Sprint Adds Intrinsically-safe Push-to-talk Device To Sprint Direct Connect Portfolio

Stocks in this article: S

Sprint (NYSE: S) today announced the addition of an intrinsically-safe push-to-talk device -- Sonim XP STRIKE IS – to the Sprint® Direct Connect® product portfolio, helping to ensure safe, reliable mobile communications for businesses using electrical equipment in gaseous and potentially explosive atmospheres.

XP STRIKE IS is incapable of releasing sufficient electrical or thermal energy to ignite fuel and cause a fire or explosion. It is also safe to use in areas containing flammable gasses, vapors or dust, which makes it a valuable tool for workers in petrochemical, utility, construction and related industries.

XP STRIKE IS is durable, delivers toughness beyond military specifications and comes backed by a comprehensive three-year warranty. Customers can drop the device on concrete from 6.5 feet up or dunk it 6.5 feet deep in water for up to 30 minutes – and it keeps working.

“Customers who demand a device to get the job done in the toughest environments can bet on Sprint Direct Connect and XP STRIKE IS,” said David Owens, vice president-Product Development, Sprint. “It’s rugged and ready with proven resilience, and it’s safe in conditions where safety is an absolute necessity.”

XP STRIKE IS is available now for $599.99 (excludes taxes) with a new line or eligible upgrade and two-year service agreement through direct ship sales channels, including Sprint Stores, Business Sales, Telesales (1-800-SPRINT1) and Web Sales (

Late last year, Sprint introduced Sonim XP STRIKE, the first device from Sonim in Sprint’s product portfolio. The XP STRIKE features instant call setup time on domestic push-to-talk calls and international coverage to Latin American countries that most frequently use push-to-talk.

The pioneer in push-to-talk technology, Sprint added more coverage area in 2012 to its Sprint Direct Connect push-to-talk service – creating three times the push-to-talk coverage of its Nextel National Network with the addition of roaming and Sprint 1xRTT coverage areas.
