Finally! Amazon introduces a waterproof Kindle; priced at Rs 21999

Amazon introduces waterproof 7-inch Kindle Oasis with Audible integration, metal body

Waterproofing has always been an omission on Kindle e-readers, and will now let people read at the beach or in the bath tub without worrying about damage, Amazon said.

Amazon on Thursday launched its most advanced e-book reader "Kindle Oasis" that features company's highest-resolution "Paperwhite Display" and is the first waterproof (IPX8) device.

The Kindle Oasis is available for pre-order online now at JB Hi-Fi and Officeworks for $389AUD and the 32GB device for AUD$529. The device fits over 30 per cent more words per page and it has the fastest page turns of any Kindle. The 7-inch Kindle Oasis features a metal chassis and it's completely waterproof (IPX8 rating). This means that you can now take your e-reader to any place you feel like. The look of the last year's Oasis has been redefined. The price of the Kindle Oasis is around £40.00 cheaper than last year's oasis.

Saarnio said: "I'll end at an ebook page at home, take my Kindle Oasis into the vehicle, pair it via Bluetooth and then hit play and it picks up the audiobook right where I left off in the ebook". Apart from Bluetooth, it offers Wi-Fi connectivity as well. The 32GB version will also be available with a 3G connection for [$280], which can be used within more than 100 countries.

Ahead of the 10th anniversary of the original Kindle in November, the new top-end device aims to lead Amazon's e-readers into the next decade with a new aluminium design, longer built-in battery life and a larger, brighter screen. You can also purchase water-safe fabric covers for your new Amazon Kindle Oasis in shades of Sandstone, Charcoal, and Indigo, all at Rs. 2,999. The premium leather covers are priced at Rs 3,999 and will be available in black and merlot color variants.
