-working people in mind - for people whose touchscreen phones are more than just a phone and rather a connection to their life, work and can't slow down when their device breaks.
