Casio’s G-Shock Prototype Phone is tough, but really short on looks
Remember the jokes we all told as kids about being ugly? “If I had a dog that looked like you, I would shave it’s butt and make it walk backwards!”. “You’re so ugly, you have to sneak up on your mirror.” “You’re so ugly, when your mother went into labor your father went into shock.” And the classic: “You’re so ugly that we had to tie a pork chop around your neck to get the dog to play with you!” You get the picture right? We’ll check out the picture of the Casio G-Shock Prototype Phone that got caught and CES. It’s so ugly it would make an onion cry! Now I have several Casio G-Shock watches. Super Strong, feature rich, definitely an original icon in athletic watches next to maybe the Timex Ironman. So when I heard about the phone prior to seeing I thought the same thing that this is going to be killer. Well, it is killer, but only on the eyes! (this post is a lot of fun so far!)
Casio, in staying with the same styling as their very popular and successful G-Shock watches may have incorporated way to much into it. The rubberized smartphone with their four trademark tabs on the side where on the watch, the buttons would, make this phone incredible bulky. Running Android’s Gingerbread operating system, and is said to be able to survive under water up to 10 meters, can be dropped from 10 feet (not 11ft or bad things will happen), and support a full ton of weight on top of it. Super tough yes, super ugly Heel yeah!

This is a great looking phone. I started with the boulder, my son now has that phone and cant kill it. I went with the Commando and I cant kill this one even with 3 trips to Afghanistan, dropping it in water for 45+ min., and leaving it out in the sun in Iraq for 5 or so hours-149+ degrees that day. I will pass this phone along as well as soon as I get my hands on the new one. Being in the military, these phones are as tough as my Luminox watches. That is TOUGH. I hope to see the G SHOCK phone soon!!!!!
