We first heard about Sonim a few years ago, as they launched two phones with the Land Rover branding
, the S1 and S2 G4, as well as their standard XP1
, XP3 Enduro
and XP3 Quest
models, all of which are built to take a beating. Sonim has now introduced a new model to its XP3 line, oddly enough called the XP3.2 Quest Pro
. This new model comes with a Gorilla Glass display, which is also featured on the Motorola DROID
, to help protect it from scratches and nicks. But wait...there's more...as the phone has an IP67 rating to survive being dropped on a concrete surface from a 6.5 feet, submerged it in water, ability withstand temperatures from -5 to +130 degrees, protection from dust and micro-particles, and is resistant to extreme pressure, crushing, punctures, and petroleum oil. There is also a long-lasting battery to provide up to 18 hours of talk time or 1500 hours (over 2 months) of standby time. Other features include a 2MP camera with flash, GPS, flashlight, FM radio, 2GB memory slot, Java applications such as Trimble Outdoors, amAze GPS navigation,SonimMail, an Opera Mini browser and Bluetooth. The Sonim XP3.2 Quest Pro has a 3 year unconditional guarantee warranty and can be purchased from AT&T, T-Mobile and other retailers, such as BestBuy and Amazon, for $449 unlocked.
