Rugged-phone maker claims world's longest talk time

More-more jaw-jaw

Business security measures using SSL

MWC 2011 Want a phone with the longest possible talk time? Sonim, a phone maker which specialises in rugged handsets, announced just such a device at Mobile World Congress (MWC) this week.

It's the XP3300 Force, and its 126 x 60 x 25mm frame contains a 1750mAh battery that, the company claimed, will let to natter away for 22 hours.

Nothing to say? It'll keep going for 800 hours - more than 33 days - in stand-by mode.

Sonim XP3300 Force

Despite the XP3300's resilience to sub-zero - down to -20°C - temperatures, immersion in water, loss in fog and generally being chucked around building sites, you don't get much tech for your extended talk time. This handset is quad-band GSM/Edge only. There's no 3G, no Wi-Fi, the camera is just 2Mp and the screen a 2in, 240 x 320 job.

But it does have GPS with a satnav app included, and an FM radio. It comes with Opera Mini for web browsing.

The X3300 Force will be out in Q2 for an as-yet-undisclosed sum. ®
