Products Heavy-duty smartphone Dewalt has entered the smartphone market with a tough Android-powered handset designed for building industry workers. The USD544 (R7 984) device is designed to survive a 2m drop onto concrete, and can operate in temperatures ranging from -20-60°C. To be certified as a ‘tough phone’, handsets have to undergo more rigorous physical tests, including being subjected to tumbling – turned over and over inside a device for long periods of time. They also have to be water- and dust-proof. A vision oF beauty Natural beauty is re-interpreted in the Samsung Maldives wall-mounted air-conditioner series which offers a ‘soft blended’ touch. The smart inverter R410A-charged Maldives boasts a modern design and a customised solution thanks to its long piping and centralised control. The long piping can run to a max of 50m with a max height of 30m. Other benefits include a high Seasonal Energy Efficiency Rating (SEER) and extreme reliability in the form of power protection and its anti-corrosive condenser. The unit also includes a full HD filter to clean the air by collecting up to 80% of dust. The wall-mounted indoor units can also be connected to a wired remote control lik e other types of ceiling indoor units. The Maldives series is available in silver and white in the following capacities: 2.6kW, 3.5kW, 5.2kW, and 7.1kW.
