Verizon Casio G’Zone Commando will be updated to Android Gingerbread soon

When it comes to rugged Android-powered smartphones, Casio’s G’Zone Commando is probably the only one that makes absolutely no effort of hiding its true identity. As such, it may have had some success with those who love adventure but would like a smartphone too.

The G’Zone Commando was launched back in April, yet unfortunately it has been running Android 2.2 Froyo for all this time, despite the fact that the newer version, 2.3 Gingerbread, was already available even before the Commando hit the streets.

That said, we do have some very good news for G’Zone Commando owners who would like their handset to have its software up to date. It looks like Casio and Verizon are hard at work prepping an update to Android 2.3 Gingerbread for the phone.

Alongside the platform upgrade, this new software will also come with some very welcome bug fixes and enhancements. The proximity sensor should work better, you’ll be able to enable an automatic signature for SMS and MMS, the overall device lag has been reduced, and Verizon’s V Cast Media Manager will come preinstalled (we’re not sure if that’s really an enhancement or a bug fix, but hey), among other things.

Unfortunately we don’t yet have a prospective date for the rollout’s start, so stay tuned. We’ll let you know when the wait will be over.

    I recieved the update this morning and everything seems to run a lot more smoothly. There is a bit a a visual difference being that the blue is not a lime green on a lot of the starndard android apps. it also might look a little like a negative photo of what they had before but still a good update to get

    got this phone and it lost email info 3 or 4 times and did some strange things and finally to it back and put my BB back on line.  Like the phone but not the problems it produced.  sure wish they would sell phones that have been tested and software bugs are fixed
