The Rugged Phone Meets Technology

The Nokia 5140 has taken the lead in making a rugged phone that active men and women will adore.  This phone boasts so many new features, it makes me want to get one just...well, to have it before anyone else.

The built-in digital camera can be found in most phones but not the lovely integrated digital compass.  Now, I'm an active person so this really made me look twice at this phone.  The sport and leisure appearance is certainly a plus.  They boast that the Xpress-on shells provide protection against splashes and dust and there is an inner module that resists splashes and dust.

The phone supports up to 4096 colors, has new animated active menu graphics, and runs on a 27.3x27.3 mm display.  With push to talk capability (network dependent) you can keep in touch with others using Voice over IP services. 

Other active user features:

  • Stereo FM radio
  • Flashlight
  • Thermometer
  • Stopwatch
  • Countdown timer
  • Decibel meter
  • Personal shortcuts
  • Alarm clock

Many other features are included but these seemed to be the "key" features an active person would take advantage of while hiking, camping or 4x4ing out in the wilderness with their handy cellphone.

Tons of storage space and these extra rugged features make this a good choice for sportsmen and women around the world.  GSM/Tri-band makes it more handy and it automatically switches between bands.

Take a look at the full details on the Nokia site.

    ummm … i saw this phone on this site, looked it up … sounded great and all. so after buying it, man do i regret it. build quality is weak and plastic-like. major disappointment.
