Liquipel 2.0 ready to waterproof your Apple iPhone 5 or Samsung Galaxy S III
Motorola has a nanocoating done by P2i on some DROID models
One big thing being changed is how you can get your phone treated. Last year, you had to send your device to the company and wait for it to return. Now, for 2013-2014, Liquipel is going to be opening locations in shopping malls with the first one expected to launch at the West Edmonton Mall. The company will charge $60 to coat specific models like the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III. For a complete list of models covered, check the sourcelink.
It seems to be a similar process to the one that P2i uses to coat the Motorola DROID RAZR HD line and the Motorola DROID 4. Those models are considered water resistant and will repel water from a spill or from rain.

I may have to send my Note II off for water resistance treatment. Every time someone with a drink comes anywhere near my Note II, my hand instinctively goes out to block the risk.

I'd pay it. $60 is way better than having to go through the hassle of either getting a new phone or posting for the insurance deductible and waiting for it to come.

Just the time spent setting up a replacement phone would cover the $60 treatment cost. Cloud backups are getting more and more comprehensive, but there are inevitable hiccups.

Zig, they've just announced that with the 2.0 treatment on approved devices that if your phone does from accidental water damage they will replace or repair it for free!! Nobody comes close to this, not HZO, not P2i, NOBODY! So sick

Finally, I want this for my note 2 they just need to open more areas. To be honest, they should have done this sooner because if they have that distribution in place, that would most likely be a money maker for them. At the same time though, if manufacturers start including waterproofing in their devices already (at least in the US) we could see that dilute pretty quickly.

Please visit clickpick.ae to see a iphone 5 waterproof video. They are not using any water resistant case to protect it from water. It is simply great....
