G'zOne Water-Resistant Cell phone
MANUFACTURER: Casio Inc.
ESTIMATED PRICE: $300
THE DETAILS: The G'zOne is billed as a water-resistant cell phone for people with "outdoor lifestyles," as well as those who try to answer calls in the shower. The hardy handset can withstand heavy rains as well as submersion in water up to three feet, as long as the user seals the headset and charger ports with plastic plugs. The phone, available in the U.S. through Verizon Wireless, has a two megapixel camera that can shoot pictures and video underwater. The flip-top also has a rubber bumper to protect it from falls of up to five feet. Verizon says the phone has been tested to work in temperatures in excess of 140 degrees Fahrenheit — perfect for sauna lovers. www.verizonwireless.com
