Casio G'zOne Commando to launch on Verizon April 28th?
Over the past few years, Casio has been making rugged phones for Verizon, but the Commando will be the first rugged smartphone. Included features on the Android 2.2 Froyo device be an 800 MHz processor, 3.6" 480x800 resolution touchscreen display, EVDO Rev A with 3G Mobile Hotspot software, Bluetooth 2.1, 5MP camera with dedicate shutter key, Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, 3.5mm headset jack, and will come with a pre-installed 8GB microSDHC memory card.
The Casio G'zOne Commando meets MIL Spec 810G, for being resistant to shock, dust and water, and will come with a variety of G'zGear apps, that include Earth Compass, Walking Counter, Adventure Training, Thermometer, and Tide Calculator. The only thing that appears to be missing is PTT capability. We haven't heard what the final price will be, but it is expected to run between $149-$199.
