Water resistance on phones/tablets?

Posted Dec 12, 2012 at 10:17 am in Threads > Opinions

Just read the article by Nick Gray on the HTC J Butterfly, which has the water resistance feature. HTC J Butterfly news

Here are one of the current options: Liquipel
and another video (shorter) Liquipel in action

Do you think it’s worthwhile to have the water proofing feature at the expense of wireless charging/micro sd card (as HTC has done)? Or should we just wait for better coating options.
