We've been hearing about Casio's next US-bound G'zOne for a while now
, but the Rock's been taking its sweet time getting to market -- not unlike the EXILIM before it
, we suppose. We still don't have a release here, but PhoneArena
appears to have nabbed solid shots of the C731 in the wild, showing totally typical G'zOne styling cues with the pointy tips, textured components, and a total disregard for beauty (at least in the traditional sense of the word). They still haven't managed to scrounge up a possible release date -- but really, you could argue that the Boulder
still has some life in it, so we wouldn't be surprised if this didn't hit until closer to the holidays at the earliest.
