The Sonim XP7 Extreme, a seriously rugged LTE Android Smartphone, has hit its $150,000 crowdfunding target on IndieGoGo. We have one in to put through it's paces - and we're taking your questions too.

Detailed on this IndieGoGo page, the crowdfunding campaign for the device from Sonim (an already established player in this market) is currently at $157,000, with 23 days still left on the campaign at the time of writing.

The XP7 Extreme looks like it will cope with whatever you can throw at it. It's IP68 and IP69 rated, weatherproof, can cope with serious extremes of temperature, has a gorilla glass protected screen and even has a 3 year warranty which includes accidental damage. It doesn't skimp on desirable hardware features either - as well as LTE, it packs a monstrous 4800mAh battery which paired with the Snapdragon 400 processor should make for incredible longevity. The full spec sheet is available to download in PDF form.

I've walked through the device in the video below, but if you have any questions about the phone - fire away! I'll be torture testing it in some extreme conditions over the coming weeks, so stay tuned for further updates too!
