Canada: Sonim XP1300 Core launched by Rogers
The (very) rugged, IP-68 rated, built to military standards Sonim XP1300 Core phone has been launched in Canada by Rogers.
From the start, you should know that this device isn’t for you if you’re more interested in how many apps a phone can run than in whether you can run it over with a car and it would still work afterwards. This is one for the professional who lives and/or works in tough conditions, who needs to have a phone he or she can depend on no matter what. Or it’s for those who simply don’t view their phone as a delicate electronic device, and are known to jump with it into pools, oceans, and so on.
In other words, this isn’t a phone for everyone. But those of you looking for a phone that can withstand almost anything will need to look no further. Rogers will give you a Sonim XP1300 Core for $149.99 if you agree to sign a new three-year contract, $199.99 with a two-year agreement, and $249.99 if you’d rather only commit for one year. If however you don’t want to have to do any contract signing whatsoever, the device can be yours for $299.99.
The Sonim XP1300 Core is built to withstand drops, shocks, vibrations, and rain, and it operates in temperatures ranging from -20 C to 55 C. It has a Gorilla Glass scratch resistant screen, and comes with noise cancelling tech and an extra loud speaker for easy communication no matter how loud the environment. It’s also Bluetooth-capable.
