Nokia has officially announced the new Nokia 3720 Classic, a sturdy and durable phone that's IP-54 certified to resist water, dust, and shock.

Early looks at the Nokia 3720 Classic have proved to us that this is certainly one rugged phone (it has to be, after surviving several beatings with a golf club and getting dunked in a pint of beer). It has a battery cover that's locked with a screw to protect the battery and circuitry, and a sealed leakproof design that comes in variety of colors. Unlike a lot of other rugged phones, like the Sonim XP1 , the Nokia 3720 Classic is also quite stylish-looking.

It doesn't have too much in the way of features, though. This Series 40 phone has a nice 2.2-inch display, a 2-megapixel camera with LED flash, a microSD card slot with preloaded 1GB card, a stereo FM radio, a LED flashlight, and Bluetooth 2.1, but no GPS. The Nokia 3720 will retail for around 125 Euros some time this summer.
