Huawei has partnered with Vodafone to launch its toughest phone yet in Australia. The Huawei Discovery Expedition is the answer for weekend warriors all over the country who are after a tough and durable device that will stand up to the rigours of outdoor adventures.
Shock resistant, water resistant and dust resistant, the Discovery Expedition is as sophisticated as it is tough, packed with outdoor functionality features, such as GPS, digital compass, G-sensor and SOS.
“The Huawei Discovery Expedition is perfect for people that live for the weekend,” said Mark Treadwell, Head of Device Marketing for Huawei. “These weekend adventurists are looking for a mobile that is as tough as them, that allows them to enjoy their valuable time-off without the fear of breaking their fragile smartphone. The Discovery Expedition is the right tool for the job because it can endure harsh conditions and still deliver a quality user experience.”
Ross Parker, General Manager of Devices and Pricing at Vodafone said, “We road-tested the Discovery Expedition at the Tough Mudder event last weekend and it survived the challenging obstacle course featuring mud, ice-water, electric shocks and fire. If you want a phone with grit; this is the one for you.”
The first mobile of its kind for Huawei in Australia, the Discovery Expedition boasts a high ruggedness IP rating of 57 for water and dust resistance, making it the perfect extreme weekend companion. For those who really want to get off the beaten track and escape city life, the Huawei Discovery Expedition also features Outdoor Functionality, including weather forecast, GPS, Digital Compass, a Torch Light and G-sensor to record steps.
Equipped with Facebook and Twitter social networking capabilities, users can not only experience their weekend adventures to the max without the fear of breaking their mobile, but also share the experience with friends and family.
The Discovery Expedition is available exclusively at Vodafone on a great range of postpaid plans and prepaid, starting at $0 upfront on Vodafone’s $19 Plan over 24-months, or $199 to use with Vodafone Prepaid. For more info, visit www.huaweimobile.com.au.
