The latest Samsung to be announced – the XCover – is a trade handset like the Motorola Defy that can take all the beatings of a hard day’s work. It will survive under water for half an hour and shrugs off knocks and dirt with ease. It even packs in impressive specs for a tough phone – Android 2.3, a 3.2MP snapper with LED flash, and a 3.6in scratch resistant screen.
It’s due out in October but whether that’s in the UK is unclear, as is pricing. Watch this mucky space.
