Shockproof news - Tough live television for mobile phone reporter
A professional associate in the tough mobile phone business recently forwarded me news of this gem: a reporter on a United States breakfast television show was recently testing the veracity of claims made for a waterproof mobile case on live television when she dropped her microphone into a pool of water.
All was going well. The reporter submerged the phone in several feet of water, exclaimed, "It still works!", then, in her excitement, let her microphone slip from her grasp. The result? £1500 worth of microphone waterlogged and ruined.
We already know that some tough mobile phone companies are lending their expertise to other fields, including dustproof, shockproof and waterproof laptops, tablets, PCs and other devices.
Perhaps there's another market in store for the manufacturers of tough mobile phones... super durable microphones for absent-minded television reporters.
Here at Tuff Phones, we can't help but feel a little bit smug. Our phones are so durable that we like to conduct our interviews while bungee jumping from waterfalls.
