gzOne Boulder VZ Launch

Verizon today quickly followed up Casio's news of the g'zOne Boulder with its own official launch information. The ruggedized device will ship in black and orange models and is now known to support Verizon's Rhapsody access for unlimited subscription music as well as VZ Navigator for the phone's GPS mapping feature. Verizon also confirms that the phone's signature push-to-talk feature uses faster EVDO Revision A data and can be added to any phone that technically supports such a feature.

The device centers around a military-grade shell with an external LCD that doubles as a compass, the ability to work as an LED flashlight, and a 2-megapixel camera that saves data to microSDHC cards as large as 8GB. The phone goes on sale today through Verizon's online shop and direct sales and should be ready by mid-August for retail. Pricing starts at $130 when the g'zOne is paired with a two-year service plan and a rebate.
