Casio Exilim at Verizon

Verizon today officially launched the Casio Exilim. As the first camera phone from Casio for the provider, the Exilim has a 5.1-megapixel sensor like some rivals but also a real 3X optical zoom that lets it crop the shot without losing detail. Its clamshell display also swivels around to give photographers a large display for previewing the shot while still holding the phone like it was a dedicated camera.

Even with the imaging focus, the Exilim is still as rugged as most g'zOne Casio phones and lives up to the US military's 810F standards for dust, shock, temperature and water resistance. 3G data comes through EVDO Revision A and gives it support for V CAST music downloads as well as Visual Voice Mail. Data-assisted mapping comes through VZ Navigator.

Casio's new entry is Verizon's costliest camera phone and is available online today for $280 when linked to a two-year plan. Contract-free, the Exilim costs $450.
