You know that annoying moment when you need to reply to a message or make a call but you also need to take a shower? Inconvenient right? Well, that problem could soon be resolved with the announcement of Sony'€™s Xperia Z phone. The new Android device will be tolerant of the wet stuff, withstanding submersion in up to one metre of water for 30 minutes (it might be a good buy for those prone to dropping their phone in the toilet). Best of all, germaphobes can wash their phone with antibacterial soap after somebody touches it. A launch date is expected later in the year.
