Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro hands-on
Back in March of this year, we had the chance to review the Samsung Rugby Smart, which was a rugged Android powered smartphone for AT&T. Now, it seems as though Samsung decided to make good use of its Galaxy moniker, as the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro is in bound for AT&T in the near future bringing along sturdiness and supreme rugged protection to the mix.

As Samsung clearly states, the Galaxy Rugby Pro is the perfect blend of brains and brawns, since it’s packing all the lovable aspects of an Android powered smartphones, while also packing some rugged features. In fact, this can really take a beating because it’s constructed to meet military specification 810g so it’s waterproof, shock resistant, and dust proof.

Now even though it’s a rugged smartphone first and foremost, it’s carrying along some lovely hardware for the ride as well to make it an attractive offering. In addition to its 4.5” WVGA Super AMOLED screen and 4G LTE connectivity, the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro also benefits with push-to-talk functionality. Therefore, if you plan on using your device in potentially risky situations, this should no doubt be something you want to take into consideration.

John, maybe it's time to make an appointment for your annual eye exam. If you can't discern the difference between a 4" screen and a 4.5" screen (btw, it's a big difference), you need to get your eyes checked out.
