There’s no doubting the CAT B100 is a tough looking phone. It’s the kind of phone that needs to be described by someone with a voice rather like James Earl Jones or Isaac Hayes. The promotional video shows a chap on a building site and another guy on a motorbike delivering emergency supplies to a hospital. Apparently that’s the target market.

Mark Bridge takes an in-depth look at the CAT B100 rugged phone from Bullitt Mobile.
The CAT B100 is designed to withstand rather more than everyday bumps and knocks - which is why Mark drops his mobile phone on the pavement, submerges it in his washing-up bowl and shuts it in the freezer.
UK-based mobile manufacturer Kazam, which was launched last year by two former HTC executives, has announced three new phone ranges.
These include the company’s first 4G LTE smartphone and five ‘easy to use’ feature phones.
Bullitt Mobile, which produces tough mobile phones and accessories under the Cat brand, has revealed the rugged Cat B100 handset at this year’s International CES show in the USA.
The B100 is a one-piece feature phone that’s protected to IP67 (dust/water) and Military Standard 810G. It has larger buttons that can be used when wearing gloves, a noise-cancelling microphone and up to 10 hours talk time.
The last couple of months have been a busy time for easy-to-use mobile phone manufacturer Doro.
The Swedish company is now adding High-Definition Voice technology to its PhoneEasy 621 and PhoneEasy 622 handsets.
