If you're like most busy entrepreneurs, you probably find yourself doing business on a cell phone even when you're on vacation, at the beach or on a camping trip. Maybe you've even accidentally dropped your phone in a lake or ocean. "Once the phone hits the water, that's the end," says Scott Taylor, vice president of Weston, Massachusetts-based MDX Industries Inc. (http://www.cellsafe.com). "You can't ever use it again."

But MDX has a solution--the company offers a waterproof carrying case for cellular phones designed to prevent such an accident. The 8.2-by-2.3-inch Cell Safe case fits in a standard water bottle cage on a bicycle or on the loop of your belt. Made of plastic, the Cell Safe floats when dropped in water and, when dropped on land, shields the phone from damage.

Priced at $24.95, the Cell Safe can be purchased through cell phone retailers or sporting goods outlets, or toll free at (877) 235-5723.
