BenQ-Siemens is rolling out the M81, an outdoor-themed GSM cellphone for people who find that their cellphone often takes a little damage. Encased in a synthetic rubber, the M81 is designed to absorb all of life's shocks and jolts as well as give the phone a decent grip. A 1.3 megapixel camera enables you to take pictures of all the adventures you're bound to have.

On the multimedia front, the M81 features a digital music player, which you can listen to using the included stereo headphones. Though it only has 27MB of built-in memory, the inclusion of a Mico-SD card slot makes this inherent limitation a little less jarring. If your wireless provider allows it, you can transfer data to it using EDGE. It'll be available in August in both "steel blue" and "graphite black."
