Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro

Announced along with their full holiday line up in New York not long ago, AT&T will be making the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro available to those looking for a rough and rugged device come October 21st. For $100 you'll get yourself a military grade, waterproof, shock resistant and dust proof device with Android 4.0, LTE connectivity, a 5MP camera and a 4-inch Super AMOLED display at 480 x 800. Sure, it won't win any beauty pageants but it's built to last. We've already gone hands-on with it and set up a nice gallery for you all in case you're thinking of picking this one up.

Why does every new Samsung have to be "galaxy" branded? Why not reserve the Galaxy name for the highest of quality devices?

I agree!

Sweet!

At least, that's what I'd be saying if it had 2012 specs under the hood.

Sigh.

Only the s is reserved for high quality phones. But there are different levels of the galaxy line (s, r, y and one other one I can't remember now.) So the galaxy is just for any Samsung phone right now that's android I believe.

If this were a Verizon offering, this would probably be my next device; it would at least be on the short list. Come on Casio / VZW, let's get an LTE "Commando 2" out here.
Edit: And I see on some other sites it (Commando successor) is at the FCC.

Galaxy was a class of phone. Now its become the new "ultra". Just a sales pitch. Sad.

This looks like a great phone for people who's small kids are constantly borrowing their phone and don't want a huge bulky case.
