Ruggear - World´s most rugged smartphones - they are smart - but die hard
There are quite a few Outdoor phones on the market by now - some of them quite tough – but most of them limited in useful extras like a quality camera or comfortable internet browsing. Not only because of slow processors internet utilization and acces to apps are hardly possible. But now, finally there´s remedy. We were waiting for it for a long time: a really rugged Outdoor Smartphone, a Smartphone, which handles a intensive bath in water with the same ease as an drop out of up to 2 metres height. And even more, it stands temperatures from minus 20 (-4°F) to plus 60 degrees celsius (+140°F) and is absolutly dustproofed, perfectly suited for days at the beach as well as long and adventurous journeys. All these characteristics are bundled in the RugGear 700. The RG700 is unbeaten in its ruggedness and is the first Outdoor Smartphone with IP 68 certification – the highest existing degree of protection of enclosure. Furthermore, the RG700 fulfills the military standard 810 G, which is quite usefull for adventurous pacifists, too. :-) … Moreover, it meets asthetical requirements and, despite its extremly rugged safety shell, comes quite handy.
The 5.3“ RugDisplay, the 1 GHz Dual Core Processor and a 960 x 540 pixel resolution offer you an fast overview wherever you are and independent of weather conditions. Water, dust and even high variations in temperature won´t affect the performance of the RG700. Adding GPS for navigation, G-Sensor, compass, barometer and altimeter - getting lost is a problem of the past.
Thanks to the 3 watt stereospeaker with a performance of 100 dB communication is possible in every situation. Additionally, the RG700 is equiped with radio and mp3-player and therefore provides the individual soundtrack for all of your adventures. 8 GB (upgradeable to 32 GB) internal memory make sure there´s room for plenty of them. The radio is suitable for weather forecast. And the easy and fast access to internet let you check urgent emails and provides important information in the world wide web.

Conclusion: The RugGear 700 is the ideal companion on journeys, adventures and in pioneer work or at construction sites, where it is rough going. The perfect rugged Smartphone for explorers and adventurer.
There are some waterproofed Smartphones on the market but most of them are only splash water proofed, which means they won´t endure a real bath or even a deeper dive. The RG700 stands out of these conventional Smartphones. It is made for going under water –a couple of metres deep and for up to half an hour. Moreover, you can shoot some nice under water pictures with the 8 megapixel camera.
The semi-rugged Smartphones of other producers better shouldn´t fall down neither. The RugGear 700 tolerates drops from up to 2 metres height. And if you don´t have a hammer by hand just take the RG700.
A detailed presentation – in Russian – however the video speaks for itself.
And that´s not all. RugGear offers floatable and even explosionproofed mobile phones for everyone.
Beside the RG 700, we are looking forward to the floatable RugGear 100. We will use both devices under rugged conditions and afterwards tell you how they perfomed.
