Casio G'zOne Brigade

Casio G'zOne Brigade

Normally rugged phones offer few, if any, Internet-connected features — apart from the chirps of Nextel push-to-talk conversations that serve as sonic litter on most construction sites, they're typically just a few steps beyond the StarTacs of old. Not so with the Casio G'zOne Brigade ($250). This water- and shock-resistant handset offers a flip-open design with a rugged QWERTY keyboard and 2.9-inch display inside, and features a document viewer, a full HTML browser, a 3.2-megapixel camera with autofocus and flash, and voice recording — you know, in case you need evidence of that "construction" order that involves hiding poor Billy's body in a concrete slab.
