Verykool R80 Rugged Mobile – Looks More Like A Luxury Phone
Rugged phones are generally not attractive to look at. They tend to be boxy things with little thought put into the style since they are expected to survive harsh conditions.
Verykool has done a decent job of living up to its name with the new R80 rugged phone. The thing looks more like a luxury phone than a rugged device. The R80 looks like one of those designer phones that turn up from time to time and for some reason it reminds us of the suit in Crysis.
The handset is a quad band phone with GSM/GPRS class 12 tech inside. The phone is water and shock resistant and has a 2.4-inch screen.
That screen has a QVGA resolution for the font screen and the rear screen is a 1-inch OLED. The phone is billed as a survival phone and has features like GPS, altimeter, barometer, thermometer, eCompass, UV detector, pedometer, dual SIM slots and a flashlight.
Other features include a 2MP camera that can record video, a FM tuner, and support for MP3 and MP4 music. The phone can sync with a PC and be used as a USB modem. Internal memory is 30MB and that storage can be expanded with microSD cards to 32GB. Pricing is unknown at this time.
