The still unannounced rugged Nokia 3720 was shown off on several official teaser videos, where some guys do all they can to break it. They play golf and kick it rugby style, but the robust 3720 got away unscratched.
We have already informed you that Nokia are working on another rugged handset after the pretty popular 5500 Sport back in 2006. The heavy duty phone should be able to survive plenty of disasters, that would turn out fatal for its siblings.
Unluckily for the smartphone fans the Nokia 3720 will run on the S40 platform. It is IP54 certified, meaning it's dust and splash resistant.
The new Nokia will be a clear shot at the two Samsung ruggedized handsets - the 3G enabled Samsung B2700 and the cheaper Samsung B2100 Xplorer. Given the advantage those two have on hitting the shelves the Nokia certainly won't have an easy task.
After the first unofficial leak it now came time for Nokia themselves to release a little teaser about the handset. Several cool videos popped up on the Nokia Conversations website showing how Nokia 3720 handles extensive torture. In the first one the little Finn takes the role of a rugby ball but gets away pretty easily.
Next comes golf ball test, where the Nokia 3720 is hit a good 10-15 meters away with a steel club, landing on the wet grass. Once again the phone passes the test with flying colors.
And here go the final three videos, showing how the 3720 deals with a swimming pool, a pint of beer and a very big ladder.
We are now waiting for the official announcement of the Nokia 3720 which should reveal its full specs list. Those little teasers suggest that it cannot be too far away now.
