Fujitsu F705i Waterproof Cell PhoneInventHelp’s Invention Girl wasn’t always tech-savvy – at one time, I was downright hazardous to technology. I even dropped the first cell phone I ever bought into a puddle within hours of purchasing it. After finding out that my warranty didn’t cover water damage (grrr!), I ended up coughing up the dough for a replacement. Lesson learned: water and cell phones don’t play nice!

Now, there’s a cell phone that can handle a plop in a puddle without flushing cash out of your pocketbook. The Fujitsu F705i is the world’s thinnest waterproof 3G cell phone. The F705i is so waterproof that you can wash the keypad with water. In fact, it can handle being immersed in 3 feet of water for a full 30 minutes. Luckily, most puddles InventHelp’s Invention Girl comes across aren’t that deep!

The F705i technology isn’t all washed up, either. It automatically adjusts volume settings in response to environmental noise levels, and powerful 8-level zoom technology simplifies email reading tasks. Audio player functionality and a 1.3 mega pixel camera (which, considering the F705i’s size, is nothing to scoff at) round out this sleek, modern phone.

Unfortunately, the coolest gadgets often break overseas first, particularly in Asia. So InventHelp’s Invention Girl is saving up for airfare – right now, Fujitsu F705i is available in Japan only.
