What's better than a waterproof smartphone? How about one you can clean with soap? Kyocera, which has done a line in toughphones for several year, revealed exactly that. Launching in (particularly soap-themed) pink, white and blue color options in Japan, don't let the kawaii design fool you -- the phone is pretty designed to take some damage. And a shower.


According to Kyocera, because smartphone use is now so frequent, many users are looking for a phone that they can use -- and like anything else, clean it up afterwards. (The press release mentions recipe look-up). To that end, the DIGNO rafre has a longlife, extra-hardy waterproof coating. This "handsoap-washable water resistance" also includes protection from warm water which you'd probably be using alongside the soap.
