Verizon has been busy today, updating tons of their Android devices from the XYBOARD tablets to the DROID RAZR and more. Apparently another made the cut and they are now pushing a small update to the not so widely known Casio G’zOne Commando rugged smartphone. If you have one you know it can handle the elements — and today it just got even better.
This durable smartphone that can basically be trashed in any possible way and still come out working great is receiving an over the air update today that should bring some enhancements to performance, not to mention new features and abilities. The most notable change for the G’zOne Commando is push-to-talk has been added to the device. Making this great for construction workers and anyone needing the push-to-talk ability with no additional monthly charge.
The update starting rolling out last night and if you’ve not received the update yourself feel free to go to menu > settings > about phone > and check for updates to enjoy the latest changes. We are also hearing some bugs and problems have been fixed, battery life should be decently improved, not to mention a few tweaks to improve signal.
