Kindle Oasis: Amazon Launches a Water-Resistant E-Reader

Kindle Oasis: Amazon Launches a Water-Resistant E-Reader

Instead the new device has six weeks of battery built into it, according to Amazon, and a range of new covers including water resistant fabric options.

The Kindle Oasis is available for pre-order in Canada on Amazon.ca for $389.99, with the device ready for shipping on October 31.

The Kindle Oasis features a 7-inch, 300 PPI display and fits over 30 percent more words to the screen, which means users have to turn fewer pages.

The second generation Kindle Oasis also acknowledges consumer love for physical books in its design, which Amazon says has been ergonomically developed to feel like the spine of a book when resting in the hand.

Australian government: Constitution can't be taken literally
Mr Windsor has not ruled out running in the by-election that would be triggered if Mr Joyce was ruled ineligible by the court. Section 44 (i) states Australians who are also citizens of a foreign power can not sit in the Australian parliament.

Amazon refreshed its Kindle lineup with a new Oasis e-ink reader, larger and slightly more advanced than the original model. Will you buy the latest e-reader from Amazon? At $349.99, the most advanced Kindle Oasis comes with 32 GB of storage and free cellular connectivity, which will allow you to purchase, download, and stream new books on the go. 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. You should be warned, however, that the Kindle does not have speakers, yet it does have Bluetooth connection enabling you to connect to another device.

In the USA, the company is offering a 4G model for the cellular variant, but in India, it's offering a Wi-Fi + free 3G model, where the company pays for the 3G connectivity enabled by Amazon Whispernet. The default storage capacity is 4GB and can be increased to 8GB. In India, it's partnering with Vodafone for this, but the company says it will wireless coverage in "over 100 countries and territories". Amazon has also launched a new cover for the Kindle Oasis, which also converts into a stand.

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.
