DeWalt MD501 – rugged and solid

Date:11 September 2017 Tags:, , ,

You’d expect a smartphone wearing the DeWalt name to be rugged and come with a 5-inch touchscreen that plays nice with gloves. The DeWalt MD501 is just that – and more.

This hardcore beast-of-a-smartphone comes with a dual 4G SIM. This allows you to access a private and business number without the need for two smartphones. The phone is also not locked to one service provider. If you’re a frequent traveler, you could insert SIM cards from two different countries.

The dual SIMs work simultaneously. If you’re on a call with the one – you can receive calls form the other.

The range sensor and wireless charging are great touches. RTBA, dewaltphones.com
