Casio and Verizon are continuing to roll out software updates for the G'zOne Commando, following the rugged phone's Android 2.3 Gingerbread update late last year. The latest software for the Commando brings it up to version C771M100, and adds free push-to-talk capability, along with the usual sprinkling of bug fixes. The new software is also apparently built on a newer build of Gingerbread than the last version, and includes the "latest Google security patch."

G'zOne Commando owners can find a full list of changes over at the source link, along with update instructions. The update is marked as "coming soon", so we'd expect to see it rolling out over-the-air in the weeks ahead. If you've received your update already, be sure to shout out in the comments.

My wife was looking at this not because she is an outdoor type person but she at times drops things. Does anyone have this device? How well does it run?

A friend of mine got one because she tends to dtop her phones, especially into toilets, which tends to kill them pretty quickly. The phone is quite solid and seems to work pretty well. It isn't quite on par with something like the Thunderbolt, but it does the job pretty well. The most noticeable thing for me is the fact that the touchscreen isn't quite as sensitive as other phones, probably due to the extra screen protection. It isn't hard to use; it's just that you have to press a tad harder than on other devices.

I look at this and think, "This is the one phone that I don't have to buy an OtterBox Defender case for."

it does have a nice loud speaker phone also, or for playing music without headphones. If your not into upper level phone gaming and just want a smartphone this will do all you need and works great. Anxious to see what they come up with next as they build on thier first smartphone to date. Love the water proof thing, the next version might be my next phone, but I like to root and run custom ROMs and there likely won't be any for a casio phone....

I saw a piece (on this site, I think) announcing their next phone, the G-Shock. Not too many details yet, but it has a very odd button arrangement where the buttons are on the sides, like a watch. The thing looked awfully ugly to me, and, keep in mind, I can tolerate the looks of the Commando.

I like the idea of a rugged phone, but, IMHO, Casio might be pushing the boundaries of aesthetics a little too far with this new one.

I have this for work.... And I take it with me when I hike and do out door stuff instead of my personal droid charge, no case.. no worry about water damage... its awesome, Yes a bit harder to press and the keyboard is smaller so i use swype on it. but its a rugged beast no doubt A+++
