The Sonim XP3300 Force has debuted at the Mobile World Congress (MWC), offering the “longest talk time in the world” and typically robust specs.
According to Sonim, the handset offers between 20 and 24 hours of talk time on a single charge. Standby time is a positively gargantuan 800 hours.
In keeping with Sonim’s form with phones that can take a knocking and keep on rocking, the XP3300’s shell is fashioned from fibreglass. The 1.5mm-thick screen, meanwhile, is made of the same Gorilla Glass that features on the iPhone 4.
All that adds up to a handset that will withstand temperatures of between -4 and 131 Fahrenheit . You can also drop it with impunity from a distance of 6.5m on to concrete or submerge it in water and rest assured it’ll be good as new.
An imminent update for the A-GPS enabled phone will add a host of Mobile Resource Management functions aimed at companies with mobile workforces (haulage truckers, say). These include fleet tracking, time card reports and event confirmation.
