Motorola's Android flavored Jordan is designed to survive a swim in the sink
If you are one of those people who can't seem to get a grip on their handset, and are always dropping their phone in the sink or down the toilet, Motorola and T-Mobile just might have an Android flavored model for you. The Jordan is a rugged  Motorola device that is expected to be waterproof to a depth of 10 meters (33 feet), so unless you have a toilet or sink that is incredibly deep, your phone should survive the plunge into the water. In fact, the Jordan (obviously a code name and not a tribute to the long retired NBA star Michael Jordan) will be IP67 certified.

The unit is expected to launch or float sometime in November, just in time to live through a drop in the snow. So you can put away that bag of uncooked rice that you carry with you at all times. With the Motorola Jordan, you might not get punished for having butterfingers.

There needs to be more smart phones like this. You pay so much for the phone, why risk it?

Agreed, there is value for working supervisors, leads, etc... Even technicians can use smart phones now days.

One of the most popular river names, other than the Nile, or Mississippi.

They need to crank one of these out for VZW. My bro-in-law is a dairy farmer and loves his Droid, but is always nervous about it breaking or getting wet...

If that is able to be implemented in an increasingly minimalistic way, then it should be considered as a standard feature for almost every upcoming handset.

Wish I had this a couple years ago when I took a vacation and my son and I went to the hotel pool and I had my phone in the pocket of my swim trunks and forgot to take it out. Baked it on 250 for 10 minutes after removing the battery and dried it out, worked for a while but the grill lines always got a chuckle. Note to self, When dying out electronics hta have a lot of plastic, warm up the oven and then turn it off. Wait about ten to fifteen minutes, THEN place in oven. Worked great on my wife's iPod Nano.

Why don't you just throw it in the microwave for 28 seconds... that would be just as smart. On second though, defrost mode might work better.
