"We see a huge demand for truly rugged smartphones among field professionals and outdoor enthusiasts who want to be constantly connected. We're excited to see the great response this product receives from the market."

It runs on a powerful 1 GHz dual-core processor and has 1 GB of RAM. It features Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, a compass, a professional u-blox GPS, and a 5-megapixel camera.
