This week's top gadgets represent the best in wireless. Pantech bows the cheapest 4G LTE phone, Bose the best-sounding Bluetooth speaker, Livio the most flexible car radio, Belkin the slickest way to wirelessly connect your AV gear to the Internet, and Kyocera, a tough cell phone.
That's one fuzzy picture, right? That's because the phone is actually in a pitcher of water. It's the Kyocera Duramax, built to withstand the rigors of the real world – dust, shock, vibration, high and low temperatures, solar radiation, salt, fog and, as you can see, in water up to one meter in depth for up to 30 minutes. Then not dunked, it's a Sprint Direct Connect – aka push-to-talk feature phone. It's not a smart phone, but not stupid, either – it uses a now old fashioned menu-based Web browser. No word on when or how much yet.
