Launch of world's first 3G dual-SIM rugged, waterproof mobile phone
Launching in Hong Kong on 13 April 2011 at the Spring Electronics Fair there, the world's first 3G rugged, waterproof, dual SIM mobile phone is being presented by ITTM Monaco, aptly named the ITTM Outlimits 3G Dual Sim. This IP (Ingress Protection) 67 rated phone is waterproof and dustproof and can house two SIM cards (on dual standby) to increase the chance of network coverage. The exciting news is that this is the first of the ruggedised dual-SIM phones to feature 3G, using the latest, fastest mobile data transfer technology. Additional features include email, PTT (Push To Talk), two cameras with video, radio and torch.
The phone is expected to be available in the UK early summer. Prices are expected to be less than £250 in the UK.
