The use of this technology will make the future Lumia and PureView handsets waterproof. Making the devices waterproof will not only let the users to use the devices during rain but will also enhance their life.
The Vice President of Nokia Western Europe, Conor Pierce said that the Superhydrophobic technology will make the water bounce, stop it and roll it off the handset. This secret project was revealed at the launch event of the Lumia 610 smartphone.
There are no details about when the smartphones based on this technology will be made commercially available. He mentioned that it will be used on the future Lumia smartphones based on Windows Phone OS and on PureView handsets based on Symbian.
The concept of waterproofing the devices is to makes them completely water resistant. Nokia is not working an all new concept. The Samsung Galaxy S3 has been rumored to have the waterproof special coating. Hope, these devices are made commercially available soon.
