Cat B15 rugged Android phone

It'll be interesting to see if this has any significant uptake with AT&T's customer base. Given that AT&T is really hanging it's entire PTT marketing push on the capabilities of its new "EPTT" (enhanced PTT) service that can only run on its LTE network, it would seem to be a significant limiting factor that the B15 can't do LTE (and by extension can't do EPTT).

Pity, a Cat-branded phone of any type would have been a perfect addition to the Nextel line back in its heyday. Nextel made a good living with the "DeWalt style" black & yellow ruggedized "its-just-another-tool" type of phones & the marketing thereof, but also having a Cat-themed phone would have been a logical extension of Nextel's persona.
