A Waterproof Smartphone?

You know what would be really smart in a smartphone? The ability to resist water.

Wouldn’t it be great to be able to talk or text in the rain without worrying about killing your phone? How liberating would it be to know you didn’t have to worry about dropping your smartphone in the toilet without destroying it? Imagine the freedom of knowing that if your kid dunked your smartphone in milk, it wouldn’t ruin your day.

Well, you’re in luck because the dream of a waterproof smartphone is just about to come true!

According to, the three companies that are working on waterproof and water-repellant technologies “say they’re either negotiating or working closely with phone and tablet makers, and they expect to see water resistance as a standard feature for mobile devices within a year.”

One of the main questions raised in the Time article is: how much will this technology cost consumers? How much would you pay for a waterproof smartphone?

To be honest, I’d rather have a smartphone that could do laundry or prepare dinner for my family. Now that’s what I call a smartphone!

What would your fantasy smartphone be able to do?
