DoCoMo waterproof phone

The Japanese carrier NTT DoCoMo has launched a new and unusual cellphone, the F704i. The phone is actually waterproof to a depth of 10 feet, and so can be used safely in conditions that would otherwise wreck normal devices. It is nevertheless attached to the FOMA 3G broadband network, and can roam worldwide using FOMA World Wing, and download music through Napster to Go. Supported music files include MP3 and WMA; rounding out features are a 1.3-megapixel camera and DCMX banking. Because of its features, the 704i will likely never be sold outside of Japan.
