yes but Rock does not have CE so cannot be sold in Europe. You are right though out of the same factory. The EU version is sold by Durrocomm in the UK and called the Utano barrier. Same phone but cheaper and with dual sim.

Tough phone. I like the Toughphone Sitemaster2, but the specs didn't impress me. A 2mp camera is already obsolete. A 5 to 8mp will be better with autofocus/torch. The 8Mb slot is already too low with the current phones today.

I'll just wait for a better phone JCB will produce.

I've got the JCB ProSmart in my hand right now, it definitely has GPS! Brilliant phone - didn't think I could have a decent smart phone that I could take to work with my without worrying about dropping it/getting it wet. Thank You JCB, you've answered my prayers. Android FTW!!!

this phone is for those who work in cave or in constructions or in an oil company. I know the cost of this phone, I ask can a poor worker can buy this phone?
