How many times have you dropped your phone in the bathroom? Even if you haven't, you probably know someone who has. I have a friend who has dropped her phone in the bathroom at least five times, and each time she's had to find a replacement. If you're a klutz, you'll love the Verizon Wireless G'zOne Type-S. Not only is it water-resistant, it's military-tested to be shock- and dust-resistant as well. In short, this thing is as tough as nails. It's a little smaller and appears more streamlined than its big brother, the Type-V, but the Type-S will still take all kinds of abuse. Sure, it comes with fairly basic features such as a VGA camera but no EV-DO support. If you're an extreme sports enthusiast or an industrial worker, however, that may not matter too much if the phone can roll with the punches. Read our full review of the Verizon Wireless G'zOne Type-S for all the details and check out our slideshow as well.
