Verizon has announced the Casio EXILIM, a folding camera phone with an 180-degree rotating display, a 5.1 megapixel AF camera with flash and optical zoom, Bluetooth support, and more. And like its G'zOne brothers, the EXILIM meets Mil-Spec 810F standards for: water (immersion and rain), humidity, salt-fog, shock, vibration, dust, solar radiation, altitude, and low and high temperature storage
The rotating display lets users flip the display to be able to see the pictures and video they are shooting and then easily flip it back around to a traditional-looking clamshell form-factor. Users can save their pictures and video on an external 8GB
In addition to standard features like an HTML Web browser, a speakerphone, a flashlight, and speech recognition, the EXILIM also offers a variety of Verizon services. The phone supports V CAST Music with Rhapsody, V CAST Video, Chaperone, Media Center, Visual Voice Mail and VZ Navigator. The EXILIM is also Mobile Broadband Connect-capable, that it can act as a 3G modem.
The Casio EXILIM is available now in black and champagne color schemes for US$279.99 after a two-year customer agreement and a $50 mail-in rebate.
