Fujitsu made a splash at CES 2012 with their new Arrows line of tablets and smartphones.
You can submerge the Fujitsu Arrows Waterproof Android Smartphone under water for up to 30 minutes at about 5 feet deep.
So if your phone slips out of the pocket into a puddle or the stall as you … you know …, then it won’t stop running.
Chuong Nguyen got a hands on demo of what Fujitsu calls “the world’s thinnest waterproof smartphone” at CES 2012 from the folks at Fujitsu.
The phone runs Gingerbread now on a 1.4GHz Snapdragon processor. The quick-response touchscreen gives you smooth gesturing on a 4″ AMOLED display made of Gorilla Glass.
You get a 5.11MP camera capable and handwriting recognition for input.
The phone weighs 105g and measures 64x127x6.7mm (8.5mm at the thickest point). The battery lasts up to 400 minutes of talk time, 330 hours on standby with Wi-Fi turned off and 24o with it on.
If you live in Japan, you can get either Ruby Red or Gloss Black. I’m guessing those will be available here in the US too.
We don’t know when you can buy the phone here in the US or at what price. Fujitsu doesn’t have a US partner yet to release the phone, but it does have FCC approval.
Fujitsu also showed off a similar waterproof tablet that in the same Arrows branding lineup. You can see the hands on video from CES here.
