The Rugby Smart is said to be completely waterproof, meaning you can fully submerge this baby for as long as 30 minutes in up to one meter of water. The actual phone is built to military-specification 810F standards which means that it should be able to handle quite a beating as well. Samsung has issued a press release detailing full specs of the Rugby Smart as well, so you can fully understand what this phone will survive.
The device is also said to launch with Android 2.3 as an operating system and come with a 3.7" WVGA Super AMOLED screen. In addition to that, the Rugby Smart will have 4GB of internal storage, 1,650mAh battery and a 1.3MP front-facing camera for video chat and a 5MP rear-facing auto focus camera with LED flash and 720p HD recording. As far as physical size is concerned, the Rugby Smart will measure 12.19mm thick and weigh 4.2 ounces. The device will be officially launched at AT&T on March 4th for a reasonable $100.
According to Senior Vice President of Devices for AT&T Jeff Bradley, "The Samsung Rugby Smart is perfect for active customers who need another level of durability with their smartphone."
