Poptel's industry-tailored line of rugged Androids stars in an Amazon sales event
Advertorial by Poptel: the opinions expressed in this story may not reflect the positions of PhoneArena! 

The maker of rugged Android handsets and other intriguing telephony paraphernalia Poptel is entering into a mid-year Amazon sales event that will see the price for some of its most popular products undergo the promotional treatment until June 27. 

On the market since 2009, Poptel's business has branched out into three separate directions. The industry-tailored communication solutions are similar to what Motorola offers for radio communication in mission-critical fields. There is also an IoT push into intelligent gadgets like robotic cleaners, smart meters or connected coffee machines, harnessing the power of cloud computing and AI.

Finally, a consumer-facing brand whose Android specialization in particular is in rugged handsets and videophones. These have proven themselves in battle among law enforcement officers, doctors, firefighters and first responders who need durable equipment and customized abilities in the hospital or the field.

Needless to say, these three pillars merge in the end product, as the enduring Poptel P9000 Max phone can been customized for different needs if you contact the sales team with your requirements. The industry-specific model name for bulk orders is dubbed RS801, and Poptel added explosion-proof certification for the oil&gas industry, for instance, push-to-talk button for police and healthcare workers, or coupled the walkie-talkie abilities with RFID tag NFC readers for inventory management.

The P9000 Max comes with the whopping 9000 mAh battery pack, pack, as you can already guess, and with global LTE bands modem version at that. Coupled with a 5.5" FHD display, and frugal octa-core chipset, the energy-dense unit will last you the proverbial weekend on a charge, and then some, unless you are intent on playing looking for PokeStops in the wilderness.

The Poptel P60, on the other hand, sports the all-important MIL-SPEC 810G and IP68 certifications that seal its drop-tested and water-tight fate for the initiated. For the rugged phone novice users, Poptel explains that it has built the P60 around a sturdy metal frame with plastic corner edges and suspending bumpers that keep the internals safer on impact, while a protective texture at the rear adds extra fall insurance.

When it comes to the actual specs, the 5.7" 1080p display coupled with a giant 5000 mAh battery and fast charging, promise close to two days of battery life which is important for a weekend camping warrior. Poptel has also outfitted the phone with more LTE bands than usual, to the tune of 31 global frequencies, so that it has more chances to work on your carrier network with its maximum download speeds. The customized interface includes extra security and privacy features and the phone has push-to-talk option without unlocking the display.

It's not often that a videophone comes along, let alone one with a huge, Android-driven display, but the ever-enterprising Poptel has just that to offer with the V9. Equipped with a SIM card slot, the Poptel V9 nevertheless lets you take calls the old-fashioned way, like on home phones of yesteryear by simply picking up the receiver. Needless to say, it is rechargeable, so you can roam with it freely around the house and even outside in the yard or down the street.

The sweet 8" display is what makes it the largest Android-laden videophone in an admittedly narrow category, and you can control the lighting, thermostat, AC unit, smart locks, or any other home automation gizmo you have equipped your house with from the comfort of your own V9 display. 

Here, Poptel managed to also tailor it for the specific requirements of buyers in different industries. Financial advisers in bank branches use the V9 as a customer display, hotels and restaurants use the receiver as a walkie-talkie, and telemedicine providers use it for remote diagnosis and treatment supervision.

The Amazon sale event includes stalwarts like the lasting Poptel P9000 Max, and the tough P60, as well as the V9 videophone and the budget P10 option.
