Wages of Sim

To keep a beady eye on the wage slaves, a software update will soon bring a load of Mobile Resource Management or MRM functions including a tracking option that pings the phone’s GPS location every five minutes. Of course, all work and no play makes Jack a dull boy, so you also get a media player that can handle MP3, WMA and WAV files and an FM radio.

Verdict

As tough as they come, the XP3300 is the handset of choice if your work or play takes you to places insurance companies and the sane fear to tread. The handset is near enough indestructible, the battery life can be measured in geological time and you get plenty of bells and whistles including a decent camera and GPS. It’s also every easy to use, a feature not to be underestimated if you are trying to make a call in adverse conditions. At £295 the price is not unreasonable for a device that could well outlast its owner. ®
