It can withstand shock and dust resistance, vibration, salt fog, humidity, solar radiation, altitude and low and high temperatures. The Convoy features a high-quality stereo speaker, Bluetooth 2.1, GPS, a 2 megapixel camera and extended battery life. The Convoy will be available November 15 for $50 after rebates with new agreement.

The speakers!

They look like boomers! Anyone know if they are as good as the LG8300 speakers?

I'm starting to think...

...everything should be built to mil-spec. Wouldn't have to worry about dropping our phones ever again.
Good point, or at least waterproof. I heard a growing number of "normal" phones in Japan are waterproof.
