Sonim Announce Deal with Land Rover & New XP3 Handset

Lets start of by telling you about the deal that Sonim has just signed with car manufacturer Land Rover. Together they`ll produce co-branded rugged mobile phones and the first models will see daylight next year. The first two models should be available by mid-2009 named the Land Rover S1 and Land Rover S2 G4. A third one is expected to hit the market a bit later in 2009. The companies plan to contract with some of the top operators and to spread their phones in 40 countries.

Just as the latest Sonim XP3, all Land Rover handsets will be submersible and should withstand salt, fog, humidity, transport and thermal shock. They are also supposed to survive a 1.6-meter drop to concrete.
