Scott Weiner is a self-described “Android nut” who has always upgraded to the latest and greatest smartphone. When he traded in his previous phone for the new Samsung Galaxy Nexus in late 2011, he loved everything about it. Except for one aspect.
“The thing is as slippery as if it’s got grease on it,” says the web entrepreneur and former employment lawyer from Fort Lauderdale, Fla. “I think I dropped it three times in the first week. So I ordered a bunch of cases to see if one would solve the problem, and I was pretty dissatisfied. I thought, Why don’t I start selling cases?”
In April, Weiner did just that, launching DBA Cases, a company that sells and now designs premium Android smartphone cases constructed from high-quality materials such as an impact-resistant polycarbonate, a polymer that is also used in bullet-resistant glass and fighter jets. (Weiner says he plans to manufacture cases for the iPhone 5 this year.)Featured Posts, Updates and tagged featured. Bookmark the permalink.
