i was looking forward to this, but with only 512MB RAM i'll likely just wait for a new iPhone.

You could just put an Otterbox on it, or any other popular smartphone for that matter. Those things take quite a beating.

and spend $150 more than you would have to if you just got a ruggedized smartphone that was priced $100 cheaper. Assuming they would get the 4s.

haikallp, has a good point. iPhones are NOT rugged whatsoever; they're among the most fragile handsets I've had to deal with.

Er.. what? If this phone is around 100 bucks, so.. you really believe you'll get an iPhone and a good rugged case for 50? Please tell me where.

Also, that looks like it is essentially a Galaxy Xcover, in which case the rugged case should really be top-notch, Xcover is specced at IP67 and can really take a hit and fall.
