Motorola unveils Quantico rugged phone

Motorola-QuanticoMeet your everyday duties head on with Motorola Quantico™. This rough and tumble device is built to survive and designed to let you thrive. With a tough-as-nails exterior forged from chrome, glass, mesh and rubber, Quantico will keep up with you no matter where you go.

Dare to Dunk

An accidental dip in water used to spell trouble for your mobile phone, but fret no more with Quantico – thanks to a submersible design that protects the device in up to one meter of water for up to 30 minutes. Rubber overmold and sturdy gripping textures make sure you always have a handle, even after it’s been dunked.

Certified Against Mother Nature

Don’t be afraid of getting dirty on the job. Built to meet military specifications2, Quantico safeguards against extreme pressure, temperature, dust, shock, vibration and blowing rain. Go ahead and take the device from the office to off-roading and back.
