The R10 is undoubtedly our best and toughest release to date, and it’s available for just $299.”

Its specifications make it ideal for tradespeople and workers in industries like transport, farming, mining, and agriculture, where a reliable mobile device is essential, given the tough conditions it may encounter.
However, the R10 isn’t just for tradies; it’s designed to withstand daily pressures, including environmental challenges and common drops, knocks, and bumps.”
The R10’s robust design, combined with its IP68 rating against water and dust, makes it a durable option for individuals who need a smartphone capable of withstanding the elements or those prone to accidental drops.
Robertson explained, “Consider it as the perfect companion for a rugged lifestyle. Whether you work in demanding conditions or you’re just a bit accident-prone, the R10 is a smart, sturdy, and rugged choice that won’t break the bank.”
