The Samsung Convoy and Casio G'zOne Rock are two of the newest Push To Talk devices to come out for Verizon Wireless this holiday season. Both phones meet Mil Spec 810F for resistance to shock & dust, water, vibration, salt fog, humidity, radiation, altitude, and extreme temperatures. The Samsung Convoy comes equipped with a 2.2" 176x220 internal display, 1.3" external display, 2MP camera, and microSDHC memory card slot. The Casio Rock has a 2.1" 240x320 QVGA external display, PMOLED external display, 2MP camera and microSDHC memory card slot. One nice design feature of the Rock is that there is a mechanical release button on the right side of the hinge, which will flip the phone open in one click.
