With a name like Gz’One, you know that your cell phone calls are going to be…….EXTREME! You’d expect the kind of cell phone that would be perfectly suited for holding in one hand while downing Mountain Dew, snowboarding, and feeling up a supermodel with the other hand. IT’S THAT EXTREME!!! (Note all the exclamation points to denote even more extremeness.)
This isn’t a cell phone for pussies. There was some serious brand focus group action going on with this cell phone. Here’s what the phone’s tagline is: With this phone, show no mercy. Because the place’s you’ll take it certainly won’t.
Holy crap: this is the first time that I’ve feared that a cell phone might kick me in the nuts.
The Casio G’z One (the press release says it’s pronounced Jeez-wun) looks like a cell phone the Terminator would use to call Sarah Conner in order to warn here someone was after her teenage son, John Connor.
With my G’z One, I go ‘Commando.’ No, that doesn’t mean I’m going to be making phone calls while wearing no underwear – this is the specific model I’m testing out.
One cool feature of the phone is large front speakers. This is a plus for big fans of speaker phone calls – most likely when commanding the troops or busting the balls of your corporation when they are gathered around the conference room while you happen to be rocking climbing or bungee jumping. The Gz’One has the highest speaker volume in the Smartphone genre.
The Casio G'zOne handsets are built tough in accordance with stringent military specifications. Know what that means? They can withstand the elements, including immersion, rain, and humidity. The Casio G'zOne simply laughs at the normal spilt cup of coffee.
The Casio G'zOne Commando is the first rugged Android phone from Casio and Verizon Wireless.
