Samsung Galaxy XCover official for the UK

It's official – the tough phone is set to roll around in British mud too

A few days ago we could only hope that the Samsung Galaxy XCover would be heading our way so that we could beat it up and test its tough credentials. And Sammy has put us out of our misery already: the official line is that the waterproofed wonder, running Android 2.3 Gingerbread, will reach the UK later this year. Just enough time for us to dust off our smartphone-torture gear and submit it to a violent series of tests to check its dirt and scratch resistant credentials and underwater calling abilities. The cost still eludes us, but that's a story for another day.
