The extra-tough Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE was launched in Canada through TELUS today for $49 on a three-year contract. It's fairly entry-level, but if you're primarily concerned about having a phone that can take a beating, specs won't really matter. 

  • 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display (480 x 800)
  • 1.5 GHz dual-core processor
  • Android 4.0 (ICS)
  • 4G LTE smartphone
  • 1850 mAh battery
  • Built to military specifications (810g)
  • Waterproof, shock resistant and dust proof
  • Submersible in 1 meter of water for up to 30 minutes
  • 5-megapixel rear-facing camera
  • Bluetooth v4.0

We got our hands on the version coming to AT&T, if you want a closer look. Any rough-and-tumble Canadians can pick up the Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE from the TELUS online store over here. Any takers?

Samsung Galaxy Rugby LTE launched on TELUS

it's a shame most people aren't hounding after phones that can go anywhere and do anything.

after having a camera that is waterproof and shock resistant for years (which I recently upgraded this summer), I absolutely love that I can take my camera with me anywhere, not worry about anything, and know it's going to keep shooting. It's great not having to think about it.

I can't wait till they can package phones like the nexus line in at the very least water proof housings. talk about liberating for active people who love technology. drop resistant will be nice, but I'd love to not have to worry about a little rain, or a push into my friends pool ruining my $500 phone.

I guess we'll have to wait a bit for it.
