Latest ultra rugged Sonim handset has long life
Sonim has brought its latest ultra-rugged handset to the Mobile World Congress show in Spain with the XP3300 Force. While the exterior is the same tried and tested design shared by others in the lineup, it differs by offering talk time that ranges between 20 and 24 hours. Alternatively, the phone can last the same amount of time in GPS tracking mode, or up to 800 hours in standby.
