Just a quick post on a handset that isn’t especially new (i.e. it’s been visible on the interweb for a little while), but has suddenly popped on to the radar of a number of UK phone-vending websites!
This beast amongst phones is the JCB Toughphone, which is actually the Sonim XP1 ruggedised phone under another guise. The ‘kewl’ part is that JCB is part of many peoples’ memories from when they were smaller – if you lived near any building sites like I did, you will be VERY familiar with the logo, and banana-yellow colouring!
On a marginally more serious note, the specs of the handset are impressive, if only in the ruggedisation sense – operating from -20°C to 60°C, and obviously being able to withstand serious ‘drop/throw/kick/stamp/bang’ abuse
If you want to check out more on this badboy, you can look at the Sonim website for the XP1 here, or one of the many UK online phone shops selling the Toughphone, by typing “Sonim JCB” in to our favourite search engine, Google.
