Sonim Technologies, makers of the world’s toughest Xtreme Performance (XP) rugged phones, today announces that the Sonim XP3 Quest is available at BestBuy.com and select Best Buy Mobile Stores across the United States. The XP3 Quest is the only phone available with an IP67 rating – making it completely dust resistant and waterproof in depths of up to 3.3 feet.

The XP3 Quest is tested to Sonim’s stringent Rugged Performance Standard, developed to ensure the highest standard for rugged phones. For example, the Sonim XP3 Quest:

  • provides top-line lithium ion batteries capable of providing 1500 hours of standby time and up to 18 hours of talk time. This is suitable for miners spending days at a time working underground;
  • equips all its phones with customised keypads and widely spaced keys that are tested to 500,000 pushes. Construction workers can make calls without removing their gloves;
  • has custom speakers capable of producing up to 110db of sound, 45% more than a regular mobile phone. Paramedics can call for assistance despite the noisy sirens overhead.

The XP3 Quest can survive being dropped from up to 6.5 feet onto concrete, submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, and tolerates temperatures from -5 to +130 degrees. The phone has a shock-resistant screen and meets the military-level MIL-810F certification for resistance to humidity, salt, shock and heat. It is equipped with a 2MB camera with built-in flash, assisted GPS, a torch light, an FM radio, a 2GB memory slot, J2ME Java for mobile, an Opera Mini WAP browser and Bluetooth.

“Like all Sonim phones, the XP3 Quest comes with a three unconditional-year guarantee. If anything breaks, the company will replace it,” said Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim. “We’ve defined our own set of Rugged Performance Standards that ensure our phones are both tough and useful.”

The Sonim Rugged Performance Standard includes:

  • Extra-Long battery life
  • Durable keyboard mechanics
  • Extra loud speakers
  • Protection from dust and micro particles
  • Protection from water
  • Protection from drops
  • Protection from shocks and vibrations
  • Protection from extreme temperatures
  • Resistant to extreme pressure/crush
  • Resistant to punctures
  • Resistant to petroleum oil
