Paby Pet Tracker – Review

We’ve covered this already here at Coolsmartphone but now we’re lucky enough to borrow one to review. For $79.99, this is a pet activity monitor with in-built GPS, WiFi and a SIM card so that you can see where your pet is, live. Oh, and get this, it …

Excuse me, but my dog is calling

So. I’m not totally sure where to begin with this one. I’ll sum it up in one sentence if I can. It’s a camera that you stick fairly low down on your wall that will let you video call your dog. Yeah. Not only that, but if you …

Introducing the Cat S40 rugged smartphone

Want a rough, tough phone that’ll do all that clever smartphone stuff? A phone that won’t break merely by you looking at it, but will still let you keep up with your mates and their flashy smartphones? Cat have a new smartphone on the way. It’ll sell for …

Get yourself a pussy tracker

You know those loving, soft cats that come and sit on your lap, wanting some fuss? Yeah, our cat isn’t one of those. If she does see fit to come near you she’ll either just meow or she’ll suddenly pounce on you for no good reason and rip …

Cat announce the durable and nippy S50

Over the years we’ve rather enjoyed dunking the Cat phones in water and giving them some general abuse. They’re tough, rugged smartphones designed for tough, rugged people like myself. Oh yes. But.. Let’s be honest. If you put one next to the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S5 …

Cat Phones, now available in your high street

If you get a posh smartphone and then hide it away inside a massively rugged cover, Cat Phones are probably worth looking at. We’ve already thrown one in the bath and the people who make the phone even drove a honking great digger over lots of B15 handsets. …

Cat B15Q Announced. New additions and faster too.

The poor Cat B15. We hosed it down, threw it in the bath and then a digger rolled over it. Somehow it kept coming back for more, no matter how much abuse we gave it. We did a full Cat B15 review but today a newer version has …

The Cat B15 gets some SERIOUS abuse

Cat (who, incidentally, have a rather massive presence about 2 miles from here), asked me to “properly test” their Cat B15 smartphone I decided to put it through what I thought was the ultimate test. I gave it to my son and, after explaining that it was a …

Cat photos overtake ‘selfies’

Not too many years ago we were amazed at the thought of having a 1 megapixel camera on our mobile phone. Little did we know where all this was heading. If you think the current ‘selfie’  craze was big, it seems people sharing cat photos is even bigger! …

Win! Five CAT Active Urban Cases to giveaway

It’s January 1st, New Years Day 2014. The very last thing I should be doing is SHOUTING but, on a dreary wet day when your hangover is making your head feel like a football, I figured that a competition was in order. If you’re lucky enough to own …

Cat iPhone 5/5S Case review

As I rule I usually buy just cheap cases for my iPhones. Although I’ve never broken one, I see more iPhones with dents and broken screens than any other phone. I don’t really like these cases, but they serve to keep the back scratch free, but let’s face …

Get rugged, get a Cat case

Those of you who are lovely enough, smart enough, handsome enough and intelligent enough to read our site regularly will know about the Cat B15 smartphone. It’s a rough, tough and solid Android smartphone by the people who make those big yellow diggers. Now, if you’re not ready …

Cat B15 Review

It’s a sad fact that, if you choose to go for a traditional “tough” or “rugged” phone, people have often pointed and laughed at you. Oh, come on, don’t pretend. It’s true. Deep down you also know that you’ve cut some corners too. The screen is rubbish, the …

The Cat B15 – Can it pass the Coolsmartphone test?

Back in February we got a first look at the new tough smartphone from Cat – those people who do the diggers. This, at first glance, seemed to strike the balance between style and ruggedness pretty well. A good quality 4″ screen, dual-core 1GHz CPU, microSD slot and …

MWC – Cat reveal the B15, we go hands on

Big shiny yellow diggers. Trucks. Excavators. Say the name “Cat” or “Caterpillar” and you instantly think of their large machinery, but you may also think of their boots, shirts and now – phones. The new Cat B15 smartphone is here at Mobile World Congress and we were lucky …
