Today Nokia officially unveiled the Nokia 3720 classic - a rugged handset, designed to survive in enviroments where others won't. Coming with IP-54 certification and entry-level feature set, the Nokia 3720 classic will be a direct rival to the Samsung B2100 Xplorer.
Nokia 3720 classic is the next member of the almost forgotten line of “rugged” devices by the Finnish manufacturer dating back to Nokia 5140. Its IP-54 certification indicates complete dust and splash resistance, while Nokia also claim greatly increased shock resistance.

The body of the handset is made of stainless steel elements, sealed materials and rough textured surface. The back cover is protected against water and dust by a metal screw lock. A couple of days ago we were able to catch a glimpse of several Nokia 3720 classic torture tests that the little fella passed with flying colors.
In addition to the extra tough body, the Nokia 3720 classic sports a 2.2-inch QVGA TFT display, capable of showing up to 16 million colors. There is also a 2 megapixel camera with LED flash, which can also be used as a flashlight onboard. Bluetooth 2.1 support, FM radio, 2.5 mm audio jack, microUSB and microSD card slot (1GB included in the box) complete the feature-list of the S40 device.
Unluckily the 3720 classic doesn’t feature 3G support, leaving the tri-band GPRS/EDGE as its only network data transfer option.
