By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola and Verizon Wireless have unveiled a new mobile device, Motorola Barrage that can sustain one meter of water immersion for around 30 minutes.

Motorola said that Barrage is constructed from chrome, glass, mesh and rubber to protect it against blowing rain, humidity, solar radiation, high and low temperatures, blowing dust, salt fog, altitude, shock, vibration and transit drop. In addition, it also features push to talk capability for quick conversations.

The flip phone is equipped with battery that packs 1170 mAH for extended talk time, 2.0 megapixel camera and camcorder, and dual speakers. Verizon Wireless offer services including VZ Navigator, V CAST Music with Rhapsody and V CAST Video on Demand.

The Motorola Barrage is offered online at Verizon Wireless website and in business sales channels for $129.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate with a new two-year customer agreement. Verizon Wireless Communications Stores will retail it from mid November.
