Casio Gz'One Ravine is the next rugged iteration for Verizon
This isn't the kind of normal wear and tear we're talking about, specifically, the Ravine will endure some extreme conditions since it meets mil-spec 810G so that it's protected against extreme temperature, moisture, vibrations, and dust. Additionally, it features a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash, VZ Navigator for your location needs, and push-to-talk service to always keep in touch with your crew. Not ending there just yet, the Ravine also manages to pack on a thermometer and a compass – all of which will cost $150 after a mail-in rebate with a new 2-year contract.
However, there was no explicit mention of a date when the handset will become available except for the fact that it'll be “soon.”

3.2-megapixel camera/camcorder with LED flash. Someone was finally paying attention. Newer phones seem to have lower MPix on the camera, w/o flash and no video at all. Hope the battery life is solid on this phone.

I saw one today at Verizon store. The back of the phone is flat and square, feels like a smartphone. The front clock is black on tan and easy to read. It has the G'Gear that the Rock had. Same ringtones as other Casio phones, similar themes. Clear, loud speaker at the bottom of the phone. Camera is similar to the Boulder. The only deal-breaker for me was the keys, laid out in a honeycomb pattern, which felt awkward for texting, despite being large. $199 with $50 mail-in, No Data plan

Hows this one different than the last 3? I don't really see any improvement.
