Verizon Wireless and CASIO G’zOne Introduce the Ravine


TestFreaks Data











Hmm, I like rough and tough phones, I think they all should be made that way, but hey we can’t have everything we want right? The new Ravine though has tons of features like Star Gazer, Astro Calendar, Thermometer, Earth Compass and much more and of course it’s dust, water and shock resistant and will only cost $150 after $50 mail-in rebate.

The Ravine is able to withstand the most brutal environments – surfing, skiing, hiking, climbing, hunting, fishing and many other outdoor adventures in between – and it supports Push to Talk capabilities that leverage Verizon Wireless’ 3G network for fast two-way communication.
