Report: Nokia signs deal with P2i for water-repelling on future models
During MWC, we showed you how P2i's nano-coating could cover something like a tissue and protect it from getting wet in water. Currently, the company is the one behind the Motorola Splash-Guard that protects models like the Motorola DROID 4 and the Motorola DROID RAZR series from rain and spills. But the newer technology from P2i goes even further, allowing a phone to be submerged in liquid for a period of time.
A new report says that P2i has inked a deal with Nokia and adds that the Finnish handset manufacturer is expected to produce a water-repelling phone sometime in 2013. Some are speculating that this will be the Nokia Lumia 1000 EOS with a 41MP PureView camera. Also covered by P2i's nano-coating is the Huawei Ascend D2.

Unlike the coating applied by waterproofing firm Liquipel, which is paid for by the consumer after the purchase of a phone, P2i's process is part of the manufacturing process and is paid for by the manufacturer. The coating covers all of the phone, including the electrical boards inside.
