Samsung Solid lands on O2 PAYG

With the JCB Toughphone already poking from the back pockets of chat-happy builders, we're spoilt for choice when it comes to tough-as-old-boots mobiles this year. And the latest to nut bouncers for fun is the Samsung Solid.

Feature-rich it isn't, with a lowly VGA camera and dinky screen, but it covers the Bluetooth and WAP basics and gets an FM radio and torch thrown in for fun.

As befitting its beefcake name it's endowed with anti-shock protection and is water- and dust-resistant – just the thing for a building site or beach. Or even a building site on a beach.

The PAYG hardman is out now on O2 for a measly 60 notes, or free on contract. Rude not to really.
