Caterpillar CAT B15 Rugged Smartphone Will Go Places You Can’t

 |  |  |  |  March 2, 2013


How many times have you dropped your smartphone? I’ve dropped mine plenty of times, especially when I’m tired. Thankfully, I use a case that helps alleviate any damage that my phone might incur. That being said, check out this über-rugged Android smartphone from Caterpillar – designed to be durable right out o the box.

The Caterpillar CAT B15 is the successor of last year’s CAT B10. It’s built to outlast you. Its case combines aluminum and rubber so that the phone can survive drops as high as 5.9 feet onto hard surfaces. It can also stay immersed in 3.3 feet of water for 30 minutes before things go wrong. Plus, it can withstand temperatures from -4°F to 122°F.

The CAT B15 runs a super-clean, stock version of Android Jelly Bean (4.1.2), has a 4-inch WVGA screen, dual-core 1GHz Cortex A9 processor, 512 MB of RAM, and a 5 MP camera. It will release in the UK and Europe later this month for £299/€299 (~$454 USD). There’s no word yet on pricing or a release date for other countries.
