Varlink introduces Hammer Rugged Smartphones to the UK
York based mobile computing and data capture specialist distributor, Varlink, is pleased to announce the launch of the myPhone Hammer range of rugged smartphones designed for extreme conditions. Established in 2008, Hammer is a sub brand of myPhone - a Polish manufacturer of smartphones that are currently being sold in 17 countries.

UK resellers can choose from four models which will be stocked by Varlink and ready to ship from the UK with next business day delivery. The range includes the premium AXE PRO, professional AXE M, ENERGY and entry level IRON2, all designed for mobile workers who don’t require intensive scanning capabilities, whether they are technicians, couriers, field sales, construction workers or simply employees who require a more robust smartphone.

"At myPhone we're delighted to be partnering with Varlink to bring these products to the UK. We've had great success across Europe to date due to our great specifications and competitive pricing and hope to build upon this with Varlink in the UK market." Martin MacNamara, myPhone representative.

Designed to look and feel like a consumer device, the Hammer range offers users the familiarity of operating an Android smartphone but comes with the benefits of a rugged device. Built with the latest Android 6.0 operating system, powerful business processors and long life batteries, workers can multi-task and use the device for data intensive operations. Protection from dust and water is achieved with an IP68 rating and a 1.5m drop spec safeguarding from knocks and drops.

A major deciding factor when choosing between consumer and rugged technology is price. Often businesses choose consumer smartphones because of the low initial investment, disregarding the fact that they are not built for business. This is where Hammer phones plug the gap between consumer smartphones and industrial handhelds, as their competitive price point offers businesses a low initial investment compared to traditional rugged handhelds but enable users to meet the demanding operation levels businesses require.

“The demand for rugged devices continues to grow and we are pleased to be able to add myPhone Hammer to our product set so that we extend our offering from tablet and handheld scanning devices to smartphones. Our customers will be able to offer a truly rugged alternative to consumer grade smartphones and to provide scanning and printing solutions built around Hammer by adding companion barcode scanners and mobile printers.” Mike Pullon, CEO - Varlink Ltd

myPhone is one of eight European manufacturers, who have been honoured with the Android European Award from Google. All current myPhone devices have Google Mobile Services (GMS) certificates, this guarantees legitimate access to applications such as Google Playstore and Maps for all myPhone users.
