For those extreme conditions

 

Today Samsung announced its latest phone aimed at people who reside, or at least venture into some more extreme environments.

The model is codenamed B2100 Xplorer and it's built to be shock and vibration proof, has dust, water and extreme temperatures protection, whether it's extreme high or low ones. Furthermore, you can hold this phone up to one meter under water for 30 minutes.

Its dimensions are 113mm x 49mm x 17mm, and it weighs in at 103 grams. It comes with a 1.8-inch screen and a 1.3 Megapixel camera for photos and video. This phone comes with quite a loud speaker, noise reduction, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, FM radio, MP3 player, LED lamp as well as the microSD slot. The phone runs on quad-band GSM/EDGE frequencies.

Samsung didn't disclose a fixed launch and availability date, but we do know that it should hit EU sometime in April. We saw it on this year's CeBIT, where it was showcased in quite an unusual but self-explanatory case, as you can see from the picture below.
