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.

Hands On

Great phone. Same great build quality as their other mil spec phones. Really was impressed with it. Time for people that like rugged phones to step up to smartphones.
I'm excited to check one of these things out. I've always liked Casio's G'zOne phones and this seems like a natural evolution of those.
Bing? Shocked

A "commando" phone that only works in the US?

A real commando phone would at least have quad-band GSM.
The phone is called "Commando". A real "Droid" phone whould have legs, translate lauguages and carry my lightsaber. Rolling Eyes
