i-mate may not have excelled itself in the gadget name-choosing department, but its newest 810-F handset offers advanced features in a rugged, waterproof shell that’s designed to withstand knocks and scrapes.
The hardware features a full QWERTY keyboard and 320×240 resolution impact-resistant touch screen, 3G connectivity and 2.2GB of storage. It runs Windows Mobile 6.1 for all your email, music, gaming and web surfing needs.
The 810-F can cope with pressure, heat, water, humidity and extreme shock thanks to it adhering to US military standards.
It comes with a limited lifetime warranty and the Secure-i-Q service that allows the handset to be remotely locked and wiped if it’s lost or stolen.
Exact availability and pricing is to be confirmed, but it will be shown off at Mobile World Congress next week so hopefully we’ll have more details about it then.
