Kyocera DuraForce XD for T-Mobile

Pro Tool Reviews: There’s no doubt that I get excited about new and innovative tools. After all, if brands only redesigned the housing, there wouldn’t be a whole lot to talk about. What’s really changed is our need to carry technology on the jobsite. From our cell phones to tablets and laptops, it seems like we can hardly be left alone long enough to actually work! Hitting this technology sector of the industry is the new Kyocera DuraForce XD.

It is interesting that this article remarks upon the quickly expanding use of technology on job-sites. Phones and tablets have practically become basic necessities for all aspects of life. Tablets can be used to house drafts and other build information. You can use them to check on material delivery while at the site. It is also an fabulous communication device and probably helps to eliminate errors caused by miscommunication. However, phones can also be a hindrance in situations where you need to be paying attention and be aware of your surroundings. Phones allow us to communicate quickly and efficiently, but it also allows us to check facebook or, as the article points out, watch a football game (the hyper-masculinity was practically dripping from this article, but that is another conversation for a different article). Once you start checking facebook on the job, you never stop. In conclusion, I am conflicted about whether or not a "job-site" phone is a good idea. Phones are excellent aids and distractions.
