Reading, England: 2nd June 2015 — Cat® phones announces the availability of the Cat B30, a rugged, feature phone specifically designed for use in the toughest of environments. The B30 is the perfect mobile phone for outdoor workers as well as anyone who needs reliable voice and text performance from their mobile.

With an IP67 (Ingress Protection) certification, the B30 is waterproof to 1m, dustproof and shockproof. It can also withstand a 1.8m drop on to concrete.

With 650 million feature phones shipped in 2014 - according to analyst firm CCS Insight - the global market for feature phones is still apparent, especially in the rugged sector. As more and more individual mobile users and companies experience problems and incur high repair and replacement costs from using handsets in testing environments, it’s a market segment that will remain highly profitable.

“The B30 is built for users who need a mobile phone they can rely on. From builders to farmers, foresters to electricians if your phone needs to deliver reliable voice and text performance combined with class-leading durability, the B30 is the ideal handset.”
- Oliver Schulte, CEO of Bullitt Mobile.
