    Fujitsu UltraSlim Arrows Phone and Arrows Tab Get Dunked and Abused


    A couple of the more interesting new devices to come out of CES this year come from a surprising manufacturer, and got some interesting demo treatment, shown in the video above. The Fujitsu Ultrathin (6.77mm) Arrows smartphone, (of which we shared a bit about previously), and the Fujitsu Arrows Tablet got treated to some steel-ball bearing dropping abuse and full submerging in water to show off their waterproof capabilities. The devices are even promoted as being useable in the bathtub. These devices use Gorilla Glass (no word on whether it was OG Gorilla Glass or the new 2nd Gen version) as well as several other techniques to give them extra toughness and water-resistance.


    Interestingly, when the makers of the video tested the tablet after submerging it in the water, the tablet powered itself off. Was this a case of "epic fail" or simply a battery going dead with bad timing? They weren't sure, but they did attest to having tried several of them without having that same thing happen again. At first these phones will be relased primarily in Asian markets, but the company did express interest in bringing them to the United States as well. It'll be interesting to see how these devices fair.

    In the commercials with their "simulated screen images" these devices always seems so incredibly fast, responsive, and just awesome. It's nice to see how these devices perform in the "real-world" ...another example of "chaos theory". When you need these devices the work the most they never fail to fail. Also, it may have just been the lighting or reflection but it looked like there was moister under the screen of that tablet.

    I hope there's a warning on these devices to not dunk them in water while the charging cable is plugged in. Otherwise some idiot will try it and then sue for getting electrocuted.

    what happen when those little doors become loose? or are cracked open a bit? i mean the 3.5mm jack will constantly be open and close. so will the usb port. will it hold up to 1 or 2 yrs of this kind of use? thats the 'real' test.
