Verizon and Casio Want You to Roll Commando

Paul Lilly

Looking for an Android phone that isn't like nearly every other one on the market? One that marches to the beat of its own drum? Then perhaps you've been waiting for Casio's new G'zOne Commando for Verizon Wireless. The Android-powered Commando is the latest entry to the rugged wireless category and is aimed in particular at workers who toil in hazardous environments, such as construction sites, warehouses, and factory floors.

The G'zOne Commando meets Military Standards 810G for immersion, rain, shock, dust resistance, vibration, salt fog, humidity, solar radiation, altitude, and low and high temperature storage. It includes a 5MP camera with LED flash, 3.5-inch WVGA display, high-security encryption for corporate email, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS, XT9 and T9 trace input, and a snap-out menu for customized access to high-use applications.

"Designed to withstand the most extreme conditions, the Casio G’zOne Commando easily transitions from work to play with advanced G’zGEAR software," Casio says . "As the ultimate outdoor tool in a mobile device, G’zGEAR operates in eight modes to enhance the active, adventure-driven lifestyle. With the help of its Triple Sensor technology utilizing direction, acceleration and temperature, G’zGEAR enables adventurers to perform at their peak."

The Commando will be available online starting April 28 for $200 with a new two-year service agreement.
