    Has anyone seen this in India? Any idea if it would be available even?

    I am really interested in the Pro Talk and the SiteMaster2 -

    The Pro-Talk -

    Comes with Dual Sim, 8 Channel Radio, 2MP camera, GPS etc.

    Best bit - Waterproof, Dust proof, you can stand on it, drop it from any height, do anything, and it'll still work!

    The SiteMaster 3G

    This has been tested upto 1 Tonne Pressure, has a 5MP camera, and a torch, and all the other Toughphone features.

    The Site Master -

    The SiteMaster 2 is what I would like -

    There are more models by JCB, which can be seen here -

    Handset Range - JCB Toughphone


    All phones are Military spec, IP67 certified.

    IP certification stands for Ingress Protection rating. Its a measure of how much is a device resistant to foreign objects like dust, or water.

    So the 6 here indicates that these devices are completely Dust proof, no ingress.

    The 7 here indicates that it is water proof upto 1M, not beyond that. This is tested for a period of 30 Minutes.

    Other newer phones that meet this spec are Motorola Defy+, Sony Xperia Active.

    Dunno, whats so funny, but JCB Toughphones have been around for over 5-6 years as far as I remember drooling over them.

    This is overkill unless your day job is operating a JCB ..

    You can get rugged protectors for your day to day device.

    That is the whole USP of these phones. No nonsense, make and receive calls, Send and receive texts, dust proof, water proof, and you can stand on it, run a car over it, put it in front of hot steam, anything!
