Nokia puts the kibosh on waterproof Lumia rumors

Nokia puts the kibosh on waterproof Lumia rumors
Apparently there was a bit of a mix up in the reports that Nokia would be applying its new “Superhydrophobic” technology to its Lumia and PureView lines. At the event, Vice President of Nokia Western Europe, Conor Pierce, spoke about Nokia's work on its waterproof coating. In a separate announcement, Nokia also announced the budget friendly Lumia 610 at the same event.

Somewhere along the line of Internet transmission of the story, the two announcements got merged into one. Nokia released a statement to The Verge saying Conor “did not say that Superhydrophobic coatings would be coming to future Pureview and Lumia devices.”

In short, we will probably eventually see Nokia’s waterproofing technology on its devices, but there are no immediate plans for a waterproof line of Lumias or PureViews.
