The name “Stevie” is taken from the name Stephen, derived from Greek term for “crowned.” Past American Business Award winners have include Apple, Oracle, Hilton Hotels, and AT&T.

  • THIS is the protective case I have been waiting for. I have used Oxxxxxox products which are very good. My issue with them is the bulk they added to my iPnone5 as well as cost and slick plastic outer shells.
    I took a chance on the Newertech KX case and it is perfect for me. Adds minimal bulk but best of all, it is not slippery plastic. The material is firm yet less slipery than the standard polycarbonate shells. Excellent protection, feels good to the hand with minimal bulk addition especially considering the protection offered.

    Thanks OWC for carrying and recommending this case.
