Pharos 565 rugged Windows Mobile smartphone withstands drops

Pharos 565 rugged Windows Mobile smartphone withstands drops
Rugged oriented phones don't always have to look like they're coming straight out from the entry-level category. Instead, Pharos combines the depth of features found in the common smartphone with a tough casing that's sure to withstand some of the extreme punishment one can dish out on any handset. The Pharos 565 PDA was recently announced by the company and is considered the first ruggedized smartphone running with Windows Mobile 6.5 – it also meets the IP54 standard so it can survive drops from four to five feet in height. It doesn't even skimp out on any of the features found on other Window Mobile smartphones – it features a 3.5” touchscreen, full QWERTY keyboard, 624 MHz Marvell PXA310 processor, 512 MB of ROM, 256 MB of RAM, Wi-Fi, and GPS. If you're serious about picking up this handset, you can expect to dish out $529.95 for this smartphone.
