Waterproof Kyocera Hydro for Boost Mobile to Surface August 3

It’s summer, and that means trips to the beach or pool. But water and cellphones don’t mix — unless you have a waterproof phone like the upcoming Kyocera Hydro for Boost Mobile.

Available Aug. 3 for $129.99 without contract, the Hydro is splashproof and can be submerged in up to three feet of water for up to 30 minutes.

The 3G-enabled smartphone will ship running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and comes with a 3.5-inch touchscreen and a 3.2-megapixel camera on its back.

Monthly plans for Android smartphones cost $55 and include unlimited voice, text and Web. However, for every six on-time payments you make, Boost Mobile will reduce the price of your plan by $5, so eventually you could pay as little as $40 per month for unlimited everything.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
