Fujitsu drops its phone underwater with the all-new F706i which boasts about its waterproof feature where one can enjoy TV and conversations with someone underwater.
The phone can be used 6 metres underwater, but we wonder why the phone would be used underwater in the first place! The phone uses a 2-megapixel camera, connects using fast HSDPA connectivity and a full browser which will give access to audio and video formats as well. The phone will also entertain further with its Mobile TV feature which can be watched even under water. So the next time you put your phone to wash by-mistake, you need not fret as the phone’s waterproof, however we are not sure if it’s detergent-proof!
The clamshell phone measures 109×49×16.9mm and weighs 137 grams and shows off its clear 2.7 inch screen which is ideal for TV viewing. The Fujitsu F706i’s price and availability hasn’t been spoken about but it seems that it will first step in Japan and then move around depending on its popularity. The phone may not be used underwater, but seems of good use during monsoons and accidents where the phone is dropped in water.
