May 29, 2005 A new shockproof and waterproof casing that fits 95% of all cell phones has been released onto the German market for a price under 50 Euros. The WaveCase is so waterproof that it can be used underwater, turning the average cameraphone into an underwater camera capable of catching your holiday snaps above and below the water. As the casing is impervious to water to a depth of 20 metres, it is also ideal for protecting your converged device from sand, dust, rain and and maybe even taking your phone surfing with you (although this does seem to defeat the purpose of the exercise).

The WaveCase is a universal waterproof mobile phone casing that’ll work with any phone no larger than 110 mm long, 55 mm long and 22mm wide.

There’s a strap that prevents the phone from sinking if you let it go whilst underwater, and the WaveCase comes in four colours, being red, yellow, blue and a pinky colour.

Check out the company’s web site to see dozens of images taken underwater with an array of Nokia, Sony Ericsson, Samsung and Siemens

You can buy the phones on-line here or find yourself a dealer (only in Germany at this stage) here.
