Nokia's 3720: the firm's most rugged phone to date

The phone features IP-54 toughness certification concerning dust resistance, protection from splashes and fortification against drops.

A screw is used to lock the 3720 battery cover into place, providing “worry-free usage in wet, dusty or muddy environments”, Nokia claims.

An LED flashlight means the phone can also be used as a torch, should you find yourself without any available lighting one dark evening.

The spec include a 2.2in display, a 2Mp camera, Nokia Maps and a Micro SD memory card slot. Nokia is to bundle a 1GB Micro SD card with every 3720.
