Casio Commando 4G LTE claimed destined for Verizon launch this year
A new smartphone from Casio will be making its way to Verizon, according to a leaked image. The Casio Commando 4G LTE, the follow-up to the <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287546==http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/04/26/casio.gzone.command.android.phone.hits.verizon/" rel='nofollow'>Casio G'zOne Commando</a> released in 2011, appears to retain most of the angular and ruggedized appearance of its predecessor, but adds in LTE connectivity and is likely to have other improved internals. <br />
<br />
According to <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287547==https://twitter.com/evleaks/status/344562653680791552" rel='nofollow'>the</a> <em>evleaks</em> Twitter account, the Casio Commando 4G LTE will be out later this year, though this is yet to be confirmed. An earlier <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287548==http://www.electronista.com/articles/12/10/18/gzone.c811.shows.up.at.fcc.with.verizon.lte.nfc.ra dio/" rel='nofollow'>FCC filing</a> for the C811, a possible match for the Commando that has the same pointed base edge, reveals it will have NFC, Wi-Fi, and GSM connection options, on top of LTE. <br />
<br />
The original G'zOne Commando was a device that met the US military's 810G specification for immersion in water, resistance to dust, vibration, impacts, and temperature. Marketed to hikers, it had a 800mHz processor with 512mb of RAM, a 3.6-inch 480x800 display, and a five-megapixel camera. While it was initially supplied with Android 2.2 that later got <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/287549==http://www.electronista.com/articles/11/10/05/delivers.gingerbread.and.other.enhancements/" rel='nofollow'>updated</a> to Android 2.3, it shipped with a Casio-tuned interface providing various useful apps and widgets, something that seems to continue on this new device.
