I've never heard about IP68 rating before.
Thumbs-up Sonim! Definitely at the Top of the league for rugged phones.

Instead of noting the coordinates, resurfacing, and getting to a radio - you can send a SMS with the coordinates and message straight to your base station, and continue on. If it does work, the marine professions will benefit greatly.

This is for outdoor use, hiking, climbing, rafting, rain, snow, battlefield etc, not for desk jockeys. :-) Motorola Defy is almost the same as far as resistence is concerned (and it's an Android with better specs), however the Sonim looks cooler. :-)
