Samsung and AT&T Wireless have launched a new rugged handset aimed at users needing a device that can stand up to the workday. The handset is called the Samsung Rugby and is the first rugged handset to use AT&T's video share calling.

The Rugby operates on the AT&T 3G network and supports push to talk. Other features include email capability, AGPS supporting turn-by-turn driving instructions and more. The clamshell phone is available in construction yellow or deep burgundy colors. The handset is certified to military standard MIL-STD-810F to withstand dust, shock, vibration, rain, humidity and more. The handset is $129.99 with a 2-year agreement.

"Samsung has developed a sturdy phone that can stand up to the roughest of environments," said Bill Ogle, Chief Marketing Officer, Samsung Telecommunications America. "It is a no-nonsense device with easy-to-use features and a simple, one-touch button to keep you in touch with your contacts."
