Cat B100 Tough Phone Overview
There are times and places when the most important feature of a phone is toughness. If you work outside, or in a harsh environment then you may have found that other phones just don’t have the protection you need. The Cat B100 is different. Being dustproof, waterproof and able to withstand drops of up to 1.8 metres (6 feet) it could be the perfect phone for you.
The design of other tough phones tends to be bulky and unattractive. With the Cat B100 this is not the case, as the same design ideas seen with the B15 are also evident with this product. This means it has a robust and functional look, but one which is compact and easy to use. With the ergonomically designed keypad it is even possible to use the phone with gloves. This means you don’t have to remove them while you are working, or when it is chilly.
Being tough makes the Cat B100 the perfect phone when you are working in harsh environments. It is waterproof and dustproof with an IP67 rating making it resistant to the typical conditions you will encounter on a building site, or other similar working environments. It is also able to withstand more extreme temperatures than the average phone, as it can work perfectly in anything from -25 to 55°C.
The robust construction of the Cat B100, which includes a reinforced aluminium chassis with rubber surrounds, ensures it has the strength to withstand multiple drops of up to 1.8 metres (6 feet) onto concrete. As a result of the high protection capabilities of this phone it adheres to military standard 810G, giving you an idea of how tough it is.
Often you can be working in noisy environments which make it difficult to have a conversation. With a high-quality speaker and noise-cancelling dual mic you can have a proper conversation, no matter how noisy your surroundings, you will be able to get the message through.
While on site you need a phone which has sufficient battery power to get you though the day. Due to a high capacity battery being included, you have talk time of up to 10 hours and standby of an incredible 23 days,meaning you can be away from a charger for longer, and don’t have to charge your phone every night.
A 3 Mega Pixel camera provides you with basic photography capabilities, but sometimes that is all you need. The same is the case for the integrated GPS with Google Maps, as it could just help you out when you need to get to an important job.
