Army mobile phone BQ 2432 Tank SE: defenseless, but safe

The Russian company BQ caught the militaristic spirit of the time and released the corresponding mobile phone with the gentle name BQ 2432 Tank SE.

Vidocq in “tank” is quite adequate to the name andsuggests that the device is not enough to penetrate. However, this, it seems, is only an appearance - neither protection against water, nor resistance to shocks is declared in the device’s characteristics. The military essence of the BQ 2432 Tank SE is not that.

The device is called “army phone”, because notcontains nothing that would be prohibited for use in our armed forces. That is, it does not have a camera, a voice recorder, no Bluetooth support, or the ability to access the Internet. There is not even a slot for a memory card (especially touching in this regard, it looks like the standard offer of accessories in the company's online store BQ, including a microSD card).

There are two advantages: a capacious battery and a dual flashlight. Probably bright.

“Protective” color option delivered a separate pleasure. The mobile phone is easily lost on the map of Finland spread on the table.

The price of a uberdevice is £ 169 at start of sales.
