It's Tech Tuesday! Every Tuesday morning on Sunrise 7, we'll be showcasing the latest and greatest high tech gadgets. AT&T's Jim Greer gives us an inside look.

Our first segment is geared toward the outdoorsman in all of us.

The first device is the Pantech Element, which is completely waterproof; making it great for those of you who want to surf the web by the pool or who have little children who are prone to spilling the drinks.

The next is the Samsung Rugby Smart, which is a smart phone that's waterproof, drop-proof and even sand-proof, for those of you who like to spend time at the beach. It's also able to withstand extreme temperatures, so it's durable for summer days outside.
