Getnord Cat

Bigger doesn’t always mean better

Remember the days when phone manufacturers boasted their product’s compactness and portability? It's hard to believe that the mantra for cell phone makers used to be "the smaller, the better." The fact that the phone could easily slide into the pocket of skinny jeans or into a woman’s clutch was once a key selling point. It was easily operable with one hand. And without a big screen to power, its battery life lasted not for hours, but for days. 


If you, too, are fed up with an "advanced mobile device" meaning massive screens and super-sized form factors, Getnord offers up an unbeatable selection just for you. For those of us who would rather not be weighed down by our phones, Getnord Cat is a small, lightweight rugged device that doesn't compromise on specs. 


Getnord Cat is a premium, ultra-rugged communication tool designed for professionals and adventurers who are exposed to the most hostile environments. With its compact 130 x 70 mm size and sleek rounded design, Getnord Cat fits comfortably into your palm and is easily operable with one hand. 

Made for professionals

When we designed the Getnord Cat, we were guided by completely different principles and priorities when compared with our competitors. We understand that a big screen, fist-pumping audio system is important for teenagers, but when it comes to creating a communication tool that will hold up in the harshest of environments, surround sound is simply not a priority. An efficient, long-lasting battery is.

With its compact screen, the Getnord Cat has economized on the most power- consuming part of every smartphone and has doubled down on power by providing its DualCore processor, which offers an enormous 3600mAh battery! No other rugged smartphone this size possesses such battery capacity. Nor does the Cat sacrifice phone specs – most tablets don’t offer more. You say all smartphones have to be charged every night? Think again – every other smartphone might, but not the Getnord Cat Smartphone.



Walkie-talkie within a 50-mile range

Just pulling your chain – the walkie-talkie is enabled within a 5000-mile radius. Yes, you read that correctly. Getnord Cat is a Zello-ready phone.  Simply download the Zello app, sign up, create a channel, press the special PTT button on the side of the phone, and talk to your Zello-ready colleague or friend at the other end. No ugly antennas, no licenses, no distance limitations. And, what’s more, it’s absolutely free!

SOS function

Risk is always a factor when working outside in harsh environments. The phone is, first and foremost, the most important device on hand if and when you need to call for help. Every second counts in the event of emergency. In light of this, we’ve created a special SOS calling system for lone workers. If a situation arises where help is needed now or sooner, press a single button on the side of the phone, and the phone will automatically dial five emergency numbers, while simultaneously sending these numbers an SMS. The SOS calling system works whether your phone screen is wet, dusty or shattered to pieces, granting you a security net in the event that your security net (your Getnord) needs mending.

Phone usage in special conditions

Getnord Cat has a special TFT (IPS) screen, made with G-F-F technology (Glass-Film-Film) that offers varying levels of sensitivity. Selectable sensitivity has made it possible to use a special function – Glove Mode. This function enables greater sensitivity to touch so that your screen works when operating with gloves or wet fingers. For those working in even harsher and more extreme conditions, the most important functions are accessible without even touching the screen. The buttons on both sides of the phone allow you to quickly launch the phone app, message, use the camera, or send an SOS.
