New case protects your iPhone from scratches, water and sand


A Japanese company called Sanwa is selling a waterproof case [JP] (or a bag as they call it) that protects your iPhone from nasty stuff like scratches, water and sand. Sanwa says their 200-PDA016 is ideal for all users who can’t go hiking, to the beach or skiing without their iPhone .

The case looks pretty robust, but the company promises that users will be able to do everything with the iPhone in it: using the touchscreen, taking pictures and even listening to music (it’s equipped with a special jack for use with waterproof headphones). But be careful, the case is IPX7-certified, meaning it can withstand immersion in one meter of water for up to 30 minutes.


For $35, buyers will also get a neck strap, earphones and an armband. This sound like a very good price to me, but the problem is the case is only in Sanwa’s Japanese online store. You might want to contact the export specialists from the Japan Trend Shop or Geek Stuff 4 U if you want to get one shipped outside Japan.
