If you're a fan of the rugged G'zOne phones (the Type-V was the original while the Type-S is its smaller cousin), you'll be happy to know that Verizon Wireless is coming out with yet another G'zOne rugged phone, and it's called the Boulder. Engadget says that the measurements of this thing are 2.02 inches by 3.94 inches by 0.91 inch, which makes it slightly slimmer than the Type-S (which is around 1.1 inches deep). Expected features include a 1.3-megapixel camera and EV-DO Rev. A-based push-to-talk, similar to Sprint's QChat technology. And as the images suggest, the Boulder will be available in both black and orange.
Samsung's toxic phone may rise from the ashes as a refurbished phone, as part of an environmentally responsible plan to deal with millions of recalled units.
