Incipio® announces title sponsorship of upcoming 2010 Gumball 3000 Rally
New Incipio x Gumball 3000 iPhone and BlackBerry cases join the grid
IRVINE, CA – April 14, 2010 – Incipio, leading manufacturer of designer accessories for some of the wireless industry’s best-known brands and devices, launches a limited edition selection of Gumball 3000 cases for six smart phone devices; the iPhone 3G/3GS, BlackBerry Curve 8300 and 8520, Storm 9550, Bold 9700 and Tour 9630. As a title sponsor of the Gumball 3000 Rally, an annual 3,000 mile international road rally, Incipio introduces a series of co-branded Incipio x Gumball 3000 cases to the range; the dermaSHOT®, silicone case and the ultra light feather®, polycarbonate case. All cases are available at www.gumball3000.com/store or www.myincipio.com/gumball with prices starting from $24.99.
The Incipio dermaSHOT® case is a tight fitting, high density silicone case which provides ultimate protection for an iPhone, iPod or BlackBerry. An anti-static coating ensures the case grips the phone rather than clothing. The Incipio feather® is an ultra light hard shell case made from a durable and rigid polycarbonate material. Measuring less than 1mm thick it offers superior form-fitting durable protection without adding bulk to a smart phone. Both cases are available in black with either the Gumball 3000 logo or Motorprint design.
The 2010 Gumball 3000 will see drivers from around the world embark on the ultimate road trip, from London to New York, in mostly exotic and powerful sports cars. As a title sponsor, Incipio will also be presenting over 120 Gumball 3000 participants with an Incipio x Gumball 3000 survival kit, which includes essential bits of gear from limited edition phone cases to chargers, as they depart on the first leg of the journey from Pall Mall on the 1st of May. Those who complete the rally will also receive a limited edition Gumball 3000 Hero case at the finish line in New York.
Maximillion Cooper, founder and CEO of the Gumball 3000 Group, comments: “I’m hyped to have Incipio as an official sponsor of the 2010 Gumball 3000 Rally – alongside an already illustrious list of partners including Puma, Monster Energy Drink, Betsafe, and Nixon watches.
