Motorola has just unveiled a brand new rugged phone, the Quantico, a clamshell with a very tough exterior. The shell of this device is made out of rubber, glass, chrome and mesh, plus you have to know that it meets military specification 810F, so it’s able to submerge in water (1m) for up to 30 minutes.



Moto Quantico comes with support for CDMA 1700/2100, 800/1900 EVDO connectivity, a 2.2 inch internal display (176 x 220 pixels resolution), a 1.6 inch external display (120 x 160 pixels resolution) and GPS. Stereo Bluetooth is also on the list, together with a 2.5mm headset jack, MMS, email, a 1.3 megapixel camera, a microSD card slot and a 1140 mAh battery.

The rugged phone will hit the US before the end of 2009 at an unannounced price and there’s yet another phone announced today, the Motorola Debut i856w, a version of the Debut i856 launched by Sprint and Boost a while ago. This handset is targeted towards a feminine public, it retails for $149.99 and it’s a pretty good looking iDEN phone.
