There is a new phone that you don’t have to worry about when it is submersed in water. The new Sanyo Tahoe by Kyocera, a ruggedized handset that, despite its good looks, can withstand some of the harshest elements and 30 minutes of full immersion in water up to one meter (3.28 feet) deep.
The phone is covered with a non-slip Dura-Grip texture for a more solid grip and is 810G military standard certified which means it can stand up to dust, shock, vibration, extreme temperatures, blowing rain and water immersion. It has a 2-inch QVGA TFT internal display and 1-inch monochrome external display, packs 256 MB of internal memory, GPS, MP3 player, Stereo Bluetooth, microSD card slot and 2 megapixel camera with flash and camcorder. Taho supports autonomous GPS and Java Multitasking for third-party location-based services, also can restrict incoming and outgoing voice calls with password protection, disable both the camera and Web access, and lock the phone’s GPS functionality on so the phone’s location can always be tracked.
The Sanyo Tahoe is not having any special features. However, this Sanyo Tahoe has standard mobile phone features such as camera, internet browser, organizer, and other things. The best part that we need to consider when we want to buy this mobile phone is that there are no other mobile phone that is able to stand in extreme places like Sanyo Tahoe did.
Sanyo Tahoe is available beginning today (12/9) through direct-ship sales channels, including Sprint stores for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate.
