Nokia Launches "Most Rugged Handset to Date"

Entirely sealed to protect its guts from harmful materials like dust, sand and water, Nokia is touting this phone as the perfect phone for beach goers, construction workers and clumsy people who tend to drop their phone quite a bit.

Aside from being IP54-certified (which means yes, dust might find its way in there; but even if it does, it won’t be enough to turn your phone into Nokia’s most rugged paperweight to date), the 3720 packs a 2.2-inch display, a 2 megapixel camera, an LED flashlight, an FM radio, triband EDGE, microSD expansion (1 GB included) and Bluetooth. Availability is expected before the end of the summer at €125 (roughly $175).

I have to say, with all the smartphone releases lately, it’s nice to see a phone that I wouldn’t be afraid to drop. What’s the most durable phone you’ve ever owned? Let us know in the comments below!
