These tough phones have a great shelf life and appeal to a broad set of end users, from clumsy types, to hard hat wearing workers on site, to field engineers. They look good and, of course, invite attempts to break them, which is added entertainment value in my book.
While the Ventura Rugged Mobile is strong, it’s not really tough. However, we hope to have more to show you soon from Data Select’s deal with JCB on the launch of a new range of really tough phones due out any time now. The range will offer a number of handsets from entry level to smartphone, opening up Toughphone technology to customers of all levels. Whereas the original JCB Toughphone focused on strength, the new range will be feature-rich with dual SIM, camera, fully waterproof, GPS, torch and touchscreen technology available on selected models.
Can’t wait to try and break them!!
