The first sign of spring – an iPad 3 camp out?

Read Article


iPhone 4S camp out

It has unofficially become an annual sign of spring’s impending arrival. March 12, 2010, Apple began taking pre-orders for the iPad. March 11, 2011 marked the first day you could buy an iPad 2. In 2012, Apple is once again talking iPad, this time on March 7. In the tech world, there’s no better way to kick off warmer days and shorter nights.

For the second time in six months, OtterBox will be painting the streets yellow on launch day. As soon as we know when the next-generation iPad will be available, we’ll gather up our camp out crews and hit the streets of New York City and Palo Alto, Calif. to join in the ever-growing excitement over Apple’s latest tablet.

Whether you’ll be in the area or joining us in line, be sure to stop by and say hello. We’ll have some great Otter swag in our Otter Protection Survival Kits (O.P.S.K) which will include an OtterBox-branded fleece beanie, poncho and OtterBalm, yellow beach ball and glowstick and a granola snack encased in an indestructible OtterBox drybox. When the iPhone 4S was released, store campouts were a huge hit. Help us make this one even bigger than the last.

Welcome back, spring and welcome the next iPad.

I'm a PR guy, so I work to spread the good word about OtterBox to audiences far and wide. I migrated to Colorado after growing up along Wisconsin's sunny Lake Michigan shores and I'm a sports nut (I dabbled in broadcasting basketball and football). Baseball is No. 1 (go Brewers!), though. I spend summers hiking, backpack through the fall, ski in the winter and truly believe every spring that the Brewers will make the playoffs
