CTIA 2014 Super Mobility Week: Casio G'zOne Ravine (Verizon)

1:21 /

At CTIA Fall 2010, Jessica Dolcourt takes a First Look at the Casio G'zOne Ravine, a rugged phone for Verizon Wireless

This is Jessica Dolcourt for CNET.com. I'm here at CTIA Fall 2010. I've got the Casio G'zOne Ravine. This is a new phone for Verizon. It is a rugged phone, built to military specifications. That means it is shock proof. It's water resistant and it's also dust proof. You can see that it's got a very flat back and kind of like a rubberized feel around it so that you can wear it if you're in an industrial environment wearing gloves. It is a flip phone. It does have 3G capabilities as well. It's got this very spacious keyboard with some spaces between the keys and the keys are domed. They almost have a triangular peak on them so that you can be able to press them pretty easily, again, if you're wearing gloves. What you'll see on this phone, like all the other phones in this line, is support for push-to-talk so it's like a walkie-talkie feature. There is also a standard micro USB charging port. On the back, you'll find a 3.2-megapixel camera with a flash and this phone will be available very soon for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate. This is Jessica Dolcourt and we are looking at the Casio G'zOne Ravine from Verizon.
