P2i reveals new technology and launches legal action
Water-resistant smartphones attracted plenty of interest last year at Mobile World Congress... and they were back this year.
UK-based P2i, which already provides a splashproof liquid repellent nano-coating for some Motorola and Alcatel mobile devices, has been showing off its forthcoming ‘Dunkable’ technology. This increases the level of protection by protecting smartphones that are submerged in water.
TCL Communication, the company behind Alcatel One Touch mobile phones, has announced the Android-powered One Touch Idol Ultra.
It’s just 6.45mm deep at its narrowest point yet offers a 4.7-inch HD AMOLED display, an 8 megapixel camera and a 1.2GHz dual-core processor.

As day 2 begins, there’s a review of Monday’s news headlines, a conversation about user experience with Jerome Nadel of Option and a look at water protection for mobile phones from P2i.
