The Casio G'Zone Type S is a slightly smaller clamshell than the original effort, with a hard plastic loop antenna at the top similar to Sony Ericsson's Z520.

The first one was ugly. This one is FUGLY!

Why can't Verizon get some quality phones?! And drop the the FUGLY red and black bars interface and stick with phone manufacturers' interfaces? Not everyone needs or wants an EVDO phone.
