Casio GzOne CommandoThe rugged Android phone from Casio, slated to arrive on Verizon earlier this month never did show up, but new press shots of the G’zOne Commando leaked and gives us a clearer look at the phone. From what we can see, it looks like what you’d get if a G-Shock and an Android phone had a lovechild – and taking into consideration that Casio did design the G-Shock after all, it’s not hard to see the resemblance. Anyway, this sturdy phone is Mil-STD 8210G certified for being shockproof, waterproof and dust resistant – no surprise there, seeing how brawny the phone’s case looks.

The Casio G’zOne Commando packs an 800MHz processor with 512MB of RAM, a 3.6″ 480 x 800 WVGA screen, a 5 megapixel rear camera, and will ship with Android 2.2. It will also be preloaded with G’zGEAR apps designed for outdoor enthusiasts – thermometer, pedometer and a digital compass.

No word on pricing or release date, but since the press materials have been completed, it shouldn’t take too long now. Any of you keen on owning a sturdy Android phone like this?
