Sonim Technologies: First 3G Phone Tested by Tech Reporters


San Mateo, Calif.-based Sonim Technologies announced that its Sonim XP2 Spirit phone has been put through the “Sonim Stress Test” by tech reporters.

 
Earlier this month, the company introduced Sonim XP2 Spirit, the newest device in its Xtreme Performance series. This is the company’s first 3G phone, and is military standard MIL 810G certified. Company officials said that it has cleared it to handle thermal shock, extreme temperatures, transport shock, solar radiation and salt water.
 
This next-generation Sonim XP2 mobile phone brings the “highest level of ruggedness and a fresh new look,” and has been developed for people that work and play in extreme environments, said company officials. Moreover, Spirit is also designed for consumers and professionals that want “uncompromising” performance outside of their workplace.
 
The phone was tested against Sonim’s Rugged Performance Standards, a 12-point test that ensures phones are of the highest quality and meet the needs of extreme and rugged work and lifestyles.
 
Plus, this device features a 3MP camera -- with LED flash and a dedicated camera key; a video camera, multimedia player; FM radio; MMS support for images and video; email with IMAP4 POP3 support; Web browsing, and more.
 
Bob Plaschke, CEO at Sonim, said that he encouraged reporters to test Spirit, a “little harder than their predecessor in a viral video campaign.”
 
The company invited reporters to “torture, stress and abuse the phone and were provided with the “Sonim Stress Test” kit to see how much punishment the phone could take. Company officials said that the kit contained the phone, a tool belt, blocks of wood, nails, sand paper, a Leatherman, tape measure and safety goggles.
 
Sonim Technologies manufactures rugged phones, designed and engineered specifically for people who work and play in extreme environments. The company’s XP family of phones feature “outstanding craftsmanship, extreme resilience and an unconditional three-year guarantee.”
 
Last month, the company introduced XP3.2 Quest Pro, calling it the toughest phone available with an IP67 rating.
