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?


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.
