Dewalt enters the smartphone industry
Dewalt, the construction giant, jumped into the race of smartphones by creating a tough handset based on the Android software that is specifically designed for building workers.
The £379 device is designed to survive a 2m drop onto concrete and to operate in temperatures ranging from -20c to 60c.
For mobile phones to be certified as "tough" they need to undergo a lot of tests like tumbling (turned over and over again inside a device for a long time) while proving that they are capable of resisting both water and sand.
As their size is bigger than the average's mobile phone. they are able to incorporate a bigger battery lasting up to 8 hours of talk time.
The touchscreen is made of commercially manufactured Gorilla Glass enabling workers to have access without having to take their gloves off.
