Getnord Thor

In most cases, the nearest screen is the face of our smartphones. However, when wishing to access our digital “stuff” or the web, tablet owners usually prefer their tablets for two reasons: a tablet’s screen size and its easy usage.  When surfing the web, reading docs/emails, or viewing other forms of content, the tablet’s bigger screen is simply easier on the eyes and more practical for clumsy fingers.

If you already have a smartphone, good. If you have a tablet, even better. But if you have neither, then you are probably stumped about whether you should buy a smartphone or a tablet. For first-time buyers, this is a difficult decision, especially when you’re drawn to qualities of both.

Introducing the world's first Rugged Waterproof IP68 Phablet. Boasting the combined functionality of both a smartphone and a tablet, Getnord Thor is a resistant and water-submersible mobile phone with a big five inch screen.

With Getnord Thor, you won’t have to carry two separate devices. A Getnord Thor phablet is sufficient in performing all desired functionalities, while offering the portability of a device small enough to carry in your pocket. With almost as much memory as a seven inch tablet, all content is at your disposal. Want to listen to music, watch videos or catch up on your E-book? A practical and reliable Getnord Thor phablet is all you need.

Working on-site; using special industrial apps like mobile SCADA applications, remote controls, GPS tracking and navigation; using M2M interfaces – all of this and more is available on a phablet. If you enjoyed using these features on a smartphone, you will enjoy them even more here.

Aside from its two-in-one functionality, Getnord Thor’s technical parameters are more closely related to an industrial tablet than to the usual run-of-the-mill smartphone. It boasts a state of the art platform with a power-efficient Quad Core Cortex™-A7 CPU subsystem from ARM, the MALI-400 GPU, and MediaTek’s advanced multi-mode UMTS Rel. 8/HSPA+/TD-SCDMA modem. The MT6582 platform is based on advanced 28nm process technology, delivering powerful performance and reliability.

That’s not all.

We developed an affordable, easy-to-use wireless solution that combines all the efficiency of a two-way radio with a mobile phone’s broader wheelhouse of communication. Recently, the walkie talkie has been making a comeback. Credit for this revival can mainly be attributed to a walkie talkie’s free and unlimited communication and simplicity of use. With Getnord Thor, you don't need to haul around two communication devices - the Thor is two-in-one. Make a normal mobile-to-mobile call, or simply push the PTT button, if you wish to talk to a colleague who owns any type of PMR Walkie Talkie.

Walkie talkies typically have long, ugly antennas, which you’d definitely not want jutting out of your cell phone. Huge antennas are simply not modern or practical. That's why we’ve equipped the Getnord Thor with a discreet and removable antenna. When you use the phone to make regular calls or browse the internet, simply unscrew and seal the connector with the rubber plug.

The following pre-set frequencies are regulated by IDA. Getnord Thor can pair with any other type of walkie talkie, so long as they’re tuned to the same frequency:

  •                         CH1 – 446.006
  •                         CH2 – 446.018
  •                         CH3 – 446.031
  •                         CH4 – 446.043
  •                         CH5 – 446.056
  •                         CH6 – 446.068
  •                         CH7 – 446.081
  •                         CH8 – 446.093 

And that's not even all.

Getnord Thor is a real NFC (Near Field Communication) phone, allowing your handset to communicate with other devices and accessories equipped with NFC technology.

NFC is an easy and intuitive technology that allows you to use your mobile phone for special purposes. An NFC tag can share and link to information such as web pages, social media and all other sorts of other information generally. Other areas where NFC is starting to evolve into are making payments, opening doors secured with contactless locks, logging on to computers and many more.
