Sonim Rugged LTE Android Smartphones to Be Available in Canada Through Bell Mobility and Telus

SAN MATEO, Calif. (Oct. 15, 2014) — Sonim Technologies, maker of the world’s toughest mobile phones, announces the highly anticipated global launch of its first two ultra-rugged LTE Android smartphones. The Sonim XP7 will be available in Canada online and at select stores starting the week of Oct. 20 through Bell Mobility and TELUS. The Sonim XP6 will make its debut in November with TELUS.

Both smartphones are an essential component of Sonim’s mission critical solution for people in extreme environments. Dedicated hard buttons enhance worker productivity applications such as the Bell Push-to-talk and TELUS Link services. This feature cuts connection time and creates a safer and more productive work environment with near instant two-way communication at the touch of a button.

The Sonim XP7 and XP6 meet Sonim’s Rugged Performance Standards, which go far beyond basic MIL-Spec and IP certifications. An extra-loud speaker, noise cancellation, powerful battery and resistance to water and drops are just some of the features that provide peace of mind to enterprises and workers alike. Both devices also have a screen that can be viewed in direct sunlight – a critical feature for everyone working outdoors. In addition, the XP7 is outfitted with a large glove touch screen that can be easily used with dirty or wet work gloves, while the XP6 provides a numeric keypad in addition to a touch screen providing the best choice for workers familiar with Private Mobile Radio (PMR) devices.

A robust suite of industrial-grade accessories, such as remote speaker microphones, car kits and headphones, complete the solution.

Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim Technologies, expressed pride in launching Sonim’s first two Android 4.4 LTE ultra-rugged smartphones in Canada. Many of the smartphones’ features can be credited to Sonim’s current Canadian customers who work in some of the toughest physical environments in the world.

“Our unmatched three-year comprehensive warranty proves how much we believe in our product,” Plaschke said. “Individuals with extreme outdoor lifestyles choose to rely on Sonim ultra-rugged devices endorsed by professionals in the most demanding environments. In addition to being the optimal smartphone for those working in harsh conditions, the XP7 is also the perfect device for weekend warriors who play in ‘extreme’ environments. Adventurous explorers and thrill seekers now have access to a smartphone as fearless as they are. We expect extreme selfies to be taken to a whole other level.”
