Cat B15 Android phone aims to be forklift-tough
BARCELONA, Spain--Cat (yes, the same Cat of industrial forklifts, tractors, and mining equipment) has announced its latest rugged smartphone, the Cat B15.
Rocking Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, a grooved rubber back, and hard angles, the Cat B15 is aimed for construction and industrial workers. Made of hardened rubber and aluminum, I really liked the Cat B15's shape and in-hand feel even in my bare hands. It's thick and durable, and raised yellow buttons along the side and top are both tactile and visible.
Dust flaps around the headset jack and charging port help keep it waterproof for up to 1 meter in depth for 30 minutes, and dust-proof, both standard requirements for durable phones (specification class: iP67).
Rugged CAT B15Q and S50 phones now available in US
Previously only offered in Europe, the tough-as-nails smartphones have made their way across the pond.
