    Very excited. The Archer 2 seems to skillfully blend uncompromising ruggedness and field-worthiness with a lot of the advanced technologies users have on their smartphones and take for granted these days. The larger screen and much higher resolution is definitely a big plus, and the projected battery life is phenomenal.

    The way I know you guys, you probably won’t rest until you’ve kicked and dragged and tortured the new Archer 2 in every way possible, and beyond, just to show how tough it is. Can’t wait for the video. 🙂
