Caterpillar’s Cat B15 rugged phone now available in the UK
The Cat B15, one of the phones that promise to withstand just about anything you could possibly throw at them, is now available in the UK, as well as some other parts of the world, for that matter.
The price is the one announced upon the Cat B15’s launch in February, £299.99, and you can already get this beast at UK retailers such as Amazon.co.uk, Digital Phone Company and Unlockedmobiles.com. The price is the same, no matter which retailer you choose.
The same Cat site also lists retailers for its rugged smartphone in the U.S. (you can get it for $399.99 at Quality One Wireless), Germany (Conrad already lists it at a discounted €299, while Amazon.de has it at €313.90), as well as in Spain, Portugal, Sweden, France, Denmark, Norway and Switzerland (Cat link below).
The successor of the Cat B10 has a 4-inch Gorilla Glass screen (800 x 480 pixel resolution), a dual-core 1GHz MediaTek MT6577 CPU and can take a 1.8-meter drop on concrete or a dive in one-meter deep water without any problems (it’s IP67 certified). It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, so you won’t have to make a compromise in that sense for its ruggedness.
Are you a fan of rugged smartphones? Do you plan on getting a Cat B15?
