Bullitt's Cat S50c Certified for Verizon, On Sale Today
Bullitt today announced the Cat S50c, a new rugged smartphone that's compatible with Verizon's network in the U.S. The S50c has been certified by Verizon for its LTE 4G network, but is being sold online. The S50c has earned a mil-spec 810g rating for protection against drops and abuse, and an IP67 rating for protection against liquid and dust. It can sit in 3.3 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. The 4.7-inch HD Gorilla Glass display supports wet finger and glove tracking, so it can be used in the rain or snow. The phone has a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor with 1 GB of RAM and 8 GB of storage. It supports memory cards up to 64 GB. Cat says the 2,630mAh battery provides a full day of use. It can support PTT services if enabled through Verizon. The phone is being sold by Cat, Amazon.com, Home Depot, Ingram Micro, and authorized Verizon resellers. The Cat S50c costs $399.99.
CAT announced the S50 this week, a bigger, bolder ruggedized smartphone. It has a larger display, faster processor, and higher toughness rating than last year's B15.
