waterproof phones?

For now it's just a rumor, but wouldn't a November launch of a waterproof Android phone on T-Mobile be really cool?  Supposedly the Motorola Jordan is that phone, and BGR is reporting that it will be waterproof to a depth of 10 meters.  Think of all the phones you've left in the rain, dropped in the sink, or even worse -- in the toilet.  Not to mention those of us who like to fish or go boating. 

This could make one hell of a weekend phone, for those times when you have one hell of a weekend.  We'll let you know as we find out more.  [BGR]

Jordan? Fire whoever is marketing these phone names. Remember when your phone "name" was just a number?

appmy says:

Yeah. Like the Nokia 5120, 5160, and 5190. We all knew what the 20, 60, and 90 meant. We didn't need fancy names like the Captivate, Fascinate, or Vibrant to know which carrier it belonged to.

Sounds pretty sweet.

Also: "This could make one hell of a weekend phone, for those times when you have one hell of a weekend." Loved that.

November is the month for Project Emerald amirite?! Possible part of the dual-core-ness ?? I would cry tears of joy if so. It is allegedly the HTC Glacier! Glacier = ice. ice = Frozen water. Frozen water = WATER! All pure hopes. And very possibly inaccurate. But I can dream, right?

Nov 5 is the release date

Wouldn't the launch of a waterproof phone in the U.S. make more sense in Spring or early Summer?
