Still happy to have one as it appeared tough and I can always revert to the freezer bag!! or a proper carrier but anything with these options has to be better than my cheap Nokia

Likewise. I am not looking for an indestructible phone, just one that will be more resilient that most.

So IPX4 is moisture resistance only.

I think I'd buy a box of sandwhich bags

Handy looking features however.

IPX4 = Protection from splashed water.

I've spoken to Simon today, and he's getting back to me with some more information about the waterproofness (is that a word?) of the phones, and what the warranty position will be if they do get wet.

The manufacturer is looking into having the 801 better waterproof, have had one since yesterday and am a bit impressed with it so far, clear good screen, good LED light as well as the Laser pointer, easy to use. Will be able to give more and better results as I have used the phone at work as from tomorrow, am at Heathrow now waiting for boarding the aircraft back home.
