    We got to take a look at a demo of Liquipel's amazing waterproof coating at CTIA 2012. We came away shocked and impressed at the protection this technology offers. I can personally verify this iPhone used in this demo was still functioning properly later that day/night (6 hours later.) We received a piece of tissue paper treated with Liquipel after the demo to take home with us. Sure enough, what we saw, is what we got. The tissue paper actually cradled water as I filled it up. It's truly incredible.

    The coating last's a lifetime, and we'd have to say at $59.99 it's a steal. For those wondering how long you will have to go without your handset, you'd be looking at approximately one week. As soon as they receive your handset they will apply the coating and send it out the next day. Has anyone sent in their handset already or looking to do so after seeing this demo? Let us know. Enjoy!!

    So that's what you sound like? :)

    Nice intro animation...

    And man, that's pretty amazing.

    That's amazing technology. $59.00, Hmmmm. I've never trashed a phone with water, but I did turn a palm pilot into a pool pilot a number of years ago. My phone never goes near the pool anymore. I've had my wife and my daughter both ruin phones just by having them sitting on the counter and someone spills a glass of water near the phone. Sitting in a puddle of water for just a minute can ruin them.
    I'd like to know what it does to the appearance of the screen. Does the coating change the display in any way??

    I'd be shocked if it did, did you see the friggin tissue? That's SICK. He was still able to tear the tissue, but it repelled the water, incredible science they've come up with here, already wondering about other measures and ways it could be used.

    This is pretty amazing stuff. Like I said in my last article about it... the chemical molecular bonding process seems almost like "magic." I know they claim a lifetime warranty, but I wonder how long this stuff will really last?

    I'm not sure how it's different from the Razr coating, but Moto says it will protect your phone in a rainstorm, NOT underwater. That demo is incredible. Now I can talk and text on my phone while I wakeboard...sweet!

    On their website they have a list of devices that are "approved" for their treatment. Right now it's a pretty short list, but I'm sure it will grow.
    Apple iPod Shuffle
    Apple iPhone 4s
    Apple iPhone 4
    Apple iPhone 3g/s
    Galaxy S2 (T-Mobile)
    Galaxy S2 (AT&T)
    HTC Evo 4G
    HTC Evo Shift 4G
    HTC MyTouch 4G
    Motorola Droid X/X2
    Samsung Charge

    If I could go without a phone for a few weeks, I'd definitely do this. I saw a Liquipel demo on YouTube awhile ago and was thoroughly impressed. You have to wait about 3 weeks (shipping and actually doing the process).

    One word.

    where-the-hell-do-i-sign-up!?

    EDIT: their website only has a handful of devices on it which doesn't include the Galaxy Nexus.
