Combining the two phone technologies would make for an awesome camping and hiking phone/computer/camera. I'll take two please...

Yeah, I already have the "Torque", except mine is called a "Brigadier", and is a Verizon exclusive. Let's not be pretending this is a brand new phone, it's been out for a while under a different name.

That said, it's an incredibly tough phone. I my own stress tests that I've subjected the phone to, I've put it through a commercial dishwasher, a rock polisher, ran it over with my ATV, and have taken it white water rafting and kayaking, completely unprotected in my pocket. Sucker is still going strong, with barely a scratch on the plastic, absolutely no screen damage, and is loud and responsive as ever. If you live a rough life, I highly recommend this phone.

Wait. After reading the article, and checking Kyocera's website, there appears to me something amiss here.

You keep calling the phone "Torque" (E6715), yet you list the specs for the "Brigadier" and "Durascout" (E6782). So which is it? They are completely distinct and individual products, they even operate on different radio bands!!

I expect more accuracy from Tom's.
