At&t Announces the Samsung Galaxy Rugby Pro

The Samsung Rugby line of devices has come a long way. The line of devices is slowly becoming similar to the success story of the RAZR line from Motorola. Sure, it’s not quite as popular and maybe a bit less known, but Samsung is taking the Rugby to the boundaries of solid, durable phones. Early on the handsets were rugged flip phones with basic functionality. But with the smart phone revolution completely underway it looks like Samsung is reimagining the Rugby with an Android smart phone twist! Recently we the world, or mainly At&t customers were introduced to the Rugby Smart in the line ups first introduction into the “smart” tier of devices. A new Rugby is about to hit the scene and it just keeps getting better…as it should!

The last Rugby to hit the market was the Samsung Rugby Smart. The device is super durable and running Android. The new Samsung Galaxy Rugby gets a bit of a name change, keeps the smart and gets a few upgrades. The Samsung Rugby Pro as it’s called is an awesome update to the already pretty cool phone. The device as its kin folk is dust proof, shock resistant and water proof up to one meter for up to 30 minutes. With these qualities the new Rugby Pro as its predecessors it meets military grade 810g specifications durability specs. As for the rest of the details the Rugby Pro starts with a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED touch screen that will give its end users perfect seamless access to the likes of Android 4.0. Of course the biggest detail to the Rugby Pro is its At&t 4G LTE connection, super fast! Around back of the Rugby Pro is a more than capable 5 mega pixel shooter that can easily record video in 720p HD resolution. Unfortunately the buck on specifications stops here. For now At&t is keeping the wraps on full specs, but hopefully its Pro nomenclature is suggesting a worthy upgrade from its earlier Galaxy Rugby release. In a small pitch toward business end users the device sports “full device encryption and EAS corporate email support”. It will also come packing in “Enhanced Push-to-Talk functionality”, this of course will only become active when the service is launched by the carrier.
