18 hours talk time??

That is impressive. However, which carrier will be supporting this phone? There was no mention.
AFAIK, Sonim phones are only sold unlocked (my local Best Buy carries them) and are used on networks requiring a SIM card. Check the videos on their website to see the abuse they put them through. Definitely worth the cost.

Unlocked means no specified carrier.
Except for construction workers, this phone would not go very far in the states.

Realy extreme but what about contract?

It definitely nice and almost unbreakable but i'm more about what kind of provider will have this baby in tariff and even more, what kind of tariff. I've done some searching and found a nice site with tariff plans from international providers - http://simtariff.com/. You can easily compare one plan to another and choose something of your choice. Maybe this handset will be also available.

Was Sonim the company that made some sort of super phones for AT&T a while back? What was the feedback like as far as overall quality and usability of the phones?
