Is it just us, or does the Type-S variant of Verizon's G'zOne line of rugged handsets look decidedly less... well, rugged
than its Type-V sibling
? No matter; as long as it can actually stand up to the abuse it's designed to take, we're all for prettier handsets. Little is officially known about what the Type-S will bring us -- and it appears that little has changed since it first made its cameo
a few months back -- though we now have a peep at the screen and keypad here, both of which appear to be standard fare. That in itself is impressive, considering that the unit should be waterproof; now just throw in Bluetooth and a decent cam and we're sold.
