The aptly-named Motorola Brute has an interesting, attractive look that is built around practicality and performance. With three dramatic, rectangular grooves penetrating the outer shell on either side of an attractive display to provide additional grip, exposed hinges and a rubbery, it-won’t-fall-if-I’m-eating-chips feel, this flip phone is built to military specifications, meaning it has to be tough.
How tough? Getting a phone to meet military specs is not a formality; it’s an effort. This phone will endure environmental conditions sensible people would be wise to avoid. Therefore it’s a natural for folks who work in the field, including contractors, first responders or a sales force that doesn’t’ want to suffer the minor inconvenience of, um, a tornado, dust storm or sudden rain.
Impressively, this phone goes beyond just being able to survive poor weather. It offers a competent, 2MP camera with flash!, GPS, a strong battery, stereo Bluetooth and expandable memory via an 8GB microSD card. For its targeted buyer, this phone makes technology simple, useful and enjoyable. No hassles making a call, no worries about a little dirt or drop, because the Brute will hold up and perform.
For folks who buy phones because they are working and need a way to stay connected, even during a category 3 hurricane, take a look at the Motorola Brute.
