PhoneScoop spotted the Casio G'zOne Type-S phone on the FCC site yesterday, and it looks to be the smaller version of the G'zOne Type-V phone we reviewed last year. The Type-S seems to be just as durable and rugged as its predecessor, although the specs on it are slightly different: it sports a VGA camera instead of the 2-megapixel one on the Type-V, and features Bluetooth, which the Type-V didn't. The Type-S also did away with the stubby antenna on the Type-V, opting instead for a loop antenna similar to those found on a lot of Sony Ericsson handsets. We can't decide if it's a downgrade or an upgrade just yet, but extreme sports enthusiasts might want to keep their eyes peeled for this one. Even though there is Verizon branding all over the phone, Verizon has yet to announce the phone officially. We've even heard that the Verizon Wireless G'zOne Type-S may already be in a few retail stores, though it hasn't been released.
