Verizon launches its first ultra-rugged 4G LTE basic handset, the Sonim XP5
The Sonim XP5 features a 2.4-inch display, with a resolution of 240 x 320. Powering the handset is the Snapdragon 400 chipset with a dual-core 1.2GHz CPU and the Adreno 306 GPU. 1GB of RAM is inside along with 4GB of native storage. Dual front-facing speakers allow you to hear conversations easily even in an area where loud machinery is running. There is a 5MP camera on board, and you can talk to a single person or an entire group with a single tap of the PTT button.
The phone comes with a three-year warranty that covers accidental damage. To activate the warranty, the phone must be registered within 30-days of purchase. You can buy the Sonim XP5 for $14 a month over 24 months, or fork over the entire retail price of $336.
Also launching today at Verizon is the Global Modem USB730L. Priced at $80 with a signed two-year contract, or $249.99 retail, this device gives you 4G LTE connectivity in the states, and secure access to the internet in over 200 countries. The modem is compatible with both iOS and Android allowing you to plug and play.
