“Military-grade durability and an embedded LED flashlight in a rugged candy-bar form factor” is what the Kyocera DuraPlus cell phone has on tap. Think of it as the other kind of smartphone, the one that can stay alive through just about anything. Manufactured to meet Military Standard 810G, it’s resistant to dust, shock, vibration, temperature extremes, humidity, blowing rain and immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. And it has a flat base for freestanding operation. Options include a remote speakerphone/microphone, extended-life battery, and multi-unit charging dock. On the comms side, provided exclusively by Sprint in the US, instant one-to-one push-to-talk with any other Sprint Direct Connect subscriber nationwide, and a stack of other group voice and text features, including simultaneous talk to up to 200 other Direct Connect accounts. If you are rubbing your hands in anticipation, you know why you need one!
