Pocket-lint reports that Utah company HzO, which was showing off its "WaterBlock" technology for providing water resistance to mobile devices at last week's CES, has said it is talking to Apple about the possibility of including the technology in future iPhones and other devices. Samsung is also reportedly "excited" by the technology.

"We showed the Samsung Chairman the technology with a Samsung Galaxy S that we had coated with HZO and he couldn't believe his eyes," a representative of the company told us. "Samsung is really excited by the tech."

The company (HzO) has told us that they are also talking to Apple as well, hoping to be able to let Apple make the iPhone 5 waterproof.

"We expect HZO to be in next season's phones," HZO told Pocket-lint rather confidently.
The WaterBlock technology, which consists of a coating applied to interior device components to help them resist water damage, is performed during the manufacturing process and is invisible to the user.

It is difficult to know how serious the company's discussions with Apple are, and any substantial conversations would almost certainly be subject to non-disclosure arrangements. In addition, expo floor exhibitors are of course primarily interested in promoting their products, and any mention of discussions of partnerships with major companies is a good way to generate publicity.

Consequently, it is impossible to put any measure of weight on speculation that Apple might adopt HzO technology, but it does appear to be an interesting possibility for mobile device manufacturers seeking to improve the durability of their products.

Drowning at sea?

Looking helpless and about to concede death?

Not anymore!

With our new water proof mobile telecommunications technology, YOU! yes you poor guy can now make calls underwater!

Imagine the the relief of having this baby when you are about to die! Yes, die.

Just Dial your local rescue hotline and keep holding your breath till they come!

Enjoy!

Yeah it's probably useless for phones but cameras are suitable for this technology.

i dont see how this "micro thin" filter will completely seal your phone from water as H2O molecules are measured in nanometers. im thinking this is just like a plastic water bottle, which only lowers the transmissivity of water molecules(water through time evaporates through the plastic surfaces).

I don't know chemistry but I would guess that the size of most molecules if not all are in the nanometer-scale.

That is awesome and it will be applied to many electronic devices, worldwide. And maybe not just electronic devices.

Water, while the source of life and all pretty much damages anything it comes into contact with.

It hardly matters, it's only supposed to be there for if you took a short dip in the beach without taking your phone out or you dropped it into the bathtub or something :L.
