Nokia 3720 classic

Nokia today confirmed details of its first rugged phone in recent memory. The 3720 classic meets IP-54 levels of resistance to dust, shock and water splashes with both a hardened, sealed shell and a battery cover that's screwed on. Nokia sees it as an ideal phone for those who regularly go camping or visit the beach, and to match gives it a relatively long talk time (7 hours) and an LED flashlight.

Its actual functionality is kept relatively simple with a 2-megapixel camera as its best feature. Data is limited to EDGE, and a bundled 1GB microSD card carries the brunt of its storage, including Nokia Maps for those using an external GPS add-on. Limiting the features brings the pre-subsidy price down to about 125 Euros ($174) for when the 3720 classic ships later this summer; it currently doesn't support North American GSM.
