Casio has long made tough-as-nails handsets for those who lead an active life. Historically, they've been feature phones. Aiming for the more advanced user who wants a powerful, but protected, pocket pal, the Commando is a ruggedized, butt-kicking Android smartphone ready to take on any punishment you can deliver.
The KEYone is made by TCL and it runs Google's Android operating system, but this phone clearly has the heart and soul of a BlackBerry beating within. BlackBerry and TCL designed the KEYone together to ensure it offers the best from BlackBerry, TCL, and Google.
Casio's latest watch is a smarter wearable. The WSD-F30 boasts a smaller footprint than its predecessor, making it easier to wear.
The LG X venture is a rugged, waterproof handset sold by AT&T. It packs mid-range specs, such as a 5.2-inch display, a Snapdragon 435 processor, and a 16-megapixel camera, into a fairly compact form factor for a hardy handset.

This phone makes absolutely no sense to me.
"I have a phone that doesn't get signal very well on Verizon's network, so I can barely go online with it unless there's wifi in the wilderness ... but, I can take pictures and then go to starbucks after the hike and upload them onto my facebook."
Get a droid, or a fascinate ... and an OTTER BOX! seriously.
This is what we call a "non-phone".
