Verizon Wireless has been keeping busy these days. The company announced the sales launch of yet another Android phone today – the tough Casio G’zOne Commando.
As you can notice from the picture, the phone is not your plain vanilla Android device – it is designed to meet military spec MIL-STD-810G toughness standards. In plain language, this means that the phone is capable of taking just about any kind of physical abuse without losing even a tad of its functionality. In case you don’t believe me, check out the tested toughness criteria, which the device meets below:
Impressive, isn’t it? Now to the standard phone features. The device will run on Android 2.2 (no word on Gingerbread at this point) bundled with the standard Verizon bloatware. The screen will be a 3.6″ WVGA with hardened Gorilla glass. There is Wi-Fi b/g/n connectivity on board along with Bluetooth support. RAM and ROM memories will be 512MB and 1GB respectively, along with support for microSD cards (up to 32GB). You get a 5MP auto-focus camera for taking pictures from the war zone. Strangely enough, there is no info on the processor of the device.
The price for the invincible Casio G’zOne Commando will be $199.99 on a two-year contract with Verizon Wireless. What do you think? Will such a device make a lot of fans? Your comments are welcome in the section below.
