WOAH, this is just downright awesome! The annual CTIA wireless industry show is on this week in Vegas and as usual, there’s plenty of cool announcements coming out of the mobile ecosystem. One announcement that really got my attention comes out of Cat (Caterpillar Inc), you know, the guys who make all that awesome, rugged, construction equipment and plenty of other goodies! This week Cat has announced their very own, rugged, smartphone – the Cat B15.
About the device – The Cat B15 is designed to be the most progressive, durable and rugged device available on the market. Its robust design includes the ability to withstand a 5.9 foot drop and being submerged in up to 3.2 feet of water for 30 minutes. In addition, the 4-inch multi-touch screen can be used with wet fingers and the device is also dustproof and scratch resistant. The Cat B15 is designed for a diverse audience from outdoor adventurers (snowboarders, mountain bikers, etc.) to industrial/construction workers or anyone looking for a phone that withstands dropping, bumping, water and dust. The new device runs on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean and dual core 1GHZ processor. I luv it!! See more detail in the official PR
