Rugged Sonim XP2 Spirit smashed and battered at Mobile World Congress

Is your work considered extreme? Would Mike Rowe think twice about walking onto your job?  Check out the latest from Sonim Technologies, a part of their Xtreme Performance series, the Sonim XP2 Spirit is a rugged new 3G phone designed for anyone in the Calgary oil fields, to the deep Alaskan mines.

Tough is as tough gets. A magnesium core houses your phones internals, and a dual injected shell layered in hardened rubber, fiberglass and nylon give it the shock and water proofing it needs.  Most workers need loud phones, so the extra-loud audio speaker is also covered in GORE-TEX for waterproofing.

As a Java phone, it has a host of applications, even multimedia ones. A 3-megapixel shooter with LED flash for higher quality pictures and video.

Proven rugged and certified to IP-67/MIL-810G standards for protection against rain, fog and salt air.   The video from Business Wire shows just how rugged, journalists at Mobile World Congress attempt to cause damage to the XP2, they used it as a hammer, submerged it in a fish tank, smashed nails into it, just about everything they could do within the confines of a hotel without causing too much of a ruckus.

“We’ve watched our customers closely and have seen how they struggle when they don’t have a Sonim phone in-hand. We strive to deliver the strongest phones that can withstand the noise of a jackhammer, a rocky mountain face, splashing water or intense wind and rain,” said Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim. “The Spirit continues Sonim’s tradition of marrying technology and toughness and now introduces 3G to deliver the best rugged mobile phone on the market. The Spirit will be available in stores across Europe next month.”
