MoCo, developers of Mobilize, proud to be working with World Record Holders

September 27, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
The Sonim XP3300 Force has been confirmed by the Guinness Book of Record as the 'World's Toughest phone'.

The world record was set during a demonstration in The Netherlands earlier this month in which the device was dropped from a height of 25.29 meters (nearly 83 feet) onto a concrete surface without suffering operational damage. This beat the previous record of only 3.25 meters held by the JCB tough phone.

The record attempt was organised by manufacturers Sonim Technologies, who produce rugged water-submersible mobile handsets, specifically designed for workers in demanding and hazardous environments, such as construction, security guarding, oil, gas and chemical operations, utilities, transportation and logistics, forestry, agriculture and defence.

In order with strict Guinness World Records TM requirements, the record attempted was witnessed by independent judges who tested the phone by making a call and sending a text message following the drop.

"We wanted to stamp Sonim's name on the World Record, confirming that the Sonim XP3300 Force is the toughest phone in the world. Most mobile phones are drop-tested to a metre, which just isn't enough in extreme environments such as construction sites, oil rigs or in the forest,"
said Sonim CEO Bob Plaschke.

Previous tests made on the XP300 phone by leading technology magazine PCMag involved throwing it against brick walls and freezing it into a block of ice without loss of function.

MoCo, developers of Mobilize, are currently working closely with Sonim to launch an NFC (Near field Communication) version of their rugged mobile phone range. The new NFC rugged phone is currently in testing. NFC is a high frequency, wireless communication technology, allowing digital data to be exchanged between devices for identification and validation.

Mobilize from MoCo is a mobile workforce management and data capture system that is designed to use tried and tested handset/smartphone units to suit all environments, including sectors where the equipment is expected to take extreme abuse.

Mobilize is a trading name of MoCo Software Solutions Limited. The MoCo Group are leading experts in bespoke mobile solutions for blue chip customers, with over 25 years' experience of delivering and exceeding client expectations.
