Amazon announce new waterproof Kindle Oasis

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

The e-reader is now up for pre-order on Amazon.in and will start shipping from November 13. The Kindle Oasis will cost you $249.99 for 8 GB of storage and a 7-inch screen, making it three times more expensive than the $79.99 base-model Kindle.

Because the waterproof Kindles are larger than previous models, Amazon is also releasing a new set of water-resistant covers, which will double as handy reading stands. "Kindle Oasis" can be immersed in up to two meters of fresh water for up to 60 minutes.

Amazon.com introduced Wednesday a waterproof Kindle ebook reader long-awaited by enthusiasts, the latest in a string of consumer devices from the online retail giant this year.

The e-reader offers massive book selection, and over 30,000 free eBooks and 2 million paid eBooks. Waterproofing has always been an omission on Kindle e-readers, but the Kindle Oasis will now let people read at the beach or in the bath tub without worrying about damage, Amazon said.


Dave Limp, Senior Vice President, Amazon Devices, said, "Ten years ago, we introduced our first Kindle with the mission of delivering any book every written in 60 seconds or less".

"Kindle Oasis" has a battery life measured in weeks and has fast-charging capability that allows it to go from zero to fully-charged in less than two hours. The Kindle Oasis can be connected to wireless headphones or wireless speakers via Bluetooth. In India, it's partnering with Vodafone for this, but the company says it will wireless coverage in "over 100 countries and territories". Starting today, customers can pre-order the new Kindle Oasis for $250. The 8GB model is priced at Rs 21,999 while the 32GB model (WiFi + free 3G) is priced at Rs 28,999. The regular model is Wi-Fi only and packs 8GB storage, whereas the mid-tier version has 32GB internal memory and costs $280.

Amazon is offering a pre-order bundle of the waterproof Kindle, which includes a power adapter and leather cover of your choice, along with the Kindle Oasis.
