Into rugged phones? If so, here’s a new one you can keep an eye out for, the Motorola BRUTE i686.
This tough Motorola flip phone packs a 2.2-inch 176x220 resolution internal display, 2-megapixel camera with flash, Bluetooth2.1, GPS, and a durable 1700mAh battery that can reportedly provide up to 350 minutes of continuous use/up to 150 hours of standby time. Just like most phones in its category, this baby is US defense standard Mil0Spec 810G certified, and is water submersible up to 1 meter for up to 30 minutes. We still don’t know though how much it’ll cost or when it’ll exactly debut, but it is confirmed coming to the Mike (Telus) network.
For more info on this, you can check out the BRUTE at the Motorola Canada website.
UPDATE: And just like that, it's now available on Mike (Telus). It's priced at $199.99 on a 3-year contract or $399.99 off-contract. More details can be found here.
