Casio showcases rugged Android G-Shock smartphone

Following the rugged G’zOne Commando is yet another tough-as-nails smartphone from Casio for those who like to go out in the rough and don't want to worry about damaging their phones.

The G-Shock shock phone carries the signature design of the watches by placing all the buttons on the sides near the corners. The display is surrounded by a thick frame, which would prevent any damage even if it falls flat on a surface.

The back looks even more impressive, with a stylish metal caseback and exposed screws. Casio has even engraved some emergency numbers on the back.

As you can expect the phone comes with all kinds of '-resistant' prefixes, such as shock-resistant (10 feet), pressure-resistant (1.0 ton) and water-resistant (1.0 bar), although we wouldn't expect any less from a G-Shock phone.

Unfortunately, we don't know much regarding the hardware specifications of the device at the moment. Also, even on the software front, all we know is that it will be running Android, presumably Gingerbread. Hopefully, we will find out more about it soon.
