Motorola and Verizon today announced the Motorola Barrage. An IPX7 water ingress protection model withstanding 30 minutes submerged in one meter of water
Esato News

It is not often we see a new rough phone announced these days. Most new releases are designer deviced with touch screens.

The Nokia 5210 and Ericsson R310 are classics in this segment but these models are no longer available. It has been tough times for Motorolas mobile division lately. Nice to see them back in business again. I can't recall seing a rough clamshell before. The Barrage might be the first.

The Barrage specifications won't blow you out of your chair. But that is not the reason why you would buy this phone anyway.

This rugged device sports a tough-as-nails exterior. Designed to be submersible for up to 30 minutes in one meter of water, it is constructed from chrome, glass, mesh and rubber – protecting it against blowing rain, humidity, solar radiation, high and low temperatures, blowing dust, salt fog, altitude, shock, vibration and transit drop.

Great phone if you are a sailor. btw there are a lot of waterdamaged phones around. I think it's a great idea, and to ugly too.

Specs are not very important for these phones, all rugged phones have rather poor specs.
