A new rugged smartphone



CAT announced the new CAT B15 Android Smartphone that could possibly be the most durable smartphone yet.


This new smartphone has an aluminium and rubber exterior that can survive about six foot drops, stays under shallow water for thirty minutes and stays functioning in temperatures between -4F to 122F. Even with all the protection, the phone feels surprisingly light. Even with a strong outside, the inside also has some solid features; CAT B15 runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, has a 1GHz dual-core MediaTek processor, 5-megapixle camera, 512MB of RAM and 4GB of memory.


CAT (Caterpillar) is construction design and manufacturing company that drives around the yellow construction vehicles. Designing a smartphone is a first for the company.

This smartphone is clearly not geared toward the average Joe. It's for workers in extreme environments who need the military grade protection. The phone is decently priced at $392 (300 euros). CAT B15 will debut in Germany in March, then make its way to the United States by the end of April. For more information, see the below sites:
