Motorola Announces the Marine Corp Quality Quantico
Today Motorola debuted a new mil-spec, ruggedized phone called the Quantico. The Quantico (named after the USMC base) is a tri-band clamshell CDMA phone, supporting 800/1700/1900MHz EVDO. It has a rubber-coated exterior with textured patterns to make it easier to grip. The Quantico can withstand a 30-minute dunk in up to three feet of water. It can also withstand extreme pressure, temperature, dust, shock, vibration and blowing rain. Other features include GPS, Bluetooth 2.0, a 2.5mm headset jack, high performance speakerphone and a 1.3 megapixel camera. U.S. Cellular has started selling the Quantico for $99 after rebates with new agreement, or $190 via its pre-paid plans.
30 minute dunk into 3 feet of water. Where do they come up with that??? Why do they not just say water resistant???? DUH!
Because a 30 minute dunk is water proof, not resistant. Resistant is that...
if someone throws it into the deep end of the pool and complains it doesnt work after 29 minutes theyre covered.
"compatible w/networks operated by ... MetroPCS & Cricket" ??
Also, it's already be stated the US Cellular is offering this device.
Just wondering. Was there a reason to call out Metro & Cricket?
Rich, you need to correct this
US Cellular is selling this as of today.
