DeWalt has launched an Android-powered smartphone meeting demand among trade professionals for handsets that will withstand the rigours of life on a construction site.
The £379 DeWalt MD501 is waterproof, dustproof and weatherproof and is built to withstand drops from two metres onto concrete, extreme temperatures and barometric pressures as well as being resistant to chemical spillages and vibrations.
The ability to handle two SIMs means that you can keep your personal and business mobile accounts separate; run two different contracts – one for calls and one for data.
The MD501 delivers hi speed 4G data functionality, rapid GPS location services and the versatility of NFC as a business and payment enabler.
The model also comes with built-in wireless charging which offers the convenience of charging and re-charging your smartphone without the need for connecting and disconnecting cables.
