Tough, Rugged and Just Awesome, The Sonim XP1300 Core Phone

The carriers out there claim to have rugged phones, but they’ve got nothing on these phones from Sonim. These things are above Military specs and of course Mil-Spec certified for ruggedness. Once upon a time I worked dirty jobs, still do from time to time, but I always had a problem with my phones and keeping them clean and scratch free and I always worried I’d break them. I went so far as to have a cheap flip phones that I would carry to swap out the sim card from my more expensive smartphone so I wouldn’t damage it. I need one of these. If you saw the first episode of the new season of Chuck then you saw him using a Sonim, hey if he can use one so can I!

Perfect for those in need of a mobile phone they can take anywhere, the CORE’s ability to adapt to different environments will give outdoor workers the confidence they require to take their phone beyond urban borders. "The XP1300 CORE, our first product built on our 4th generation rugged platform, raises the toughness stakes once again. It’ll be the #1 choice for construction crews, farmers, dock workers and others in tough work environments," said Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim Technologies. 

Available worldwide at the beginning of November, the XP1300 CORE is scratch and water resistant, as well as dust proof, keeping workers connected no matter what their surroundings are. Other key features include noise cancellation, waterproof connectors and an improved display protected by Gorilla Glass®. The advanced features of the XP1300 CORE are a direct result of Sonim’s experience of shipping approximately a half a million phones over the past four years into the world’s most demanding work environments.


Versatile and durable, the XP1300 CORE is designed to withstand the most strenuous conditions, meeting US MIL-810G certification for salt, fog, humidity, transport shock, and thermal shock. Additionally, Sonim has added a fiberglass mix to the phone’s housing plus a Gorilla Glass® lens to give users the confidence to truly take it anywhere.


The XP1300 CORE adapts to the worker’s environment. The noise-cancelling microphone keeps calls clear in the presence of loud machinery and the larger, higher resolution display offers outstanding visibility in outdoor conditions.
