Of course the case protected the phone. The dangerous entries are the speakers and mic. If the iPhone stays for not a long time the case definitely helped.

    We don't really know for sure I guess any more than we know that "iphone 3GSS video test" clips are actually recorded on the 3GS. Really though, to make something like that up would be kinda pointless.

    You are right... so don't believe it. Doubt the guy cares one way or the other anyway.

    Seems cool but there's always the possibility of trickery. Lucky him if it did fall in that it still works.

    WARNING: This is fake, he used the phone in a waterproof case, the 3GS is no more waterproof than a 3G.

    Not saying you are wrong about him lying, but I think we would have noticed if it was in a bag. It still might just be a camera or something.

    I also want to mention the pretty decent quality of video.

    apple did mention waterproofing (for easy cleaning) in some keynote (i remember it) except they said the 'holes' are still vulnerable (his case must have blocked them)

    I clearly can see an iphone shadow and reflection in the video if you run it thru Final Cut Pro and view frame by frame.
