Rugged smartphones for ambos in the bush

NSW Ambulance is testing out the use of ruggedised smartphones by paramedics to tackle mobile blackspots in rural and regional areas.

Under a $314,000 trial, 200 vehicles will be fitted with Sonim XP 8800 devices, which are expected to function more efficiently than satellite phones in many environments and are shock-proof, waterproof and dust-resistant.
