Caterpillar Cat B15 Jelly Bean smartphone just launched
To be fair rugged smartphones have never been what you call ‘Good Looking’, but we will retract that quote right now because Bullitt Mobile Ltd., global licensee of Cat phones for Caterpillar Inc have just launched the new Cat B15 Jelly Bean 4.1 rugged smartphone that looks sexy and classy.
If you want style but yet still need that hard durable smartphone, then the not so rugged looking Cat B15 will be just for you, wow. MWC 2013 is well underway now and new smartphones, tablets and so much more we will be announced over the next few days, but for some reason the Cat B15 smartphone really caught our eye. We would really love to give you our Cat B15 review, but we will have to wait a little longer until we get our hands on it.
The Cat B15 has been designed for those that want a rugged device that is progressive and highly durable, you can see that the design is slick but yet can take on the bad elements that life could throw at it. It features things such as being submerged in a meter of water for 30 minutes, it also can take a 1.8 metre drop, the best feature is that you can use the touchscreen with wet fingers, with the added benefits of being scratch resistant and dustproof.
Phones Review would love to get to grips with the Cat B15 Jelly bean smartphone, just the look of it for a rugged phone turns us on. The iPhone 5 cannot handle the little of knocks and even the though other Jelly Bean smartphones are not that tough such as the Galaxy S3 why not design all phones to look like this.
The Cat B15 key features include a 1GHz dual core MediaTek MT6577 Cortex A9 processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS, 4-inch WVGA 480×800 LCD, Gorilla glass, Capacitive Multi-touch, wet finger tracking, 512 RAM, 4GB storage, 5.0 MP rear camera as well as a VGA on the front. The smartphone also features 720P recording at 30 fps, up to 9 hours talk time and up to 9.5 days standby time. The 125mm x 69.5mm x 14.95mm Cat B15 offers 3.5mm audio, microUSB, microSD card slot up to 32GB, and A-GPS.
This is a smartphone that can handle 20Âº C to + 55Âº C temperature operational range, 1.80M concrete drop test, as well as being IP67 waterproof to 1m for 30 min. The Cat B15 will available from major retailers from March 2013 priced at 329 euros / Â£299 GBP.
