Nokia is not new in the world of rugged phones. We have already seen several rugged cell phones from Nokia including, Nokia 5140i and Nokia 5500 Sport. Several other devices of this Finnish company, although not carrying the rugged tag, have a strong shock resistant body. Now Nokia has introduced its latest rugged phone – Nokia 3720 classic, which the company promises is pretty strong to endure fall or water splash. And if a latest video is to be trusted, this phone could not be battered even when it was used for playing golf and rugby.
