Sonim makes claim of world's longest talk time

Sonim makes claim of world's longest talk time
Sonim, makers of some seriously ruggedized phones, have made an announcement at the Mobile World Congress of a new phone that they claim has the world’s longest talk time of a whopping 22 hours.

The phone is called XP3300 Force. Powering the phone is a large 1750mAh battery. The reasoning behind this absurd amount of talk time might have to do with the fact that this phone is really, well, just a phone. It does not pack WiFi or 3G data services, but you probably wouldn’t need them anyway for the excursions that this device is intended for.

It has a 2-megapixel camera on the back of its husky body and a 2-inch display on the front. It looks very similar to some of Sonim’s offerings from the past. Furthermore, this phone can be operated in extremely freezing temperatures as cold as -20°C and can deal with water submersion. Oh and if you don’t use this phone to talk all that often, its standby time will get you about 33 days’ worth battery life. That’s pretty impressive, right? Tell us what you think in the comments below.

My metric measurements aren't very sharp.. but 20 degrees celsius isn't that cold? I hope the article meant -20C? That would be pretty impressive. Sweet phone though.

Not sure what you read, but it says -20 degrees. "Furthermore, this phone can be operated in extremely freezing temperatures as cold as -20°C and can deal with water submersion"

It originally said 20 degrees. Looks like they corrected it.

This is great. If I ever get stuck on the top of Mt. Everest and I suddenly feel the urge to have a long conversation with someone I'll know what phone to bring.

Or if you are stuck and dying? (Devils Advocate, I wouldn't ever own a phone like this).

Except it's colder than -20 deg C and there are no towers nearby, so you'll have no service...
