Varlink introduces Seals' ultra-rugged Smartphones to its product line up

Varlink, the York based specialist mobile computing and data capture hardware distributor, is taking a step towards the rugged Smartphone market, in becoming UK distributor for Seals and its two ultra-rugged devices.

Seals offers two devices; the TS3 and VR7 in its portfolio, both of which will be available from Varlink. The TS3, ultra-rugged Smartphone is IP68 rated and runs on Android 2.3.6 operating system, with dual SIM capabilities for making and receiving calls. The Smartphone has a large 3.5" HVGA Capacitive Touch Screen, allowing workers to easily demonstrate information and operate the phone out in the field. With a suggested list price of £315, this is an ideal, low-cost rugged Smartphone solution for challenging environments.

The VR7, like the TS3 from Seals is tested and certified to MIL-STD 810G standards, not only this but it is IP67 rated, with a 2 meter drop to concrete specification. The ultra-rugged GSM phone runs from Java operating system and is equipped with a 2 megapixel waterproof camera. With a suggested list price of £239, this makes an ideal solution for workers requiring a rugged phone out in the field.

Mike Pullon, Varlink CEO, commented: "The Seals devices, not only provide us with another IP68 ultra-rugged option for our resellers but also take us a step closer into the Smartphone market, differentiating our products from our competitors. Furthermore the Seals devices are positioned at a competitive price and we look forward to offering our resellers an alternative option which doesn't compete with our current products and manufacturers."

Both the devices are available from Varlink, and you can call them today for your pricing on 01904 717180. You can view more information on the website at
