4G RUGGED PHONES FOR TRADIES
Got one of those sleek wafer thin, S-something smartphones but you broke it? Or maybe out on the site you got caught in a rainstorm and S-something spat the dummy. Shame that the phone got dropped in the mud and you can’t wash it.
Good news. We have the solution.
At Investigate magazine, we needed rugged smartphones that could handle all weather extremes, could take a bit of outdoors rough and tumble, and which had battery life that lasted longer than sundown.
So we searched the world for something the big telcos don’t offer: rugged smartphones compatible with New Zealand and Australian networks. From the hundreds of models on offer, we found ones that worked where you work, and with expandable memory.
Guaranteed compatible on all mobile networks, these phones are also dual sim, meaning you can run two phone numbers on the one handset. Fantastic for travelling (keep your own number for incoming calls from home and twin it with a local prepay sim at your destination for cheap local data).
All of this for less than $500.
Take control of your communication needs and those of your team.
Ideal for tradies, subbies, forresters, farmers, trampers, hunters, fishers, truckers, cyclists
