Probably possible to design a waterproof case that allows underwater operation to some modest depth. Dive charts anyone?
I suppose you haven't actually tested it under water though?
Try this: take a bottle of bottled water, hold it in your hand, and try to operate a capacitive touch screen with the corner of the base. If it works, then I don't think the touchscreen would work under water... Just a guess though.
