The Samsung Rugby II is available through TELUS, Bell and Rogers all on various pricing models. This is the latest rugged device to land in Canada and it meets military specs that can apparently resist shock, hot temperatures, water and dust. We did a quick overview of the hardware as it comes with a 1.3-inch external display and a 2.2-inch internal display (resolution of 240×320), GPS, Dual external speakers, holds up to 32GB with a microSD card, 2 megapixel camera and has overall dimensions are 10.2 x 5.2 x 2.2 cm and weighs surprisingly light at 100 grams.
In the past we’ve tested rugged devices by throwing them, dipping them in water and hitting it with a hammer. This time around we thought we’d leave it up to you to tell us how to test the durability of the Rugby II out. if you’re in the field working in intense locations you want a device that will last and take a few hits. Leave your comments below and tell us what situations you want us to demonstrate and we’ll report back with a video.
