Samsung Rugby Smart Officially Coming to AT&T March 4 for $100

After having seen the Samsung Rugby Smart poke its head out from time to time, Samsung's new rugged smartphone is officially hitting AT&T stores on March 4th. Much like the Pantech Element, the Rugby Smart will be "waterproof," meaning it can be submerged for up to 30 minutes in one meter of water.

The phone itself is built to mil-spec 810F standards, so it's going to handle most extreme conditions pretty well. So let's list off the specs we've heard so far: it will launch with Android 2.3 -- shocker, we know -- as well as a 3.7-inch WVGA Super AMOLED panel, 4GB of internal storage, 1,650mAh battery and a 1.3MP front-facing shooter for video chat along with a 5MP rear facing autofocus camera with LED flash and 720p video capture.

The waterproof feature is nice. I tend to need a rugged, on-the-go phone. Plus being able to drop your phone into a glass of water is a great party trick

A waterproof phone sounds great! You never know when your phone might end up in a pool or something!
