AT&T Adds 3 New Sonim Devices to its Enhanced Push-to-Talk Portfolio

AT&T has added to its Enhanced Push-to-Talk portfolio with three new rugged mobile devices from Sonim Technologies, a provider of mobile phones designed specifically for workers in challenging outdoor and industrial environments. Specifically, the carrier now offers the Sonim XP1520 BOLT SL, the XP5560 BOLT and the XP5560 BOLT IS.

Back in June, Canadian wireless carrier Bell secured exclusive Canadian availability of the Sonim XP1520 BOLT SL, in addition to the XP5560 BOLT 2 and the XP5560 BOLT 2 IS.

The Sonim XP1520 BOLT SL is ruggedly built and as such can handle use in tougher environments, making it an ideal choice for industries including construction, transportation, manufacturing and agriculture. Indeed, this device can be dropped onto concrete from heights up to six feet and submerged in up to six feet of water for a period of 30 minutes and still work normally.

Sonim even claims that the XP1520 BOLT SL can handle being run over with a pickup truck. The company has expressed its confidence in the durability of this device by backing it with a comprehensive three-year warranty that covers accidental damage.

Likewise, both the XP5560 BOLT and BOLT IS are covered with the same three-year warranty.

Meanwhile, the BOLT comes in two varieties, one of which sports a two megapixel camera, while the other does not, making it suitable for use in high-security environments. Both varieties offer up to 10 hours of talk/push-to-talk time.

Finally, the XP5560 BOLT IS offers all the features of the standard BOLT, but with the addition of Intrinsically Safe certification, allowing it to support those that work in environments with flammable gases or dust.

"We help businesses that need a fast and simple way of communicating with their workers," said Mike Troiano, vice president of Advanced Mobility Solutions at AT&T Business Solutions, in a statement. "AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk can conveniently connect people from one job site to another with a single touch of a button."
