Be Rugged (and Boring) with Samsung B2100 Xplorer


When you find yourself surrounded by all sorts of hazards, having a reliable cell phone can mean the difference between life and death. If you want to save your life and limb, you may have to make some sacrifices in the style department and that is exactly the case today.

Hitting up the rough and tumble end of the mobile phone market is the newly revealed Samsung B2100 Xplorer. You won’t get wowed by a glorious OLED touchscreen display or a highly advanced mobile web browser, but you do get a phone that can take a licking and keep on ticking.

Boasting a series of outdoor-friendly features, “robust durability,” and what appears to be a rubberized grip, the Samsung B2100 comes with quad-band GSM/EDGE, a 1.8-inch TFT (120×160) display, Bluetooth 2.1 with A2DP, 1.3 megapixel camera, 7MB internal memory, and a microSD expansion slot. There is a touch of entertainment here too with the FM radio and music player.

If you’re going to be in a rougher environment, you may want to consider something like this Samsung Xplorer. Look for the B2100 to ship next month at a price yet to be determined.
