The Pantech Element Android Tablet Only Matters Because It's Waterproof

Illustration for article titled The Pantech Element Android Tablet Only Matters Because It's Waterproof

The Pantech Element is a sorta nice, cheapo 4G LTE Android tablet for AT&T that has a 1.5GHz dual core processor and blazing fast download speeds (100Mbps! Yah! Sure! Only if you're inside a tower). It only costs $250 but requires a scar inducing 2-year contract (why!) but that's not the reason I care for it. The only reason the Pantech Element matters is because it's waterproof and waterproof gadgets are boss. [Gizmodo Live Blog]

I wonder how "waterproof" it is. Can it go underwater and function with the touch of a finger? That would be pretty amazing. I wonder how divers could utilize a tablet underwater. Can 4G go underwater assuming you're not too far off the coast? I can't remember how radio waves fair when traveling from air to water.
