Finally, a cellphone you can go swimming with

The photo at the left, taken in 2006, shows your humble blogmeister interrupting his dog-paddling to accept an urgent call on a water-resistant cordless phone made by Uniden.

The photo at the right shows the new Samsung B2100 Xplorer cellphone, which can survive submersion in water up to one meter deep for a half hour without sucking in tiny fish or going belly-up like a dead fish. It also complies with "MIL-STD-810F" for use in harsh outdoor conditions over prolonged periods of time.

Built to be dust-proof and sand-proof, other features include a 1.77-inch TFT display, 1.3 mega pixel camera with built-in LED flash, MP3 music player, stereo FM radio with RDS, microSD memory card expansion supporting up to 8GB and Blueto0th v2.1 with A2DP. It also has a noise cancellation microphone, speakers, flashlight, video capture at 15fps, and support for JAVA.

It should be great for hiking, making war, going to the beach, floating in the pool, or fraternity parties.
