We’re not looking to blow up any more phones, but if Sonim (are you listening) is willing to send us their latest handset, the XP3300, we’d be willing to give it a shot.

Stupid video stunts aside, the XP3300 looks like the rugged handset to have in your pocket, especially if you’re the type to get lost high in the mountains during a wintery snow storm that is jam packed with pools of water.  

It’s battery is good for up to 24 hour of talk time, or 800 hours of standby time.  It can survive a fall of up to 6 feet, be dunked in 6 feet of water, keep ticking through temperatures of -4 to 131 degrees Fahrenheit.  It also sports a 2-inch 1.5mm thick Corning Gorilla Glass display, GPS functionality, a 2 megapixel camera, quad-band connectivity as well as a slew of other enterprise, big brother like apps for those of you looking to keep a keen eye on your employees.

No word on a released date, but we’d expect it to hit the EU first.

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."
