None of us can live without our smartphone, but sometimes they are way too difficult to live with because they are so fragile! Fortunately the new Samsung Rugby Smart is a smartphone that is ready to withstand the elements. The Rugby Smart is an Android 2.3 phone thats packs in a 3.7-inch AMOLED touchscreen display, a 5MP camera, and 4G Speeds, albeit not 4G LTE. But forget those pretty medicore specs, it’s the phone’s durability that will capture your attention.
For starters, the Rugby Smart can be submerged in up to 1 meter of water for 30 minutes, it can handle significant impact, it’s dust-proof, and it can handle extreme temperatures too. Plus, even if you aren’t too much of a klutz, you might appreciate the fact that the device comes with a built-in flashlight.
The Rugby Smart is a decedant of the original rugged Ruby phone that was released in 2008. Back then, the first Rugby was designed for business users like landscapers, painters, and construction workers. However this time around, the Rugby Smart has also been designed for anyone with an active lifestyle, and that includes moms, dads, runners, campers, cyclists, etc., all whom don’t want to give up their smartphone features.
The Samsung Rugby will retail for $99 with a 2 year contract on AT&T.
