Verizon has just announced the successor to the rugged Casio G’zOne Ravine, the aptly named G’zOne Ravine 2. Just like its predecessor, this phone meets military standards for immersion, water, shock and dust resistance, vibration, humidity, solar radiation, altitude, as well as low and high temperatures. As such, Verizon thinks it’s best suited for workers in hazardous environments like construction, transportation, law enforcement, and the military. This device has the ability to withstand extreme wear and tear, so if you demand that, you’ll be very satisfied with the Ravine 2.
The Casio G’zOne Ravine 2 also comes with global roaming, meaning you can use it almost anywhere in the world. It has a 3.2 MP autofocus camera with LED flash and video recording, two displays, GPS, Bluetooth, and microSD card support. Opera Mini comes preinstalled, as do VZ Navigator and G’zGear software, which gives you a compass, walking counter, astro calendar, thermometer, tide information, sunrise and sunset, and finally lets you star gaze.
The Casio G’zOne Ravine 2 will become available online on November 17 for $149.99 (after a $50 mail-in rebate) with a new two-year contract. You’ll find it in stores starting on November 23.
