Super small Water Resistant CARD Phone CM1-AQUA (video)

This company, CARD, has been my favorite booth since last CommunicAsia. This year, without fail, it has shown some innovative products that are very affordable. Check out its latest CM1-AQUA card phone. It is super slim, light and yet water resistant.

It has an IP68 rating that means it can be submerged into less than 2m deep water for less than 30 minutes. According to the CARD people, they have actually tested much longer time without issue. Here are some views of the phone.

Close up of the back view. As you can see, it is translucent. When I dipped it into the water, the internal is actually wet. I am not sure how they protected the circuitry from water, it is still working fine.

The phone itself is heavy and will sink to the bottom when you put it inside the water. However, the maker has made a “float” like a cover to prevent it from sinking.

Here is a video to show you how it is done.

The phone will be available from 1st July 2013. It will start selling from Singapore Changi Airport. As of the visit to the booth. They have not decided the final packaging. Here is the packaging that might become the final product.

The retail price is also not fixed. You could be looking at S$105 for the retail price. We requested for catalog but it is still not ready. So, the best thing besides the catalog is the banner with information of the CM1-AQUA. Check it out.

    Probably coated with those HzO (http://www.hzoinside.com) or similar nano-coating at the manufacturing level for the waterproof circuitry inside. ;)

    Actually I also think so. But did not ask him.
