Casio's super tough mobiles

Mobile phones

The G’zOne TYPE-R not only has one of the most god-awful names we’ve ever seen, it’s also one of the most rugged mobiles around. The clamshell is waterproof up to one metre, shock resistant (thanks to the protective foam rim and magnesium alloy case) and it comes with a number of features designed to aid outdoors types, such as 3 types of navigation system (including a digital compass), a stopwatch, flashlight and buzzer. There’s no fish hook or tweazers, but it does have an "extension mode" which lets you check emails and use your address book when the battery is dead. It’s also got a 1.28-megapixel camera so you can do a spot of snapping while you’re out in the wilderness.
