Verizon launches rough and rugged CASIO G'zOne Ravine

The CASIO G’zOne Ravine may not be the ideal handset for most, but arguably, everyone knows someone who could benefit from owning a device like this. You know the person we’re talking about. That person who is always emailing you, or sending you Facebook messages, because they’ve dropped their phone in a puddle, pond, or pudding. Yeah, that person. Today, Verizon Wireless announced the CASIO G’zOne Ravine handset, a rough and rugged flip phone that is built to withstand water, dust, shock, vibration, humidity, altitude, salt fog, solar radiation, and high and low temperatures. The device, which carries the MIL-STD-810G certification, also packs a 3.2 megapixel camera with LED flash and a noise-canceling microphone. The Ravine comes with several “lifestyle features”; in-case that clumsy friend you know also happens to also love granola, the outdoors, and Subarus. The lifestyle features include a compass, walking counter, thermometer, tides, sunrise and sunset times, astro calendar, and star gazer. Groovy man. The hippie-compliant device will retail for $149.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and new 2-year agreement.
