Verizon Wireless today announced the Casio G'zOne Commando 4G LTE, an update to last year's model. The Commando is a fully ruggedized Android smartphone that can withstand shock, dust, water, fog, sand, and extreme temperatures. It features Casio's G'zWorld app and Gz'Gear sensor for mapping and interacting with the outside world, and can provide information on tides, constellations, barometric pressure, and more. The device has an 8-megapixel camera that can record 1080p HD video and slow-motion video. It also has a 1.3-megapixel camera facing the user for video chats and self portraits. The touch display measures 4 inches, had 800 x 480 pixels, is protected by Gorilla Glass 2, and features Glove Mode, which allows the Commando to be used when wearing gloves. It is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor, has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, and supports microSD cards up to 64GB.

Casio updates its rugged Commando smartphone with a better radio, larger screen, and a more modern version of Android. Together, they make it a much better device than the original.
