ATLANTA – September 15, 2010 – case-mate®, the leading manufacturer of innovative accessories that protect, adorn and enhance mobile technologies, and Pong®, the global leader in technologies that protect users of wireless devices from the potentially harmful effects of radiation exposure, today announced a new partnership to manufacture and market their innovative “Bounce” suite of smartphone cases.
The Bounce cases employ Pong’s patented technology that redirects radiation away from consumers’ heads. The devices are proven in laboratories certified by the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) to redirect away from the user at least 60% of “normal” cell phone radiation and 85% of “hot spot” radiation while maintaining full signal strength.
“case-mate is committed to creating a robust line-up – providing consumers a wide range of choices when it comes to how they protect their phones,” said Erik Attkisson, Chief Marketing Officer of case-mate. “With Bounce, we’re proud to offer conscientious consumers another level of protection and prevention, using the best solution in the market today with Pong technology.”
“We believe in our technology and the value it offers to consumers who care about their—and their families’ and friends’—environmental health, and we are thankful to all of our current Pong customers worldwide who embraced our first cases last year,” said Kevin Passarello, President of Pong. “In looking for a partner, we pursued case-mate because of its best-in-class design and manufacturing prowess and unparalleled distribution network that will help bring Pong technology to even more mobile phone users in 2011.”
