Rugged phones are usually more rugged than pretty, since they are made to survive harsh conditions. But here’s the exception. A company called Verykool has a new rugged phone called the R80 that looks attractive. The phone is a quad band device supporting 850/900/1800/1900 frequencies and it uses GPRS class 12 technology.
Some other features include a 2.4-inch screen and it has a screen on the back that is a 1-inch OLED. There’s also Bluetooth, USB tethering, and PC sync capability as well as a 2MP camera and four hours of talk time and ten days on standby.
The internal memory is just 30MB but the phone has a microSD card slot for expansion up to 32GB. It’s also waterproof and shockproof.
