Phoenix Fire Department to Use Sonim Technologies XP7 Smartphones for Big Game Emergency Preparedness

Sonim Technologies announced that firefighters from the Phoenix Fire Department will use the company's ultra-rugged XP7 LTE Android smartphones for emergency preparedness in their deployment around Sunday's Big Game in downtown Phoenix. Sonim said it is supplying XP7 Band Class 14-enabled smartphones to the Phoenix Fire Department for a 70-day operational testing program that begins Sunday, when firefighters will use the Sonim devices as a CAD interoperability solution paired with a custom Android application. With this solution, firefighters will be able to have a more visual perspective of events happening in real-time. Sonim mobile phones are built specifically to withstand the rigors faced by men and women in public safety, as well as those who work in industries such as construction, oil and gas, logging, maritime and agriculture, and those serving in the military. The XP7 meets Sonim's Rugged Performance Standards (RPS), which go far beyond basic MIL-Spec and IP certifications. Standard features include an extra-loud speaker, noise cancellation, the powerful battery, resistance to submersion in water, an ability to withstand drops onto concrete surfaces and ease of use with dirty or wet work gloves.

Sonim Technologies Launches Ultra-Rugged Developer Network, a Superior Platform for Developers to Enhance the Reliability and Usability of Apps in Extreme Work Environments

Sonim Technologies launched its Ultra-Rugged Developer Network, a superior platform for developers to enhance the reliability and usability of apps in extreme work environments. The platform is targeted at app developers who focus on rugged-workforce productivity and safety. It offers Sonim's Sentrify Android API extensions on the company's recently launched XP6 and XP7 models, the most open and programmable ultra-rugged LTE Android smartphones. Sentrify APIs available to developers from the Sonim Ultra-Rugged Developer Network provide the following capabilities: Do not uninstall an app; Do not disable GPS; Auto restart after crash; and Do not force quit an app. Additional APIs will also be available to control the Yellow Application Key as well as for Sonim's proprietary XPand Interface. The XP6 and XP7 are essential components of Sonim's solution for people who work in extreme environments. Both devices come equipped with dedicated hard buttons that enhance worker productivity. These include push-to-talk, a feature that cuts connection time and creates a safer and more productive work environment with near instant two-way communication at the touch of a button. The Sonim XP6 and XP7 meet Sonim's Rugged Performance Standards, achieving IP68 and IP69 ratings and going far beyond MIL-SPEC certifications. Smartphone features that provide peace of mind to enterprises and their workers include an extra-loud speaker up to 103 decibels, which is significantly louder than the Samsung Galaxy S5 at 66 decibels; noise cancellation; a powerful 4,800 mAh battery that's more than twice as big as an iPhone 6 battery; the ability to withstand a drop of 6.5 feet onto concrete and being submerged in 6.5 feet of water for up to 30 minutes. Both devices also have a screen that can be viewed in direct sunlight, a critical feature for everyone working outdoors. In addition, the XP7 is outfitted with a large-glove touch screen that can be used easily with dirty or wet work gloves. The XP6 provides a numeric keypad in addition to a touch screen providing the best choice for workers familiar with Land Mobile Radio (LMR) devices. A robust suite of industrial-grade accessories, such as remote speaker microphones, car kits and headphones, complete the solution.

Sonim Technologies Announces XP6 LTE Android Smartphone in United States

Sonim Technologies announced that AT&T will be the first carrier in the United States to offer its ultra-rugged model XP6 LTE Android smartphone starting November 24, 2014. The Sonim XP6 is available for $0 down at $17.50 per month on AT&T Next 24 agreement; $0 down at $21.88 on AT&T Next 18 agreement; $0 down at $26.25 on AT&T Next 12 agreement; $149.99 with a standard two-year contract; or $524.99 with no commitment. It is available to business and government customers for $99.99 with AT&T Enhanced Push-to-Talk (EPTT) and a two-year contract. The Sonim XP6 is designed to increase productivity by combining the advanced applications and services available on smartphones with the ease of a feature phone and the ability to withstand harsh work environments. Designed to work with AT&T EPTT service, this ultra-rugged smartphone offers seamless two-way communication on AT&T's 4G LTE network, the nation's most reliable network, covering more than 300 million Americans, 3 or over Wi-Fi. With a powerful 4800mAh battery, the Sonim XP6 also offers usage and standby time. The device is certified MIL-STD 810G and rated IP68 for water immersion and IP69 for water spray. For those really tough job sites, Sonim has created 12 Rugged Performance Standards, which surpass basic MIL-Spec and IP certifications. The device can withstand drops from higher distances, impact from concrete floors; it can survive a bath in the mud, a dousing of antifreeze, and the crushing force from a ton of metric pressure and more. The touch screen display was made to be clearly viewed outdoors in direct sunlight and survive an impact force of two joules. Combined with a numeric keypad, advanced audio capabilities, including an extra loud 103db speaker and noise cancellation, the Sonim XP6 is the smart choice for workers using two-way radio devices, where high-quality, timely communications is imperative. XP6 also has a robust suite of accessories, such as remote speaker microphones, car kits and headphones, and a unique magnetic charging cable, designed for gloved users to easily insert and remove the cable from the device. The Sonim XP6 is backed by the industry's only 3-Year comprehensive warranty. It is a premier choice for companies who value the speed and simplicity of a two-way radio but need workers to communicate beyond that platform to other mobile phone users and to interact with reporting and geo-tracking applications in one device. With safety becoming more of an issue throughout the country, the need for national government agencies, local authorities and first responders to receive high-quality, consistent and timely communication services is imperative-often the difference between life and death. The XP6 offers mobile connections over LTE and Wi-Fi networks. This will further strengthen the communications required among agencies in the face of disasters and other emergency situations.
