Sonim Technologies Announces XP6 LTE Android Smartphone in United States

Sonim Technologies announced that AT&T will be the first carrier in the United States to offer its ultra-rugged model XP6 LTE Android smartphone starting November 24, 2014. The Sonim XP6 is available for $0 down at $17.50 per month on AT&T Next 24 agreement; $0 down at $21.88 on AT&T Next 18 agreement; $0 down at $26.25 on AT&T Next 12 agreement; $149.99 with a standard two-year contract; or $524.99 with no commitment. It is available to business and government customers for $99.99 with AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk (EPTT) and a two-year contract. The Sonim XP6 is designed to increase productivity by combining the advanced applications and services available on smartphones with the ease of a feature phone and the ability to withstand harsh work environments. Designed to work with AT&T EPTT service, this ultra-rugged smartphone offers seamless two-way communication on AT&T's 4G LTE network, the nation's most reliable network, covering more than 300 million Americans, 3 or over Wi-Fi. With a powerful 4800mAh battery, the Sonim XP6 also offers usage and standby time. The device is certified MIL-STD 810G and rated IP68 for water immersion and IP69 for water spray. For those really tough job sites, Sonim has created 12 Rugged Performance Standards, which surpass basic MIL-Spec and IP certifications. The device can withstand drops from higher distances, impact from concrete floors; it can survive a bath in the mud, a dousing of antifreeze, and the crushing force from a ton of metric pressure and more. The touch screen display was made to be clearly viewed outdoors in direct sunlight and survive an impact force of two joules. Combined with a numeric keypad, advanced audio capabilities, including an extra loud 103db speaker and noise cancellation, the Sonim XP6 is the smart choice for workers using two-way radio devices, where high-quality, timely communications is imperative. XP6 also has a robust suite of accessories, such as remote speaker microphones, car kits and headphones, and a unique magnetic charging cable, designed for gloved users to easily insert and remove the cable from the device. The Sonim XP6 is backed by the industry's only 3-Year comprehensive warranty. It is a premier choice for companies who value the speed and simplicity of a two-way radio but need workers to communicate beyond that platform to other mobile phone users and to interact with reporting and geo-tracking applications in one device. With safety becoming more of an issue throughout the country, the need for national government agencies, local authorities and first responders to receive high-quality, consistent and timely communication services is imperative-often the difference between life and death. The XP6 offers mobile connections over LTE and Wi-Fi networks. This will further strengthen the communications required among agencies in the face of disasters and other emergency situations.

This feature cuts connection time and creates a safer and more productive work environment with near instant two-way communication at the touch of a button. The Sonim XP7 and XP6 meet Sonim's Rugged Performance Standards, which go far beyond basic MIL-Spec and IP certifications.
