Ruggedized Samsung B2100 leaks, we can't wait to torture it - read the full textWith the MWC in Barcelona just around the corner we got a glimpse of another phone that will probably be introduced there. The Samsung B2100 looks like a trimmed-down sturdier version of the B2700, which we reviewed/stress-tested a while ago. The Samsung B2100 looks very similar to the Samsung...

Served me well for my outdoor extreme lifestyle, but i got angry 1 day and threw it against the wall and the thing shattered into a thousand pieces. definitely NOT indestructable...

Just got this phone, and it's the best rugged tough phone I've ever had. I've had Nokias 5410 & 5500 sport, and even JCB phone. And this one is by far the best. Fastest menu system I've ever used on a phone. Some may see it as basic features, but there's more than enough there, just because people will compare this to smartphones, which you shouldn't. It's a tough phone, and it does tough very very well! 10/10 I'd give this (and that doesn't happen often with a phone for me!

this also bears the IP57 certification test.which also sonim xp3 means that they are equal in toughness.but the price of xp3 is very high and their is no other features in sonim xp3 without ruggedness.while it have also good specification as 1.3 mp camera with auto radio and card slot also.and above the all low price tag.

I Think some of these posters need to get a life. I will be selling hunderds of these. people who work on building sites want a phone they can drop and use. not something with a 45 megapixel camrea that stops working when it gets a bit chilly.
