-- At the Tough Phone we supply high specifications rugged smart phones. We are a new company but we all have vast experience from different telecommunication backgrounds. At The Tough Phone we wanted to offer a solution for people who work in harsh environments. We have all seen broken screens, water damaged phones or meet people who are reluctant to enter the smart phone world because of the fear of their phone being broken. Whether its on a farm, building site or security sector the need for a rugged smart device, we believe is a real and very important one.
Our new product is named the ‘Defender.’
The Defender is a top spec smartphone. It has all the features of any latest flag ship device you may find in you local phone shop. The Defender boosts an 8 megapixel camera, 4 Gigabyte of on board memory, which can be expanded to 64Gb with a standard micro SD card. With its 1.2 Ghz dual core processor it can handle all the latest applications you want to load onto the Android 4.2 operating system. But what makes our Defender phone stand out from the rest of the crowd is the fact it can be operated in harsh or potentially hazardous conditions. The majority of current smart devices simply do not stand up to these demands. Most popular smart devices are at risk to water damage, the Defender has been dropped into 2 meters of water, for an hour and worked fine after. Not just that but also the Defender has been locked in box full of dust particles from different materials, vigorously shaken and emerged after an hour without any dust particles making it to the inside of the device. This has given our handset an outstanding IP rating of 68. The 4” screen is made from toughened Asahi glass so it can withstand knocks and bangs which will typically occur while working in harsh and hard conditions which the Defender thrives in.
The Defender has been a real hit with various companies who would need such a device. Building contractors are making real use of its ruggedness and its walkie talkie feature which has allowed our users to communicate to several people without the need to make several phone calls. Security companies are utilising the Lone Worker solution to keep track of their employees. The Lone Worker application can be installed on the Defender and it will allow regular contact with the lone worker and supervisor, automatic warning will operate if specific signals are not received periodically from the lone worker. The obvious benefits of these features is that it makes working on your own more secure and help can be alerted quickly if a situation was to arise. As the defender is dual SIM so you can insert 2 sim cards to ensure you always have reception.
At the Tough Phone we are looking for new partners to take on this exciting new device. We believe that there is a huge opportunity in this market. It solves various problems across the working environment and can also in some cases make going to work a lot safer then it may have been. The solutions it can offer are endless. If you would like the opportunity to become one of our partners then please get in touch with us through our website on www.TheToughPhone.com
