Have you ever wondered just how tough rugged products are? I have, and I decided to see just how far I could push Motorola's newest rugged handset, the VA76r Tundra. Find out if it can survive the heat of a blowtorch.
Have you ever wondered just how tough rugged products are? I have, and I decided to see just how far I could push Motorola's newest rugged handset, the VA76r Tundra. Find out if it can survive the heat of a blowtorch.Motorola may be facing hard times, but it still knows how to make rugged equipment that can take a beating and get the job done at the end of the day.
Motorola's VA76r Tundra is a push-to-talk phone for AT&T's network that offers the convenience of walkie-talkie functions with the features of a regular flip phone.
It has a 2-megapixel camera that also captures video, a music player, a capable 3G Web browser, and Bluetooth, and it supports microSD cards for storing media.
Phone calls sounded great, and the Tundra was a champ at remaining connected to AT&T's 3G network all over the place.
All of that is ancillary to the fact that it's designed for the rough-and-tumble life in the field.
Here's a list of the abuses I put the Tundra through:
I kicked it.
I threw it.
I stood on it.
I mashed it.
I drove over it.
I buried it in snow.
I hit it with a hammer.
I hit it with a wrench.
I heated it with a blowtorch.
I chilled it to 0 degrees F.
I held it under running water.
Can your workforce do better?
