I saw this while looking at the site I frequent regularly for Jailbreak info.
Aparently a company called Liquipelled has developed a coating that can make an iPhone and other smartphones waterproof without an external case.

I was reading that the second company was actually talking to Apple and a few of the other manufacturers about implementing on future phones. Not sure it it will make the price go up but volume might make it affordable.

Below is the article:

Water damage continues to be a major impediment to the otherwise long-life most iPhones and iDevices should be fortunate enough to enjoy. But if you're accident-prone around water or have a toddler who likes to drop things into the "potty" (something I learned the hard way), the concept of Apple developing water-proof iDevices is very, very attractive.

Apparently, the team in Cupertino shares our concern. As a result, we're hearing today that a company called HzO, which makes a high-profile "WaterBlock" technology, is said to be in talks with Apple to make iPhones and, ostensibly, other Apple gadgets water resistant.

According to our friends at Picket-lint, a company official was recently heard at CES saying that they "expect HzO to be in next season's phones." It has been rumored but not confirmed for more than two years now that Apple wants water repelling technology for its iPhone. If the reports out of CES are accurate, such a development may transpire in time for the next-gen iPhone.

The people at HZ0 maintain that their WaterBlock solution is safe and made from organic materials. For those chiefly concerned with the iPhone's look and feel, the company says WaterBlock wouldn't alter the phone's appearance or weight.

"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling that thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself." ....
