According to Motorola, it will operate at between -10C and 55C, survive four-foot drops onto hard surfaces, and 15 minutes of use in heavy rainfall.. so long as we had plenty of bars of reception.

We're not sure we'd pick the Sanyo Pro 200 over the rugged, military-spec Sanyo Pro 700, which doesn't cost much more, but even by itself the Pro 200 makes a great addition to the Direct Connect lineup. Release: June 2008. Price: $40. A wealth of messaging options and a quick, though basic Web browser were also surprising finds. We definitely prefer this phone to its recently-released sibling, the Sanyo Pro 200, and on such a rugged device we're willing to forgive the bulldog face. Release: June 2008. Price: $90. . Pros: Rugged on the outside, refined on the inside. Loads of features, including GPS and lots of messaging options. . Cons: When reception dips, so does call quality. Direct Connect doesn't work outside of EV-DO Rev. A coverage.
Sony Ericsson's SO902iWP+ You know what sucks? Spending a ton of cash on a tricked-out cell phone only to have your new toy crippled by an unexpected coffee spill. Should you be somewhat accident-prone around liquids, cell phone will endure spills, splashes — even total immersion in water — and still keep right on ticking (and snapping 1.3-megapixel pictures!). Yes, your dream of taking your cell phone swimming has finally been realized. Just think of the potential accessories: rubber lanyard/antenna combos, Bluetooth snorkels, and whale-song ringtones. And hey, if you ever want to clean the phone, just spray it down with a little Fantastik. Nice. Looks like this mobile is available only in Japan, but we'll keep our eyes out for the amphibious technology making a beachhead on U.S. shores. — Peter Pachal.
