Sonim lets geeks torture its XP2 Spirit handset at MWC

Abuse of the Sonim XP2 makes iPhones weep

By Shane McGlaun from Feb 17, 2010 @ 11:35 CST

Back at CES Sonim was showing off its X3 handset that it called indestructible. The folly of the company came when a BBC journalist broke the device on camera. Sonim is letting geeks do something similar at MWC, but this time the handset is the "nearly" unbreakable XP2 Spirit.

The XP2 is the firms first 3G handset and the torture test lets people at the show don a tool belt with wood, nails, sand paper and other implements to try and damage the phone. It's hard to tell in the picture here, but the guy in the image is hammering a nail into a block of wood using the phone.

The handset held up to all sorts of harsh work that would have killed any normal phone like a Blackberry or iPhone. The XP2 meets MIL 810G specifications for robustness.
