Sonim unveils Sonim XP3300 FORCE GSM handset at MWC 2011
The name Sonim evokes a sense of security and ruggedness, simply because they have proven in the past that their handsets have long been the tough nuts of the industry. Well, it makes perfect sense then for the company to introduce their latest Sonim XP3300 FORCE GSM handset at Mobile World Congress 2011 in Barcelona, Spain.
This ultra-rugged MRM-ready handset was specially designed to help enterprises and government organizations locate, track and manage mobile workers, their tasks and assets. Of course, it is an evolution in engineering after being built on lessons that were learned from serving half a million customers with the toughest jobs on earth, where among some of them toil at 16 hour shifts. Let us see how Sonim’s XP3300 FORCE will be able to maximize workforce efficiency, minimize downtime and enhance safety in industries such as transportation, logistics and utilities.
Sonim’s handsets will be able to stretch the limits of phone engineering, where among them include working just fine after being submerged in an antifreeze mixture for quite some time, while having it dropped for more than 30 meters proved to be nothing more than a tickle for the XP3300 FORCE. Apart from that, casting it in concrete is guaranteed to send other phones to their tombs, but this handset shrugs it off as though it was nothing.
Just what other superlatives can we use to describe the Sonim XP3300 FORCE? How about professional-grade Assisted GPS that delivers highly accurate locations and faster location fixes due to the excellent signal sensitivity? It also has a pretty long lasting battery, boasting up to 20 to 24 hours of talk time or GPS tracking time of up to 26 hours with MRM applications.
Apart from that, it will feature a 2-megapixel camera with a bright LED flash and digital zoom, Sonim JAVA Application Manager (JAM) store support, quad band GSM support, as well as GPRS and EDGE data capability. Yeah, you won’t be rocking to any 3G connection anytime soon, but then again we don’t think working in deep mining tunnels would get you a reception either.
This IP-68 rated, water and dust proof handset also boasts a 2″ high-resolution display is protected by a class-leading 1.5 mm thick Corning Gorilla Glass lens, and has been certified to stand up against salt, fog, humidity, transport shock, and thermal shock and operates in temperatures ranging from -20 degrees C to +55 degrees C. Backed by Sonim’s 3-Year Comprehensive Warranty, you would definitely make the Sonim XP3300 FORCE GSM handset a priority if you’re the numero uno butterfingers in your family (or corporation).
