nTelos Wireless To Offer Sonim XP 3400 ARMOR Ultra-Rugged Phone

February 10, 2012

nTelos Wireless today announced that it has partnered with Sonim Technologies to offer the Sonim XP3400 ARMOR, rated as one of the world’s most durable and toughest phones on the market.

Known for providing high-speed, dependable nationwide coverage and the best satisfaction guarantee in the industry, nTelos Wireless recently started offering the phone in stores and online at

“The Sonim XP3400 ARMOR provides a reliable lifeline for people in harsh working conditions such as farmers tilling their crops, utility workers fixing a downed power line, or firefighters battling a raging inferno,” said Conrad Hunter, chief operating officer of nTelos Wireless. “There’s no question it’s a rugged and reliable power tool of communications and we are proud to add it to our line of wireless devices.”

Ruggedness To Monimize Downtime

Workers in harsh environments will be amazed by the toughness of Sonim phones – they’re dust-proof, water-submersible (down to 6.5 feet for 1 hour), and drop-tested from 6.5ft on to concrete. The screen is equipped with a 1.5mm scratch and shock resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass lens on the 2” high-resolution display. Intended for workers who need the toughest tools in hand, the Sonim XP3400 Armor provides a reliable lifeline for people such as farmers tilling their crops, utility workers fixing a downed power line, or firefighters battling a raging inferno.


The Sonim XP3400 ARMOR enhances the worker’s safety by enabling calls under the worst conditions. The phone features strong antenna performance, the industry’s longest talk time of 20 to 24 hours and 800 hours of standby time, an active noise canceling microphone, and loud audio with a 23mm speaker, protected by a GORE® protective vent. Enhanced usability with widely-spaced keys for ease of use with gloved hands and a higher resolution display with good outdoor-visibility also contribute to dependability that saves lives.

Rugged and reliable, the XP3400 ARMOR is backed by Sonim’s 3-Year Comprehensive Warranty.

Workforce Efficiency

The XP3400 Armor will help minimize down time thanks to its A-GPS capabilities that enable real-time location tracking via Mobile Resource Management Applications. The phone is Brew-enabled so it offers certified third party applications such as workforce management solutions. A strong antenna performance, long battery life and active noise cancellation improve worker safety while the 2MP camera can capture critical information on site.

To showcase the strength of their phones, Sonim continues to dream up new ways that demonstrate how their Sonim’s handsets stretch the limits of phone engineering. Here are some examples using the Sonim XP1300 CORE, which is an earlier version of the XP3400 ARMOR nTelos Wireless is offering, but built with the same strength and durability specifications.
