If water damage is your only concern, you may want to stick with a conventional gadget—and then waterproof the heck out of it. Liquipel, which specializes in waterproofing nanotechnology, offers waterproofing for a variety of devices, including the iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III, and Motorola Razr Maxx. Liquipel covers the inside and outside of each device with a nanotech coating that causes water to ball up and roll harmlessly off (or out of) the hardware.
