New Samsung waterproof SDHC cards.

Samsung just released a new type of high speed SD-card which is waterproof,impact proof and also magnet and x-ray proof!!!
The SAMSUNG SDHC Plus Card is protected by securely assembled case and non-conductive polymer coating material. Beneath that first line of defense is SAMSUNG NAND Flash Memory. The NAND flash memory parts, which are core components, are once again protected by Molding Technology. By covering the surfaces of memories with EMC (Epoxy Molding Compound).

I will definitely buy some of those cards!

I found only few stores which have them in Stock: Amazon UK / Amazon DE / Amazon FR
