The last mobile device with a rugged design.

Labor-intensive jobs demand devices that are tough and can survive the everyday grind while still serving as valuable communication tools. Ruggedized devices like the new Samsung Convoy™ 3 are designed for just that.

Workers who trade in a desk for the great outdoors, like those in the construction and landscaping industries need a device that can withstand the elements and the job site. The Convoy 3, for example, has a ruggedized design and certified to meet military standard MIL-STD-810F. It’s not just fancy language though; this ruggedized device has gone through and endured various tests to withstand dust, shock, vibration, humidity, solar radiation, altitude and temperature extremes.

Busy job sites are often noisy, making phone conversations difficult for both parties. The Convoy 3, however, has built-in noise cancellation features that help users make calls that sound clear to the recipient without a lot of distracting background noise.

Businesses depend on the ability to relay information quickly, even to workers at remote job locations. The Push to Talk (PTT) feature on the Convoy 3 makes it easy for coworkers to connect one on one or in a group with the push of the button. PTT technology helps businesses improve the way they communicate in their everyday operations. Supervisors in the office can quickly get in contact with employees across the country, and car service managers can dispatch a driver where needed.

The Samsung Convoy 3 is available online starting today for $99.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. It will be available in Verizon Wireless stores in the coming weeks.
