Remember the Sonim XP1, the virtually indestructible cell phone?  To prove its worth, Sonim has built a new promotional site running a live feed of the XP1 undergoing a hammer smashing.  As of writing, the XP1 had endured almost 6,000 smashes and doesn’t appear to be damaged.  Don’t believe the XP1 still works?  Just call this number (646-309-3072) and you’ll see the phone’s screen light up and ring. Don’t believe the hammer is powerful enough?  Watch it smash the lens of a camera.

If you’re looking for one of these $400 GSM based phones you can buy it here, or win one by trying to guess how many smashes it will take to destroy the Sonim XP1.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
