Verizon Wireless and Casio lift the cover off ruggedized Casio G'zOne Ravine 2
The Casio G’zOne Ravine 2, a tough warrior with military standard ruggedized design, has just marched in the Verizon Wireless lineup. The G’zOne Ravine 2 is the successor of the first Ravine, a PTT rugged handset released on Big Red a year ago. Just like the original Ravine, the second edition comes in a flip phone form factor with only a tiny screen with the clock displayed when the clamshell is closed and an instantly noticeable red button on the side for push-to-talk.

The Ravine 2 ships with the G’zGear application delivering essential information for the targetted outdoor active user. G’zGear shows an Earth compass, a World Nature feature orienting you about your orientation towards the North Pole or other important objects, and you also get a step counter, a sunrise/sunset clock and tide information for various US cities among the heaps of features.

The G’zGear Ravine 2 is a feature phone, of course, so when speaking about pure specs we should take this into account. We have a 1.38-inch screen on the exterior, a 2.5mm headset jack and memory extendible via microSD cards of up to 32GB in capacity. There’s also a 3.2-megapixel snapper.

The Casio G’zGear Ravine release date is soon - on November 23rd for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate, if tied to a 2-year contract with Verizon. Online however it will appear even earlier - in just two days on Thursday, Nov 17th.
