The Casio G'zOne smartphone is known for its rugged exterior that can survive rain, drops, humidity and most of the other things that can bring your average everyday handset to its knees. The Casio C811 is an unannounced version of the G'zOne that has just visited the FCC and thanks to the trip, we know that the device supports Verizon's LTE network and its 3G CDMA pipeline. The documentation also reveals that the phone will offer a microSD slot, NFC and Wi-Fi capabilities and international GSM support.

An FCC meeting doesn't always mean that the launch of a device is imminent, but it is one step that must be completed before the phone is allowed for sale in the states. In addition to the information gleaned from the visit to the FCC, Casio and Verizon do have a relationship that dates back several years with the G'zOne line. This could be the first model in the series with 4G LTE connectivity, which means those who need a rugged phone won't have to skimp on data speed.

The problem is the looks... If it's plain ugly like the last one, the ruggedness will only be good for the ears.

Where I live guys love the rugged looks of the Commando. I've sold many of those and had many happy customers who love to tell you just how far they've pushed the phone and it still works.
