LG has announced a waterproof smartphone, called the Optimus GJ. The GJ seems to be just a waterproof version of the Optimus G. They share almost identical model numbers as the Optimus G is the E975, while the GJ is the E975W.
Spec wise it is almost identical.

Apparently the Optimus GJ will be available in June in Taiwan and whether or not it will ever appear in the UK is another matter.
I’m not sure whether I’d like a waterproof phone or not, I’ve never dropped mine down the loo, I’ve never tried to use it in a river or on a boat. Yes I can see why some people would need/want such a device. I just get the feeling everyone is just going
“we’ve got a waterproof phone as well”
Oh and lastly do you want to see some models in bikinis holding the phones? Ok then here you go.
