Verizon Wireless and Casio today announced the Commando, a new mil-spec 810G Android 2.2 smartphone that can withstand a wide range of abuse from the elements. The Commando will be loaded with Gz'Gear software, which allows it to operate in eight different modes. It has a compass that interacts with GPS to show nearby landmarks; a pedometer for measuring distances; adventure training software; trip memory for storing travel data; tide charts; thermometer that can access weather data for multiple locations; sun/moon rising and setting charts; and GPS-aided star-gazing and constellation-spotting. The Commando also has a 5 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash and video capture; and Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and mobile hotspot. The Casio Commando will be available starting April 28 for $199.99 with a new contract.
