Energizer, in collaborazione con Avenir Telecom, presenta la sua linea di dispositivi rugged Hard Case: si tratta di due modelli per le condizioni estreme, che resistono ad impatti, acqua e polvere.
Il primo dei due è un feature phone chiamato Energy 200: presenta certificazione IP 67 ed è testato per resistere a cadute fino a 2 metri di altezza. Inoltre, è dual SIM e vanta (prevedibilmente) un’ottima autonomia: fino a 290 ore in standby e 20 ore di conversazione.
Per quanto riguarda il modello smart della famiglia, si chiama Energy 500 ed è basato su Android 4.4 KitKat. Le caratteristiche di questo dispositivo includono un display HD da 5″, processore quad-core da 1,3 GHz e fotocamere da 13 e 5 megapixel. La batteria è da 3.000 mAh e dovrebbe garantire fino a 500 ore di standby e 19 ore in chiamata; ovviamente, non mancano le certificazioni testimoniano la sua natura rugged, tra cui la IP68, che ci ricorda che Energy 500 può sopravvivere fino a mezz’ora di immersione ad una profondità di 2 metri.
Energy 200 e Energy 500 sono già in vendita in Italia al prezzo (rispettivamente) di circa 100€ e circa 400€: di seguito il comunicato stampa (in inglese).
