Sonim Technologies’ rugged cellphone has undergone the same “armoring” as rugged notebooks, offering field workers a communications device that resists dust and micro-particles as well as six-foot drops and random vibrations. The carrier-unlocked device can be submerged in up to three feet of water for 30 minutes. It will be released in the U.S. sometime in 2009, with a suggested price point of $499.

Hewlett-Packard is marketing four external “hands free” hard-drives for backing up one’s laptop or desktop system. The two portable, laptop-centric drives come in either 320GB ($119.99) or 500GB ($149) models, while the desktop models have a capacity of 1TB ($149) or 2TB ($329.99). All four will scan a hard-drive and perform automatic backup, and support the majority of existing file formats.
