NEC Terrain

AT&T today announced an ultra-rugged Android smartphone with the added capability of Push-to-Talk in the NEC Terrain. It'll be available June 21 through AT&T Business Solutions and online for $99 on a two-year contract.

The NEC Terrain has a 3.1-inch display (with Gorilla Glass) and full physical QWERTY keyboard. It's powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor at 1.5 GHz and runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It's got a 5-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3MP camera out front. 

The Terrain is water-resistant and dustproof and exceeds the MIL-810G spec for shock, AT&T says. And the dedicated push-to-talk button makes communication that much faster.

Lose the PTT and keyboard, add a hundred bucks to the price, and viola GS4 Active.

Thank you, thank you. I know.

From the DARK AC App!

ICS? Really?
And somehow I don't see physical keyboards as being more rugged and reliable than a gorilla glass screen (especially if you can put a full coverage self healing skin on it).

It's more about those with work gloves that aren't fitting for touchscreen keyboards.

I agree with you on the ICS rant though. This thing will NEVER see an OS upgrade, nor will it bring enough interest in the community to make custom ROMs. Would it kill manufacturers to ship these devices with the latest software available so they aren't obsolete even before they are announced?!

Pretty cool, put on prepaid and you have a winner.

Normally I don't comment on looks, but that is one ugly a** phone lol.
I guess it's good for those one or two people left who still yearn for physical keyboards lol.

Just not my cup of tea I guess! I say get the phone you want and toss one of them life cases on it or an OtterBox case.

On screen navigation buttins on a 3.1in screen. I bet this aren't hard to press or anything.

It's these types of phones that give Android a bad name. At least sell it with Jelly Bean and it wouldn't be so bad.

I agree and this is what keeps android fragmented. This should have been released with 4.1.2 at the least with no exceptions.

If t only he BlackBerry Q10 have looked more like this phone. Stupid square screen.
