Casio G'zOne Brigade is pretty hi-tech for a rugged phone
It looks like Casio has made haste and announced the availability of the G’zOne Brigade side-opening clamshell, which we got to play with back in November. The Brigade was also featured in Verizon’s rebate form this month, meaning it should hit the shelves anytime now. However, the Casio G’zOne Brigade is still not available at Verizon’s online store, although the manufacturer’s site redirects you there to buy it. So, we guess they should make it available like real soon.

Anyways, for those who have missed our previous coverage of the Casio G’zOne Brigade – it is another PTT-capable rugged CDMA (supports EV-DO rev.A) handset conforming to MIL-STD-810F, which should provide resistance for water, shock, dust, vibration, humidity, salt fog, low pressure, high temperature, low temperature and solar radiation… though it is also said that “these specifications in no way guarantee that the product will remain free of damage or malfunctions.” So you should still be careful with it. The Brigade is targeted to the slightly tech-savvier users, than the other phones from the G’zOne series, as it sports a QWERTY keyboard and an internal 2.9” WQVGA screen. The external one is 1.2” monochrome PMOLED (128x96 pixels resolution), which is kind of dandy with its circular framing.
