Waterproof Mobile Phone

Verizon Wireless G'zOne Type VHaven’t we all been waiting for this day? Haven’t we all wondered if we can really serenade over the mobile phone in the rain. Haven’t we all been worried about our mobile phones dropping into water?

Well, worry no more as last Wednesday at the 2007 CES Consumer Electronics Show, in New York City, the show unveiled Verizon’s Wireless G’zOne Type-V mobile phone that can work underwater. The G’zOne Type-V mobile phone comes with a 2 megapixel camera which allows you to take underwater photos (don’t let your imagination run wild — I know what you are thinking).

This phone will be made available in the US for USD299.99 which is approximately RM1,090.62 if we use an exchange rate of RM3.635 to a USD1.00. Looking at the build of this mobile phone, I would say that this is probably not what a normal corporate person will carry along. If you are into extreme sports that has to do with much body of water (wake-boarding, snorkelling, canoing or logrolling), then this mobile phone is to be seriously considered. You just might need to make that phone call when you are in the wilderness.

For more images of the G’zOne Type-V mobile phone, check out reviews on Amazon, CNet’s review and MobileTechReview on the various tests conducted on this phone. Don’t underestimate this mobile phone, it has been rated as military grade.

    Hi Al,
    Thanks for the note and query. I did a bit of search for the G’zOne accessory but to no avail. Coming to think of it, since this mobile phone is made to withstand the worst that its owner can throw at it, I would suppose that there will be limited accessories for it.

    For one, the clamshells have rubber-sealed seams are a screwed into the phone; to keep out water. I would suppose that it is unlikely that you will find other interchangeable clamshell colours for the phone. The green, orange and red covers are great attention grabber, if you ask me. 🙂

    I was diggin’ getting a set (3) of these phones for my family. The waterproof thing is way cool and I believe.

    My problem is I have read the quality of pics is not good for these phones. I need good pics guys, give me a call when you work that out. THX
