Casio G’zOne Commando now in the battlefield

Verizon and Casio announced the Casio G’zOne Commando last Thursday, April 26, and sure enough, you can now head over to Verizon’s site and purchase it. As expected, the device will cost you $199.99 on a two-year contract, but if you are not the commitment type, you can get it for the full retail price of $449.99 (with free overnight shipping).

Casio G’zOne Commando specifications:

  • Android 2.2 Froyo
  • 3.6-inch display (480×800), protected with Gorilla Glass
  • 800 MHz processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 5MP rear-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Stereo Blutooth
  • Meets Military Standards 810G for Immersion, Rain, Shock and Dust Resistant, Vibration, Salt Fog, Humidity, Solar Radiation, Altitude, Low and High Temperature Storage
  • Mobile Hotspot with connectivity of up to 5 devices
  • The Commando’s specs are not impressive, but they are not horrible either, and it is something one usually has to deal with, having a rugged phone. The price may be a bit on the high end, but remember that damaging Casio’s armored soldier should be extremely hard to accomplish, since it meets Military rugged standards, so it may actually be a good investment if you are one to drop your phone often.

    Though the phone may not be for everyone, it is very well adapted to those who work/live in an rough environment, and it even comes with Casio G’zGear, with eight modes that will aid those with an active lifestyle. Are you guys getting your hands on this device? Let us know if you think it is worth it, afterall, you can get other devices with better specs for the same price, like the HTC Droid Incredible 2 (also released today).
