The "1-Minute" Review
Casio (in partnership with UTStarcom) has established itself as a fine manufacturer of extremely durable phones with its G’zOne line and the Boulder continues that tradition.
The Boulder is a logical choice for people with demanding professions that keep them in less than ideal environmental conditions. The G’zOne Boulder is military-certified to withstand the elements.
In addition to its rugged build, the Boulder runs at 3G speeds, has a 1.3MP camera, Push-to-Talk, an electronic compass and is wired for V cast Video, VZ Navigator and V Cast Music with Rhapsody. (The aforementioned are services offered through Verizon Wireless and are available for an additional monthly fee).
Regarding the Push-to-Talk (PTT) feature, it’s important to point out that this is a new and improved PTT and should not be confused with the previous PTT offered through Verizon Wireless. People looking at this phone will often be outside and should be aware that the PTT service is considerably better than its prior incarnation.
The Boulder rounds out its feature set with Bluetooth, voice dialing capability, speakerphone, alarm, calendar, video recorder and web access. Talk Time is rated at up to 207 minutes up to 212 hours of standby time.
With the Boulder you can browse the web, send/receive SMS and MMS, take pictures and record video, all without worrying that a strong breeze or a little rain will ruin your phone.
If you need a tough phone, Casio has a solution for you.
