The new Cat B10 smartphone and the Cat B25 traditional cell phone can both be immersed in one meter of water for 30 minutes and are impervious to dust.

Both phones are available now in Germany, Switzerland and Austria. The Cat line of cell phones will be launched in the U.S., Chile and Columbia later this month, followed by Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland in September.
