The Nokia 800 Tough costs $199 and is made for dirty work sites

Yes, you can still buy Nokia phones, and the $199 Nokia 800 Tough might be their most interesting phone for some time.

If you’re looking for a phone that’s suited to tough working conditions and won’t cost the earth, then it might be worth looking at the Nokia 800 Tough.

On sale for $199 at JB- Hi-Fi (plus delivery, which is a minimum $9.95), the Nokia 800 Tough is cheap enough that you won’t break the bank if you do happen to destroy it.

Nokia claims up to 43 days of standby time on a single charge, so it’s a good choice if you travel a lot or work in the outdoors.

It’s also IP68 rated, meaning it should withstand up to 1.8 metre drops, dust, sand, submersion of to 1.5 metres and temperatures ranging from -20 to 55 degrees Celsius.

The phone also has big, rubberised buttons that Nokia says are designed for use while wearing gloves. It also has a 198 lumens flashlight.
