CAT Made an Unbreakable Phone. Yeah, That CAT.

Forklifts and cranes are not enough, apparently

It takes a dinging and keeps on ringing?

That slogan doesn’t have quite the same, wait for it, ring to it as the one that Timex entrenched into pop culture, but, when you’re a brand like Caterpillar, you don’t need cute catch phrases.

Your products, like the heavy-duty Cat S41 Android smartphone, do all of your talking for ya.

With a layer of Gorilla Glass 5 protecting its 5-inch HD display, the Cat has about 40 hours of talk time when charged (and can charge other devices) and can last for an hour underwater. (Also, once underwater, the phone’s screen and 13-megapixel rear camera function normally.)

All that power is derived from the Cat S41’s massive 5,000 mAh battery and 2.3GHz processor, and the phone has a good chunk of memory — 3GB of RAM and 32GB of storage. If you’d like, you can also drop it on concrete from six feet up and be confident that it’ll work just fine.

Available any day now, the phone is priced at $450. Register your interest in scoring one here.
