Caterpillar Inc. is the world’s largest manufacturer of construction equipment. Under the heading “Cat Phones”, the company now offers Android smartphones, which have a robust construction, thanks to the company’s experience with building things. With the model Cat S61, Caterpillar Inc has now brought the latest model of the series on the market and thus provides a device that brings along with its robustness some interesting features and craftsmen.
With the indoor air quality sensor, the device should also be able to detect volatile organic compounds in the indoor air, which craftsmen may be exposed to when working with paints, solvents, glues, and adhesives. However, Cat Phones clearly states that the function is not suitable to test “the safety of a place”, but rather it should be used to reduce the burden of such connections.
