Sonim Technologies today announced the XP1300 Core rugged mobile phone. The XP1300 has an ingress protection (IP) rating of 68, meaning it can withstand submersion in 2 feet of water for 30 minutes. It also meets MIL-810G certification for salt, fog, humidity, transport shock, and thermal shock. Other key features include noise cancellation, waterproof connectors and a Gorilla Glass display. The XP1300 also has a loudspeaker, large keypad for use with gloves, and a 2-inch display. The XP1300 Core also boasts 18 hours of talk time, media player, and will be available unlocked starting in November for $400.
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.
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.
