Thursday in CE: The Nearly Invincible CAT S61 Is World's First $999 Android
Quick! Imagine what a $999 smartphone looks like. Is it sleek and polished? Are the bezels nearly invisible? How does it feel in your hand? Would you feel comfortable dropping it on concrete?
Stalwart of the construction industry CAT thinks that's exactly what you should be able to do.
Mobile World Congress in Barcelona is a hotspot for new releases, with companies like Samsung waiting past CES and IFA to release their flagship Galaxy S9. Caterpillar Inc. took this opportunity to release the CAT S61. It is one of the most rugged, and possibly least stylish, premium-priced Android phones on the market. Until now, only Apple has occupied the $1,000 tier with their iPhone X.
