Futuristic Rugged Design Meets Advanced GPS Features

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 25, 2009 — Sleek and stunning, the new CASIO Gï'zOne* (pronounced Jeez-Wun) Boulder ™** cell phone possesses uncompromising tough and rugged features. Combined with the advanced GPS-on-cellular technology of Trimble Outdoors™ application, the Boulder is a must-have for outdoor enthusiasts.

Trimble Outdoors transforms the CASIO G'zOne Boulder into a powerful off-road GPS navigation device enabling an active lifestyle.
