Casio has unveiled a new G-Shock cellphone at CES 2012. This new G-Shock-tough phone is rated for a 10 foot (3 meters) high drop impact, 1 ATM (10 meters) waterproof depth and it can hold up to one ton of weight. It has a chunky design that looks like they wrapped a resin G bezel around the edge of the phone. And there's a big "G" button at the bottom of the LCD. Casio has announced any definite release details or specifications, so this is more of a concept device.
