The Land Rover S1 from Sonim Technologies is pretty much the cellphone for Wolverine since it eschews similar qualities as the ol’ canucklehead – it is nigh indestructible despite not being laced with a single atom of adamantium. The Land Rover S1 is touted to be the world’s first IP-67 rated GSM mobile, making it immune to dust as well as being waterproof up to 1m. In addition, you can throw the S1 around without much care since it is dirt, shock and drop resistant, capable of handling up to 400kgs of pressure before breaking. The handset comes in sort of a pre-owned state, and we mean that in a good way. After all, buttons on it has undergone tests of over 500,000 pushes before being approved, while the battery offers a phenomenal standby time of 1,500 hours as well as 18 hours of talk time. Other features include a 2-megapixel waterproof camera, built-in GPS, torch light, an integrated FM radio, 2GB memory slot, WAP browser and Bluetooth connectivity. At $490 a pop, it is surprisingly cheap considering the amount of punishment it can take.
