A new, rugged, mobile phone has been unveiled by Nautiz. Called the X5, the new mobile will run on the popular Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system. Reports say that the new handset can operate in extreme temperatures. Apparently, the phone will still remain usable up to 55 degrees centigrade and down to -20 degrees centigrade.
In addition, the phone is also aimed at specific environments as it is dust resistant and will also be able to withstand sand intrusion.
Finally, the design will also be able to resist high impacts. For example, you will be able to drop the chassis from a height of 1.8 metres and still expect the phone to work perfectly well, according to the Unwired website.
Other features include a 3.5-inch touch-screen packing in 480x640 pixels, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, a barcode scanner, GPS and a three-megapixel camera. The price and release dates for the UK market have yet to be announced.
Will the Nautiz be able to compete with that other mobile hard case, the Sonim XP3 Eduro?
