At the boat show today I came across this new waterproof phone. It's got some silly gadgets (altimeter, laser pointer!) but looks like a very tough bit of kit.

The RRP is £199 but there's a boat show offer of £159.99 which includes a free wind up charger, 256mg memory card, and 12 months subscription to Reeds Online Almanac
(which is worth £35 on its own).
I know that a few people have said that they want a waterproof phone, and Reeds are keen to get some of these out into the marketplace. If we can get an order together for a few of these we can probably negotiate another few quid off, so let me know if you might be interested and I'll see what they'll offer.
