Stand back, kids, and hide away those fancy-pants smartphones of yours. The Samsung Rugby III has just been announced, offering military-grade resilience to the elements paired with Enhanced PTT service from AT&T. The fifth-gen Rugby series phone can survive all kinds of torture, including drops and shock, all the while being highly resistant to water and dust damage...

About time. The Rugby2 has been long-in-the-tooth for the last 2 years.

Military is moving to smartphones (Android seems to have more interest from U.S. military community). I suspect the new Rugby will see more use in construction job sites.

$99.99 for any on contract flip phone is ridiculous.

Meh. Job sites with harsh environments are natural users for the Rugby. Construction and warehouses immediately come to mind. There is no way a smartphone will survive one week in those places. $99 is probably the number that will get those customers to upgrade.

Don't forget it is a MILITARY Standard phone..., which means Extremely high durability, that means 100x stronger than standard flip phones.
