Casio G'zOne Rugged Phone

While most high-profile phones are built for style, Verizon revealed a new phone today that it says is built to survive the harshest conditions. The Casio G'zOne Type-V is unique not for its shape or media features, but for a casing that has been tested against US military standards, according to Verizon. The US carrier notes that the G'zOne is waterproof to a depth of at least one meter, can survive the shock of repeated 1.5-meter drops, and is resistant to corrosion, dust, and extreme temperatures. Importantly, however, the media features of the phone have not been compromised, says Verizon. A 2-megapixel camera, EVDO broadband support, and support for Verizon's own V CAST games and videos put it on par with more recent handsets. The phone will be available online starting tomorrow for $300, and will be in stores as of the 23rd. A full photo is available after the jump.
