G-Shock smartphone previews at CES 2012
Casio have previewed a G-Shock smartphone at CES 2012 in Las Vegas. The phone looks to have all the essential G-shock DNA with a rugged appearance and shock resistance. The new models looks to be a step on from Casios previous attempt at a rugged phone the G'zone.
Although only a pre-production prototype the phone appears to feature the following
*Android OS - we really hope they stick with Android!
*Shock resistant to 10 feet
*Water resistant to 1.0 bar = 10m !
*Pressure resustant to 1.0 bar
*Plastic / resin construction
*Camera and flash
Further pictures below, hopefully this will get a worldwide release soon, previous Casio offerings haven't been seen much out of Japan and the US.
