FCC documents reveal host of pictures of Casio G’zOne rugged Android device
That short-term has passed, and now to documentation on this G’zOne, noted as model C811, bares all for us to see.
Specification-wise, we can only go by this device’s Japanese counterpart, known as the G’zOne Type-L. That device is running Android 4.0 and has a dual-core 1.5GHz processor. It also has 1GB of RAM, a 4-inch WVGA display, 8.1MP camera, Wi-Fi, NFC, and Bluetooth 4.0 LE. According to the user manual, an 8GB microSD card will be included with this new G’zOne.
We would like to think that if Verizon announces this device now, it will be running later version of Android, but it is distinctly possible that we could see ICS at this G’zOne’s debut. Outside of that, the device is packing rugged good looks, will have an OEM extended battery option (2,920mAh) in addition to its standard 1,800mAh power source, and wireless charging will also be available. Like the previous G’zOne Commando, this will meet MIL-STE-810G standards for water resistance, withstanding dust or a drop from about 1.5 meters.
Despite this device making its appearance at the FCC several months ago, we do not have any information about price or availability with Big Red. It cannot arrive too soon however, its predecessor (model C771) turns two-years old in a couple days. In the meantime, we have a bunch of photos of the device from the FCC documentation below.
