In a few weeks, Samsung will be releasing the SGH-a837, dubbed the “Rugby,” a phone that brings together advanced technology and toughness, ideal for those rugged work environments that require both. We’ve got our hands on one (don’t ask how, just say thank you), and we’re going to spill the beans.
The phone’s got a durable exterior that’s damage resistant, and has Push To Talk Technology and a large speaker. Don’t think that’s good enough? Well, the Rugby’s also certified to Military Standard MIL-STD-810F for dust, shock, vibration, rain, humidity, solar radiation, altitude and temperature extremes.
On the inside, AT&T and Samsung have worked together to make sure the Rugby has the capabilities to keep its users from missing a beat. Its got 3G, AT&T Navigator, Mobile Email, and MEdia Net. They’ve also made sure that there shouldn’t be any barrier between a personal phone and a work phone. The Rugby comes with Video Share, Cellular Video, AT&T mobile Music, a 1.3 megapixel Camera, Text messaging, as well as Instant Messaging.
The gallery’s below so be sure to check out the close-ups. This phone came in a special Samsung toolbox, especially for AT&T B2B employees, so don’t think that this will be the packaging for consumers when the phone hits the market.
