Huawei and the Discovery Channel have partnered up to produce a co-branded mobile phone that's true to the channel's spirit of outdoor adventure. The rugged phone is aptly named the Discovery Expedition and is ready to take on water, dust, and shock. Perhaps, we'll see Bear Grylls toting the phone in an upcoming episode of Man vs. Wild.

The Huawei-Discovery Expedition phone will not only be able to take on all the elements, but will also include some other features that will come in handy for traveling and outdoor activities. Those include GPS, flashlight, compass, and G-sensor. Facebook and Twitter is also integrated in the phone to allow you to easily connect and share with friends while on your journey.

The rubberized exterior is black and bright orange and the two-inch 320x240 display is covered by Gorilla Glass. It also has a 2-megapixel rear-facing camera and lets you browse the using Opera Mini. The phone is expected to launch globally sometime later this year and you can bet it will be heavily promoted via all of Discovery's media properties.
