Cell Phones Step Into the Wild: Casio G'zOne Commando

I'm in the market for a new cell phone that will stand up to some rugged adventuring. Is it possible to find a device that will replace my GPS unit?

Cell Phones Step Into the Wild: Casio G'zOne Commando

Whether you’re going in the woods in summer or winter, you have to prepare for water, shock, and dust. Casio makes one of most durable Android-based phones on the market. At 5.4 ounces, it’s just an ounce or so heavier than a typical Android phone (like the HTC One X), but with a five-megapixel camera and military specs it’s got all the basic features of a phone with the brawn of an outdoor tool. $99; Verizon.
