Phone manufacturer Sonim now has its XP6 smartphone, a Google Android-powered device, available for AT&T, so subscribers have another choice when choosing ruggedized devices. The device has a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB internal storage, and push-to-talk support.




"When people talk about working smarter not harder, they think of the person working behind a desk, not the ones delivering a load of concrete or loading cargo on a flight," said Tom Burton, Sonim GM, in a statement. "Together with AT&T, we will change that paradigm so that employees in the field don't have to sacrifice the productivity enhancing services and feature benefits of smartphones due to their geographic location or work function."


The phone is available for $149.99 with a two-year contract, or $524.99 without a phone contract.


For workers out in the field, the XP6 is the latest option in a growing market of different phones designed to withstand some abuse.
