New treatment can totally waterproof your BlackBerry

Comments

What would you pay to have the inside and outside of your device coated in a nonconductive polymer to make it impervious to water, oil, dirt and pretty much any other synthetic liquids? $50-$75? Yeah that sounds about right. Meet the Golden Shellback. While it might not be ready for another 4-6 months until distribution methods are in place, I am rip-rearing to give this a shot. Go figure a bunch of maritimers sponsored a project like this – totally awesome, and combined with an OtterBox, it could easily turn your BlackBerry into one helluva rugged handheld.

    I'll believe it when i see it.. Don't see the speakerplug (or jack) staying dry. And if they'r both treated, how is the contact made between the metals of the jack and the plug? Now if the jack had a closed rubber flap, it'd be slightly more believable. I'd like to see that part explained to me. The screen and keyboard part i could believe.
