AT&T unveils NEC Terrain – rugged, QWERTY keyboard-equipped Android ICS smartphone

AT&T unveils NEC Terrain

AT&T announced the addition of NEC Terrain to its portfolio of business-ready devices. The ruggedized smartphone comes with a scratch-resistant Corning Gorilla Glass screen and “sturdy core construct” that exceeds the military specifications (MIL-810G) for shock distribution, allowing it to work even in the toughest working conditions.

Specs wise, the Terrain sports a full QWERTY keyboard, 3.1-inch touchscreen, 4G LTE connectivity support, 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, and dedicated Enhanced PTT (Push-To-Talk) key for quick access to other members of the team. In addition, there’s also a 5-megapixel camera on the back, VGA front-facing one and 8GB of expandable memory (via microSD cards).

Available through AT&T Business Solutions channels and online beginning June 21, the NEC Terrain is priced at $99.99 with a two-year agreement and can be purchased from here.

Personally I love this form factor though I dislike the extra bulkiness rugged phones add to the mix. How about you – do you like the NEC Terrain?

    Love the form factor and would like to see more of these devices released around the world. Cause not all of us live in the US. 🙂

  • I like it just because of the keyboard. Keyboard phones are an endangered species.
