Pocket Now received some marketing materials via an anonymous tipster showing off another addition to Verizon’s Android lineup, the Casio G’zOne Commando. This heavy duty phone seems to be aimed at the working man or Bear Grylls wanna-be and touts full resistance to shock, water and dust (what, no bullets?).

Besides being used as a weapon, the phone includes a 3.6 inch Gorilla Glass display, 800×480 screen resolution, 5 megapixel camera, 800Mhz processor and 512MB RAM. Casio was also gracious enough to load it with some of their custom G’zGEAR apps like a thermometer, pedometer and digital compass.

Its also listed that it will be shipping with Android 2.2 Froyo and what looks like some kind of custom UI as a topping. As far as a Gingerbread update is concerned, I’d go off Casio’s track record with Android phones except they have none.

Update: Android Central has receieved a leaked release date and its looks like you can go Commando (I’m sorry, I had to) starting April 28th.
