The Casio Commando is a rugged smartphone that is coming to Verizon starting April 28th. They are touting it as something strong and durable like the Motorola Defy, only better, and with Android 2.2. This phone should be able to handle all the drops, spills and dirt that most of you outdoorsy type do. I would mention a time frame to possibly get Android 2.3 but Casio has no track record for us to speak on.
I have to admit, it is a bizarre looking phone, but if you need something durable for on the job and don’t need the best top of the line phone. This very well may be the phone for you. It features a 3.6″ Gorilla Glass covered display, an 800 Mhz CPU, 512mb of RAM, a MicroSD Slot and most of those other usual things like a camera and such. It is an interesting device that is for sure.
Verizon does make a good point in the spec sheet you can see at the source, it has Android 2.2 so it will have Adobe Flash, and can do Verizon’s NFL Mobile unlike most of those other rugged and durable phones. I don’t know about you, but most construction workers and manly men seem to also like Football. Here in the states at least. So that is all good news. The 75 dB loudspeaker sure sounds like a nice addition also, but I’m not sure if I would use that feature much myself. For more information hit the source.[via PocketNow]
