Land Rover will unveil a ruggedised mobile phone at this week's GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.

The Land Rover S1 is the first in a series of projects by Land Rover and California-based phone maker Sonim. The phone will be fully submersible, Bluetooth-compliant and certified to withstand salt, fog, humidity, transport and thermal shock, as well as a 1.6m drop onto concrete.

It includes a two-megapixel camera, assisted GPS and the Opera-mini web browser. The phone has a three-year warranty and same-day replacement service.

The official launch of the S1 is slated for summer 2009. Sonim and Land Rover will be co-marketing the phones in 40 countries.

Land Rover engaged Sonim in December 2008 as its licensing partner for a line of rugged, waterproof cell phones aimed at outdoor adventurers.

Sonim also makes an end-to-end mobile VoIP platform that delivers high-performance push-to-talk services on GPRS, UMTS, EVDO, Wi-Fi and Wimax data networks.
