G'zOne Rock touts outdoor apps, music

Verizon added a new rugged phone to its slate through the Casio G'zOne Rock. The clamshell is hardened to the military's 810F standards for dust- and waterproofing, shock and temperature but also now has six apps tailored for hiking and other outdoor activities. It uses its GPS both for a distance-aware compass as well as a pedometer; it also has independent apps for the lunar calendar, sunrise/sunset, temperatures and the tides.

The phone also handles push-to-talk over its EVDO Rev A link and serves as a media phone with a 2-megapixel camera, dedicated media controls on the outside and a microSDHC slot for storage. Verizon prices the Rock steeply and puts it at $200 after both a $50 mail-in rebate and a two-year plan.
