The unit received a 3.6-inch display with a resolution of 480×800 pixels, protected by glass Gorilla Glass. The battery should provide 7.5 hours of talk time. For those who like active lifestyle phone, in addition to dust-and moisture-resistant high-impact case, can offer features such as a thermometer , pedometer and digital compass.
Verizon does make a good point in the spec sheet you can see at the source, it has Android 2.2 so it will have Adobe Flash, and can do Verizon’s NFL Mobile unlike most of those other rugged and durable phones.
