Sonim phones are definitely tough when you compare them to the rest of the phones in the market, and recently their Sonim XP3300 Force picked up the Guinness World Record for surviving the longest freefall, but those achievements and laurels have not stopped the company from innovating themselves even further. Right now, Sonim is about to expand their family of tough smartphones with a trio of mil-spec devices at CTIA later this week, where two of these will already arrive at the US from today onwards. The Sonic XP1301 Core NFC will kick off proceedings first, where it boasts of a tag reader that has been specially optimized for the workforce. While already available across the pond since last month, at least we living Stateside can have a tough NFC alternative.
Apart from that, there is the Sonim XP1330 Core PTT which is a Push-to-Talk device that will ship to select areas in Latin America within the coming two months. Last but not least, we have the Sonim XP3340 Sentinel that delivers an emergency panic button and a man-down sensor which will help monitor your smartphone for any freefalls or impacts, while boasting the initiative of making an emergency call on your behalf.
All three handsets will feature quadband GSM/EDGE radios, so forget about checking out image heavy websites with these. They might seem suitable for living a life of punishment though. [Press Release]
