Ultra-rugged Sonim XP1300 CORE announced
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.
