Rugged Samsung Xcover E2370 offers 67 days of stand-by time

Samsung has officially announced a new rugged phone (in Sweden): the Samsung Xcover.

Although this is just an entry-level device, it has an outstanding capability: its battery can last up to 67 days (2 months) in stand-by, or up to 22 hours in talk-time mode – Philips Xenium phones are so yesterday now, with their ridiculous 1 month of stand-by time.

First I though the Xcover is a never-seen-before handset, but it’s actually the E2370 that Samsung showcased in February at MWC 2010.

Anyway. The Xcover is IP54-certified, thus being dust and splash resistant. The phone weighs 115 and it’s quite bulky (19mm thick). It features GSM/EDGE connectivity, a 128 x 160 pixels TFT display, Bluetooth, FM radio, VGA photo camera, 5MB of internal memory, and MicroSD card support (up to 2GB).

In Sweden, the Samsung Xcover E2370 will be available starting July, for only 750 SEK (about €78 or $96). Other European markets will likely get the phone next month, too.
