Ultra-rugged Sonim XP1300 CORE announced
Sonim isn't a household name, but if you work outdoors or in rough conditions, you're probably familiar with their rugged mobile devices. They unveiled their new XP1300 CORE device today, which is the only IP-68 certified phone, which can also be submerged in 2 meters of water.

The XP1300 CORE is resistant to salt, fog, humidity, transport shock, and thermal shock. It's body is a composite of plastic and fiberglass, making it incredibly resistant to cracks or breaks, and the 2-inch high-res screen is made of Gorilla Glass. The device is also certified for use in temperatures ranging from -20 °C (-4 °F) to 55 °C (131 °F). Aiding its submersible ability is a GORE cover over the large 23mm speaker.

In addition to being rugged, the device is also quite capable. It features a noise-canceling microphone, intended to drown out background noises like machinery, high winds, etc. The XP1300 CORE's battery is also good for 18 hours of talk-time and 800 hours of standby. The keys are widely spread to accommodate gloved hands, but simply big-fingered people might enjoy the extra space as well.

Sonim CEO Bob Plaschke describes the XP 1300 CORE as "the #1 choice for construction crews, farmers, dock workers and others in tough work environments." We think it might also appeal to the generally clumsy, and parents with young children.
