Chances are at least a few of you out there work somewhere more rough & tumble than a cubicle or home office. Some jobs are hard on cell phones, but that doesn't mean you can't still pack a badass Android smartphone. AndroidGuys reports that SDG Systems has just announced the launch of the Bluebird Pidion BIP-6000.

The Pidion is an Android 1.5 smartphone which meets "military standards" for being dropped, vibration, exposure to extreme heat or cold, sand, water, and dust. Android 2.0/2.1 is expected to hit this phone in either Q1 or Q2. Despite being billed as a "rugged" phone, the Bluebird Pidion actually packs some pretty impressive stats.

To start, it's got an 806 MHz processor, QWERTY keyboard, bar code scanner, and 3 MP camera with autofocus and flash. It has GSM voice and HSDPA 3G. The display is a 3.5" LCD touchscreen. Pretty solid, especially for a device that's intended to take a hell of a beating.
