Caterpillar CAT B10 is a tough Android smartphone with IP67 certification

Caterpillar CAT B10 is a tough Android smartphone with IP67 certification
Smartphones, shmartphones – most of them would suffer serious damage after only one drop on the pavement, right? Well, the Caterpillar CAT B10 wouldn't. In fact, it is tough enough to handle various kinds of abuse. It is a rugged Android smartphone that boasts IP67 certification, meaning that it is resistant to dirt and dust. Furthermore, it can survive after being submerged in water at 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. 

However, as the case is with rugged smartphones, the Caterpillar CAT B10 doesn't shine with anything in terms of specs. It has a 3.2-inch touchscreen display, protected by strengthened glass, of course, and a single-core 800MHz processor. The camera on its back is of 5 megapixels, and you also get a front-facing shooter for video chats. The smartphone runs Android 2.3.5 Gingerbread, but an update to Android 4.0 ICS is promised for later on.

The Caterpillar CAT B10 is expected to be made available in May for a price of about $500 off-contract. Anyone thinking of checking it out when it launches?
