Handheld Nautiz X1 claims to be the toughest smartphone in the world

Handheld Nautiz X1 claims to be the toughest smartphone in the world
While some smartphones are made to impress with style and performance, others stand out with their durability and resistance to the elements. As you can probably tell, the Nautiz X1, which the Swedish company Handheld announced, belongs to the latter category. In fact, its maker claims that the X1 is the toughest smartphone in the world as it is waterproof, dust-proof, and shock-resistant. The smartphone has been given IP67 certification and complies with the 810G military standard, meaning that it can withstand a lot more abuse than an ordinary smartphone would ever be subjected to. Quite impressive indeed.

In terms of hardware, the Handheld Nautiz X1 doesn't offer anything we haven't seen already, but it is still miles ahead of what other rugged smartphones are equipped with. Inside it runs a dual-core processor clocked at 1GHz with 512MB of RAM, while its 4-inch WVGA screen retains its readability even in broad daylight. One can take photos and videos with its 5-megapixel camera and store the footage on its 2GB built-in memory, or on a microSD card. All of that is contained within a 15 millimeter body weighing 180 grams.

Of course, all standard connectivity features are supported, including Wi-Fi, 3G, Bluetooth, and GPS. Android 4.0 comes out of the box, but if needed, Windows Embedded Handheld 6.5 can be pre-installed instead. The standard battery has a capacity of 1530mAh, but an extended, 2920mAh cell is also available.  

In case you want a Handheld Nautiz X1, you can pre-order one today. However, prepare to wait until January 2013 as that is when the smartphone is scheduled to launch for roughly $900.

I'd buy an Xperia Acro S and sacrifice the shock proof-ness instead of paying $900 for this un-scary monster.

Yep. Buy a shock-resistant otterbox and the total cost would still be lower than $900.
