    Caterpillar, best known for their construction vehicles has released a new 'rugged' phone. Supposedly it can withstand dirt, drops and whatever other damage you can try on it. The specs are not high end, but people in the business of abusing their phones :p may want to check it out. It's called the Cat B15, and it will retail for $349.99 unsubsidized (without a contract). Here are some additional details on the device:

    I do like the industrial look of it. Looks like a tank :) Throw some better specs on it and I'd buy it

    That's pretty smart, I bet a lot of construction workers and the like could really take to a phone like this.

    Too bad it's pretty ancient spec wise.

    This Looks to be the nicest smartphone released by a company that isn't into the cellular market. I believe it was Porsche who came out with an awful smartphone as well as another company.
