First Look: AT&T's tenacious NEC Terrain

1:22 /

AT&T's NEC Terrain is equipped with rugged and waterproof capabilities, a four-row QWERTY keyboard, and Android 4.0.

Hi, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET. And today, I've got with me the NEC Terrain from AT&T. As you can see, the Terrain is more than just a regular smartphone. It's a waterproof handset that satisfies military specs for shock and dust resistance. Unfortunately, this does make it pretty bulky but then again, the device was designed more for enterprise workers working out in the field rather than your typical consumer. For instance, the phone has VPN capabilities, a Push to Talk button here for direct connect communication and encryption security for a micro SD card. The phone runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and features a 3.1-inch touchscreen with 640 by 480 pixel resolution. It has a 5 megapixel camera in the back that can record 720p video and a 0.3 megapixel camera in the front. Powering the handset is a 1.5 GHz dual core processor from Qualcomm and a 1.9 ampere-hour battery that has an estimated talk time of up to 10 hours. You'll also see that it features a 4-row onboard keyboard that sits above dual front-facing speaker. If you're interesting, the handset is available from the carrier for about $100 if you sign a 2-year contract. Again, I am Lynn and you've been checking out AT&T's NEC Terrain.
