Huawei gets tough with Discovery Channel handset

HELLO? I'M ON SAFARI

Huawei ventured further into the rugged terrain of mobile phones this week, unveiling a toughened handset stamped with Discovery Channel branding.

The Huawei Discovery Expedition is prepped to survive the elements, boasting dustproof, anti-shock and waterproof protections. It also crams in a torch, compass and GPS and G-sensor, supplying campers with handy tools for the great outdoors. It's unlikely to protect you from any hungry bears, though.

According to the Huawei, the Expedition is merely the first of many Discovery Communications collaborations and we can expect further products to stampede the market in the near future.

The Huawei Discovery Expedition will roll out in Q4 2011 as part of the Discovery Expedition line, the company's official lifestyle brand of Discovery Channel. Prices are yet to be determined. ®
