Fujitsu Arrows Waterproof Tablet/Smartphone

It's not CES these days without a few waterproof products. Fujitsu indulged us this year with not just a smartphone but also a tablet that can withstand being submerged in water. The Wimax-equipped smartphone doesn't come in a bulky protective case. Instead, the ES IS12F Android phone is slender at just 6.7mm thick and carries a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. The Arrows ES IS12F comes with Android 2.3 but isn't available outside of Japan yet.

Fujitsu also showed off an Arrow's waterproof tablet. The 10.1-inch device comes with Android 3.2 and a dual-core CPU, and along with being resistant to water, the Arrows tablet also has a hand gesture control feature that gives users the ability to interact with the touchscreen without actually touching it. No word on pricing or availability for the Arrows tablet.
