Motorola Jordan can dunk underwater

A new T-Mobile phone, codenamed the Motorola Jordan, will be the first Android phone to be completely waterproof. Boy Genius Report is claiming the Jordan will be waterproof down to 10 meters and even be IP67 certified.

Wikipedia defines IP67 protection as “ingress of water in harmful quantity shall not be possible when the enclosure is immersed in water under defined conditions of pressure and time (up to 1 m of submersion)”, so I’m not sure where BGR got the 10 meter number but anything waterproof is still pretty awesome. I don’t think anyone will want to go swimming with this phone, but it should easily survive a dunk in the toilet.

The Motorola Jordan was previously spotted on the leaked T-Mobile roadmap and was scheduled for a November 3rd release. BGR also expects a November launch date, which is another good sign that the leaked roadmap is fairly legit. Motorola is also supposed to launch a device codenamed the Motorola Beyond in early November, but no further details are available yet.

Since the Jordan will likely be targeted at customers who want a ruggedized handset, I have a feeling the specs are not going to blow anyone way. I would love to be surprised, but it appears that Motorola is sending all their high-end devices to Verizon as they continue to promote the Droid brand.
