The Rugby - Rugged Tech
In case you're off to a battlezone -- or a rugby match -- this is the phone for you. The Samsung clamshell phone features a rugged design, which has been certified with military standard MIL-STD-810F and is said to be able to withstand dust, shock, vibration, rain, humidity, solar radiation (!) , altitude, and extreme temperature. Yikes!
Sporting a 2-inch internal display with 65K colors and 128 x 160 pixels; 1.3-megapixel camera, 3G capability, Quad-band GSM, Bluetooth, 128MB of memory, microSD MicroSD memory card slot and a-GPS function it is available in the construction colors pictured above. (Yeah, it's also available in grey on black, but it doesn't look nearly as hard-core.)
$129.99 with a two-year contract and after a mail-in rebate of $50 at AT&T.
Haz-mat suit extra.
