Sonim’s new phones flaunt smarts and toughness

by Truck News

TORONTO, Ont. – If your smartphone can’t handle the harsh grind of your demanding day-to-day life, Sonim Technologies’ XP7 or XP5 could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

Built to be tough enough for the harshest of conditions, Sonim’s new smartphones are built with those in the transportation, oil and gas, manufacturing and constructions industries in mind.

Both the XP7 and XP5 are resistant to dust, water, oil and chemicals, temperature, extreme pressure and are drop resistant. They can be used while wearing work gloves and boast extra loud speakers, noise cancellation and come with a three-year warranty.

The XP7 runs on Android’s 4.4 Kit Kat operating system, while the XP5 is on a proprietary operating system and features a 2.4-inch glass display, compared to the 4-inch display with glove touch of the XP7.

Both are available through Telus, Bell and Rogers, with the XP7 also offered by Sasktel.

On a two-year plan, the XP7 ranges from $200-$270 ($650-$750 with no contract) and the XP5 goes from $70-$200 ($400 with no contract).
