Casio continues to expand its rugged phone line with the G'zOne Ravine, a follow-up to other Casio handsets like the G'zOne Brigade and the G'zOne Rock. Like them, the Ravine is resistant to dust, water, shock, and a variety of environmental hazards. Casio is billing it as a phone for the outdoor enthusiast, especially with dedicated G'zGear apps that include a compass, a thermometer, the position and times of sunrises and sunsets, the astro calendar, tidal graphs, and more.

Other features of the Ravine include a 3.2-megapixel camera, text-to-speech and voice dictation, clear talk noise cancellation, a voice recorder, e-mail, GPS with VZ Navigator, push-to-talk capabilities, and more. The Casio G'zOne Ravine will be available for $149.99 after a new two-year agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate.
