verykool's Very Cool Phones Can Easily Withstand Ruggedized Demands

verykool recently showed off some of its new rugged line of phones and explained to TMC what makes them so resilient.

During an interview at the CTIA 2013 held in Las Vegas, InfoSonics Corporation President and CEO, Joseph Ram, told TMC CEO Rich Tehrani how the company sells basic phones as well as feature-rich smartphones.

“Our product range is quite wide,” Ram said.

The company’s phones are mostly sold under the verykool brand. The parent company is InfoSonics Corp. The company sells its phones to original equipment manufacturers, carriers and distributors in Latin America and in the Asia-Pacific region with its verykool brand and through private label brands.

When it comes to the new ruggedized smartphones, they can be taken to the beach, on a camping trip or even out on a boat or yacht.

They are sleek, ergonomic, have many features, and are relatively light.

These new ruggedized phones also have Ingress protection. That means they are dustproof, shockproof and waterproof based on an industry standard that is widely recognized. In fact, the phone can be in the water for a half-hour and still work.

Many have Gorilla Glass, which is unbreakable. It is an alkali-aluminosilicate glass made by Corning. One phone model has a second covering over the SIM card and battery – as an added layer of protection.

One example of the new ruggedized phones is the RS75 Smartphone. “We designed the RS75 with the everyday consumer or professional in mind,” Ram said in a company statement. “We crafted a phone that is ruggedized and durable, yet slim and elegant in its design.  It is ideal for the buyer who is searching for an affordable smartphone that can survive the daily elements of suburban life or outdoor settings.”
