Apple iPhone 5 to be waterproof?

Mobile phone companies are all jumping on the waterproof life boat, including Apple

It looks like aquaphobic mobiles of today could soon be cured of their greatest weakness when waterproofing becomes common, even in Apple’s iPhone 5.

In an interview with waterproofing company P2i, Tech Radar was told, “We've got the 'fruity companies' and the big Korean brands all becoming interested”. After Fujitsu set the trend by unveiling its waterproof Arrows tablet and phone at CES 2012, it now sounds like BlackBerry, Apple and Samsung are all joining in the phone protection efforts.

We could soon be seeing an iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S III coming with the same P2i waterproofing found in the Motorola Defy+, making separate tough phones a thing of the past.
