Go Ahead, Drop This Tablet Into the Toilet

Admit it, you’ve used your favorite gadget gear in the bathroom and, at least once, that phone (or even your tablet) has taken the plunge. You fumbled and in it went into the toilet or sink — or perhaps the tub. If you have one of these new tablets and phones from Fujitsu, though, you don’t have to worry. They can survive a drop into the drink and even full submersion for up to 30 minutes. Fujitsu proved this simple fact in a live demonstration at this year’s CES 2012.


Fujitsu dipped the white, 10.1-inch Android tablet into a bowl of water and then, finally, slipped it fully beneath the shiny surface. Then they grabbed an equally slender Android phone and dropped it in beside the tablet. How do they do it? Well, Fujitsu wasn’t exactly forthcoming. They promised that the ports are “covered” and that the gadgets would work fine when removed. However, they would not describe the exact technology used to keep the tablet and phone safe from the H2O.
