The $199 phone runs Android 2.2 and features 5-megapixel camera, support for Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g/n), Bluetooth, GPS, and 3G mobile hotspots. On the software front, the G’zOne Commando offers “high-security encryption” for you corporate email account and G’zGEAR, an app which operates in 8 different modes. Each of these modes centers around various outdoors-y activities including tides, temperatures, hiking, star gazing, and more.

Rather, it’s for the construction, utilities, and factory employees who tend to find themselves in poor weather and environmental conditions that would normally kill a phone.
