The Toughphone  journey started in 2013 when the first Defender rugged smartphone was launched. The success of this device opened new doors for both our company and our partners. Consequently this engagemnt with our partners and listening to feedback we continued our development.

Firstly, in Spring of 2015,  the Defender 2 was released. Soon followed by the Defender Pro in the Fall of 2016. And after that the new Defender Beast was released in Summer of 2018.

Alongside our Defender smartphones, we developed a range of rugged tablets; Defender Tab and then the Defender Tab 2. Ideal for those customers who need a larger screen, and perfect for those workforce management applications.
