The Cat S41 smartphone, the Cat S31 Smartphone and the Caterpillar T20 tablet are all unveiled at IFA Berlin.

31st August 2017, IFA BerlinCat phones introduces three new additions to its portfolio which see important updates to its rugged and resilient smartphone range and the first release of a rugged tablet. The launches build on Cat phones’ heritage of creating industry leading rugged devices to keep you connected, no matter what challenges the day presents.

Cat phones are used by customers who work in a range of industries, and take part in recreational activities, that regularly put their mobile phone under stress. These customers come from trades including construction, agriculture, security, and vehicle repair, or enjoy activities such as hiking, fishing, and biking. The new Cat S41 and Cat S31 smartphones are packed with upgrades and key features that Cat phones research shows these customers truly value, especially around battery capabilities, rugged credentials, and display technologies.

The Cat S41 is the successor to the Cat S40 smartphone with an upgrade to a huge 5000mAh battery, providing up to 44 days standby time or up to 38 hours 3G talk time, useful when your day takes you somewhere you’re unable to charge your device. It can also charge other devices and accessories with its Battery Share functionality that turns your phone into a power bank. Using the USB Battery Share connector provided, the Cat S41 can charge another product or accessory, but will stop once a user-defined reserved battery level is reached on the S41, set via an easy-to-use, in-app slider control. This ensures the user remains in control, and can use their device as a power bank without having to keep checking they are retaining sufficient charge for themselves.

The Cat S31 is the successor to the Cat S30 smartphone, the foundation of the Cat smartphone portfolio for core customers who need a solid phone they can rely on. It is designed to keep working for you with a powerful 4000 mAh battery, encased in a rugged IP68 waterproof, dust resistant and drop proof to 1.8m onto concrete, MIL SPEG 810G phone that can handle all the elements. The Cat S31 is a phone that you can take with you everywhere, to stay connected and get more done.

The Caterpillar T20 Tablet is the first rugged tablet from the brand and was specially developed for those who work in situations and locations in which extremely durable devices are needed. It has a Windows 10 operating system and LTE and is IP67 certified tablet making it waterproof for 30 minutes at a depth of one metre, able to withstand moisture, sand and dust and drop-resistant up to a height of 1.8 metres. In addition, it is vibration-proof, resistant to salt spray and holds up to extreme air pressure so can be used in every work situation or climate.

“Today’s launches are testament to our ongoing commitment to provide uncompromising devices that are truly fit for the tough environments in which our customers use them. We’ve been careful to listen and build on what we know is most critical for them, resulting in a range that addresses these requirements head on.” said Peter Stephens, CEO of Bullitt Group, global mobile licensee for Caterpillar.

In a study of nearly 22,000 Cat phone users, over three-quarters (76%) said that a long battery life was essential to them, and 98% saw it as a highly valued key feature. The survey also showed that 76% have damaged their previous mobile phone, and experienced the frustration and usability problems damage causes to what is often their only means of communication. Unsurprisingly, 94% of Cat phone owners value their phone being drop proof, while 71% said that a scratch resistant screen is essential to them.
