So Nokia is planning on releasing its future Nokia Windows Phone (and maybe Symbian) to be fully waterproof! How is this possible? NANO Technology.
There was a video from Nokia Conversation a couple of months back demoing this technology, so let me refresh your memory:
Conor Pierce, VP of Nokia Western Europe unveiled the company's new "superhydrophopic" technology at the Lumia 610 launch in London on Thursday, saying that it will be coming to future Nokia mobile devices.
He also explains how it works... "Nano technology lets us do it. Superhydrophobic technology makes water bounce, it stops it, rolls it off the device and leaves it water impregnant, that's the magic, that's what we're going to bring to the party."
The is nothing revolutionary about the technology, in fact I saw a bunch of waterproof everything (laptops, tablets, phones) at last January's CES show in Las Vegas.
But it's good to know that Nokia will be including this as a standard for all its upcoming high end Windows Phones.
Especially since Android makers Motorola are also plotting the same.
