Yes, we do love fishes, and we do know just how potentially dangerous introducing a smartphone in a fish bowl could be, for the fish of course. That doesn’t stop us from marveling at Haier’s latest, the world’s most inexpensive waterproof smartphone created. Called the Haier Zing, with “Zing” meaning “powerful” in Chinese, this phone’s dustproof, waterproof, shockproof and seemingly clumsy-user-proof too. Also, the phone makes use of the Aliyun OS by Alibaba and sports a 1GHz processor, a 4-inch display (800×480), a 0.3 megapixel front facing camera and a 5 megapixel rear camera. Priced at a pleasing $157, this smartphone is a perfect companion on a trip outdoors where falling in little streams of water is unavoidable.
