Fujitsu's New Super Skinny Waterproof Cell


It’s the same story every time. You’re at a pool party in The Hamptons and you go to push some unsuspecting socialite into the pool only to hear, “No! I’ve got my cellphone in my pocket!”

Pocketable electronics have done nothing but turn every person who hangs out poolside into Chief Nofun of the Idonwanna Tribe. Well if Fujitsu gets its way, that’s all about to change.

The F704i is the world’s slimmest waterproof phone. At just 0.7 inches thick, this seemingly-malnourished gizmo can be submerged in your cocktail, toilet, bathtub, and/or favorite Hamptons pool for up to 30 minutes without skipping a beat.

It comes in four different colors, plays WMA files (subscription and otherwise), and has a 1.3-megapixel camera for those times when you and your lady want to capture a nice round of “Shower Rescue” for prosperity’s sake.

Currently only available in Japan but hopefully coming soon to clumsy/frisky citizens the world over.
