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 Typo keyboard, which combines a protective case with a Bluetooth-connected QWERTY keyboard for iPhone devices, is being threatened by legal action from BlackBerry.
