Most of his phones have met their demise falling off a rooftop to the foundation below. I may look into purchasing one of these for him.

I dont think that a construction junkie is really intrested in deals and contract, just give the bloke something thats unbreakable and he's happy, throw in a flashlight and radio and it gets even better.....

In Europe you can order it already. I received mine after 3 days. In comparison to the SONIM XP2.10, which is also 3G-equipped, it´s a great deal. Better performance, better screen.

They should have UMTS 850/900/1700/1900/2100 to make it a better deal.

Or at least drop the not so frequently used 1700 band for 850.
