Waterproof phone with camera

My mate has just got one of these;

Samsung B2100

A good spec and not a bad price, no gps though, however when I had gps on my Nokia 5140 it was pants. If my mates turns out to be ok I'll get one and post stuff.

Just been reading up on the Land Rover phone - it really is as tough as they claim - the only way they managed to break it was to drive a forklift over it!!!

Oh and it's got GPS and is very waterproof - sounds ideal for RIBs!!!

apparently available to order though I haven't tried.

I have heard some questionable reliability reports on the Sonim XP1, so I don't know what the XP3 models will be like?

Will be interesting to see if Sonim can market it themselves here in a sim free form, still looks like a cracking phone even on contract from tesco.

The Sonim gurantee in the US is a no-questions-asked-replacement for 3 years. This sounds like they are pretty confident most of the phone wil last foe 3 years.
