Overview of JCB Toughphone Sitemaster2
Not all phone users work or operate in conditions that favour the modern mobile. If you’re a tradesman or equivalent it is quite likely that your phone is sometimes exposed to the elements and may be bearing the scars of some knocks and scrapes, unless you are very good at protecting it?!
The JCB Toughphone Sitemaster2 is a phone hat you should consider if it is time to replace your current phone, but you do not need or want a smartphone. You want a reliable solution that will last and can esaily make calls, send text messages and maybe take the odd picture.
We admit that it is not the most attractive of devices, nor is it as clever as the iPhone, but what it does benefit from is being able to operate and survive in your world.
A rugged mobile, the Sitemaster2 is water and dust resistant and meets military specifications and is certified to IP67 rating. That is pretty impressive! Thus if you should drop it, it will survive as it has been designed to do so. It is also pressure tested to one ton!
Complete with a 2 year warranty you can be safe in the knowledge that this cost effective mobile phone may just be what you need.
Whilst hi-tech features are not in abundance, the on board FM radio will no doubt come in use if you spend hours on your own but it does have a 2 megapixel camera to capture the odd image, should you need to..
More than suitable for someone in the trade the Sitemaster2 is a great all round solution to your mobile communication troubles.
PLEASE NOTE - DUE TO THE DESIGN OF THIS DEVICE YOU NEED TO USE THE PROVIDED USB CABLE & OFFICIAL CHARGING ACCESSORIES AS MOST AFTER MARKET CABLES & ADAPTORS WILL NOT FIT INTO THE MICRO USB CONNECTION. THE MICRO USB PORT ON THE DEVICE IS RECESSED AND THEREFORE NEEDS A SPECIALLY ADAPTED MICRO USB CABLE.
