New Sonim XP3 for the ‘rugged consumer’

Posted by Admin on November 24, 2008

People that need a phone that can withstand some of the toughest conditions – rescue workers, builders, anyone with kids – will soon be able to get their hands on the new Sonim XP3, designed specifically for the ‘rugged consumer’.

There are some pretty impressive details about what the phone can handle. It can work at -20C or at +60C without breaking down, or be fully submersed for 30 minutes within one meter of water. While the keyboard buttons are tested to work even after 500,000 pushes. It has also been designed against salt, fog humidity, transport and thermal shock.

Sonim also offers a no questions asked replacement if you do break one:

“It doesn’t matter how you break it, or whether you get it wet during the course of your work … Sonim Technologies will provide you with a replacement, no questions asked.”

Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim Technologies said about the new device: “Our customers needs have been largely forgotten by the mobile industry … The Sonim XP3 is our reminder to our customers that no matter how rugged and tough their environment, we can provide the phone that will withstand the stress.”
