With the launch of bunch of phones last month, Verizon Wireless made happy the whole spectrum of customers. Next to the Motorola Moto X and slightly more modest Kyocera Hydro Elite, the carrier also released the Samsung Convoy 3. The phone is available for purchase from Verizon’s online store for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. If you prefer to shop in brick and mortar stores, you will have to wait a few weeks, since at the moment you can buy the device online only.
Samsung Convoy 3 for Verizon Wireless
The Samsung Convoy 3 for Verizon Wireless is a ruggedized flip phone that meets military standard MIL-STD-810F for protection from dust, shock, vibration, humidity, solar radiation, altitude and temperature extremes. The device comes with built-in noise cancellation features, thanks to which making calls in a noisy environment will never be a problem again. The handset also offers Push to Talk service, which allows you to communicate with other users in a walkie-talkie style, that is with the push of the button. All these features make the Samsung Convoy 3 a perfect device for active users who spend most of their time working outside.
The phone sports a 2.4-inch main display as well as a 1.3-inch secondary display, which allows you to check time, battery level, and pending notifications without having to flip the phone open. The device is equipped with a 3.2-megapixel camera with video capture, and is powered by a 480 MHz processor. Other features include 3G connectivity, Bluetooth, and microSD support up to 32 GB.
