TORONTO, June 25, 2013 /CNW/ - Sonim Technologies, the makers of the world's 
toughest phones, and Bell today announced the exclusive Canadian availability 
of three new ultra-rugged Push-to-Talk (PTT) phones on Canada's best PTT 
network− the Sonim XP5560 BOLT 2, the Sonim XP5560 BOLT 2 IS, and the Sonim 
XP1520 BOLT SL. 
"Thanks to new safety features and Intrinsically Safe certification, Sonim's 
new BOLT line-up, already recognized as the toughest available anywhere, now 
protect workers themselves," said Bob Plaschke, CEO of Sonim Technologies. 
"With this launch, Sonim and Bell continue to offer Canadians a superior PTT 
Certified Intrinsically Safe by the Canadian Standards Association, the XP5560 
BOLT 2 IS will not emit any excess heat or sparks that can cause an explosion, 
making it suitable for the most hazardous environments such as power plants or 
oil and gas facilities where regular mobile devices are prohibited. 
Both the XP5560 BOLT 2 and XP5560 BOLT 2 IS also offer a Lone Worker safety 
solution that keeps customers connected to an emergency response centre at all 
times via a dedicated red button on the side of the device. When pushed, the 
user's GPS position is sent to the centre, and a communication link is 
automatically established with first responders. Other safety features include 
specialized alerts, enhanced monitoring, 'man-down' detection and advanced GPS 
"When safety, reliability and instant communications are your primary 
requirements for a mobile phone, you need to carry a BOLT operating on 
Canada's best PTT network," said Wade Oosterman, President of Bell Mobility 
and Residential Services, and Chief Brand Officer at Bell. "With the powerful 
new safety features uniquely available on the world's toughest phones from 
Sonim, coupled with the unmatched coverage and reliability of Bell's national 
PTT network, instant communications just got better." 
The expanded line-up of new Sonim BOLT phones will be accompanied by over 40 
accessories and 10 new application vendors to meet the communications needs of 
Bell customers working in the most challenging environments, including 
construction, oil and gas, mining, transportation, security, facilities 
management and utilities.
