Cat B15Q, the world's toughest Android KitKat smartphone, gets priced in Europe
Amazon Germany is currently taking pre-orders for the Cat B15Q, asking €399 for an unlocked unit. That’s about $544, though we assume that the handset won’t cost that much when it reaches the US. The older variant of the B15Q, the Cat B15, is currently available Stateside (via Amazon, and likely other retailers, too) for $339, and we’re thinking that the new model will probably not be sold for more than $500.
The B15Q works at temperatures ranging from -13°F (-25°C) to 131°F (55 °C), and can survive drops from up to 5.9 feet (1.8 meters). The smartphone is also dust- and water-resistant. Its specs aren’t that impressive, though, including a 4-inch WVGA display with wet finger tracking, 5MP rear camera, VGA front-facing camera, quad-core 1.3GHz MediaTek processor, 1GB of RAM, 4GB of internal memory, and microSD card support.

Why the crappy MediaTek processor? They should have used the Snapdragon 200 or 400 instead...

Are you nuts?!?!? Why do you want these wimps when you can have the Snapdragon 805 (AKA the big boss)?

Don't underestimate the powers of a clumsy woman.
