Motorola Jordan: waterproof ruggedness on an Android hanset

August 17, 2010 - Written By Chris Yackulic

Apparently rugged Android phones are all the rage right now.  Three weeks ago, Nextel/Boost released the i1, a rugged push-to-talk phone.  It has certifications claiming that you can drop it without much effect, get it all dusty, and even splash water on it.

There is a new game in town.  A phone from Motorola, code-named Jordan, will be launching on T-Mobile in November.  This one ups the ante a bit though.  It is waterproof to ten meters or 33 feet!  It also has an IP67 rating certification, which means it has super defenses against dust and corrosion.
