LAS VEGAS, JANUARY 7, 2008 – CASIO is pleased to announce that the G'zOne (pronounced Jeez-Wun) cell phone has been awarded the E-Gear magazine Editors' Choice Top 40 Award. E-Gear awards are given to the best consumer electronics products reviewed by the magazine throughout the previous year.

"Looking back through the hundreds of products we reviewed throughout the year in E-Gear, we determined that the CASIO G'zOne was simply one of the best cell phones available," said Grant Clauser, Editor-in-Chief, E-Gear. "This list is made up of gear we actually had our hands on, used and lived with, so trust that if it met our standards, it'll meet yours."

Built to survive extreme environments the CASIO G'zOne is tested to resist shocks, scratches, humidity, dust, vibration, salt fog and solar radiation. In addition the G'zOne is water resistant to a depth of one meter for up to half an hour.

As a result of being chosen for this award, the CASIO G'zOne Type-V is featured in the January/February issue of E-Gear, which will also have bonus distribution at the 2008 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

True to CASIO's legacy of innovation and user-friendliness, the G'zOne models are reliable and easy to use, elevating the new standards of communication. For more information, please visit
