It was just yesterday that we talked about the possibility of Finnish smartphone manufacturer, Nokia, having the intention to introduce a special kind of waterproof coating on their upcoming Lumia as well as PureView devices. I guess that is a rumor that has gotten out of bounds, so it is good to see that Nokia has stepped forward to deliver that grain of salt you have all been waiting for – by refuting such claims for a waterproof smartphone. According to Conor Pierce, Nokia’s VP for Western Europe, he mentioned about Nokia’s research heritage, which included a waterproof coating for its devices, while rolling out the more affordable Nokia Lumia 610 to journalists there. Something got lost in translation, I believe, and those with a more imaginative mind decided to put two and two together in order to get five – which was clearly not the case. Nokia clarified that Conor “did not say that Superhydrophobic coatings would be coming to future Pureview and Lumia devices.”  OtterBox need not worry about their bread and butter then…
