It'll be cool in a few years when being waterproof is a standard feature that no-one even considers a selling point when getting a new phone. I'm sure insurance companies won't be as enthusiastic though.

Imagine a 41MP Nokia EOS than can take underwater images.
Go Nokia, way to use the available resources :D

Do you make the ecosystem first or the phone?
I seem to remember baby Android without any toys when it was young.
Who knows, "maybe" WP can handle more HD games than Android in the future "If" it matures that is.
Imagine some XBox games made playable, Who knows what the future will bring to Android, WP, and iOS.

how about making games and apps first.. you really don't need water repelling phone if you don't have games and apps.. just saying..

Yeah, cause Microsoft doesn't have anything to do with games. It's not like they make xBox360, or XBox Live, right? WP8 couldn't possibly have any games now, or in the future ;o)
