World’s First Dishwasher Safe Cell Phone
Seal Shield LLC today announced the new SEAL CELL Waterproof Cell Phone. The product is the world’s first cell phone to be washable and antimicrobial. The Seal Shield SEAL CELL phone is easy to clean. Regular cleaning in the sink or dishwasher can help prevent the spread of germs, viruses and bacteria, which are known to harbor on frequently touched surfaces.
The SEAL CELL has been created to help reduce the risk of worldwide cross contaminations, including H1N1, Norovirus and the “superbug,” MRSA. Dr. Charles Gerba, University of Arizona, tested numerous common surfaces and found cell phones are the highest carrier of bacteria with 25,000 germs per square inch, or 500 times more bacteria than the average toilet. Unlike any other cell phone, the Seal Shield SEAL CELL phone combines Seal Shield waterproof technology and SILVER SEAL technology for antimicrobial protection of the product, making it dishwasher safe and resistant to mold, mildew and odor causing bacteria.
The SEAL CELL is Dual SIM, Dual Holding Quad Band GSM compatible and features a 2.0 megapixel camera with video and torch light, GPRS, MMS, background noise elimination, walkie-talkie function, Bluetooth 2.0, GPS and a ruggedized touch screen. The SEAL CELL is waterproof to international IPx7 standards and is completely dishwasher safe. The phone also contains SILVER SEAL technology for antimicrobial protection.
The product is scheduled to begin shipping in early 2010. Pricing has not yet been released.
