Amazon Has An All-New, Waterproof Kindle

Amazon's New Kindle Oasis Syncs Audible With Kindle And Safely Works In The Bath

(Waterproof for real: "can withstand immersion in up to 2 meters of fresh water for up to 60 minutes.") It's a handsome piece of news and a vast technological improvement for every Kindle user who reads by the pool or on the beach or, let's face it, in the bathroom.

"Its thin, light, and waterproof design allows readers to stay engaged in the author's world in even more places than ever before", Dave Limp, senior vice president for Amazon Devices and Services, said today in a news release.

The screen also benefits from extra LEDs for a more even light and adaptive brightness.

Plus, as mentioned previously, the internal battery is larger, delivering up to six weeks of stamina without the need to attach an external battery cover, not that you get the option anymore; there are no longer any contacts on the rear to enable the feature.

Ending this power grab will uphold the letter of the law and restore cooperative federalism with the states. Supreme Court issued an unprecedented stay against the rule in early 2016.

The aluminum back and soft touch plastic on the front and sealed tight, the 2nd gen Oasis can survive under 2m of water for an hour. No, Amazon didnt resurrect the speaker or 3.5mm headphone jack that the QWERTY Kindles had. The backside feature a larger hump, which is created to provide users a firm grip when reading with one hand.

The new Kindle Oasis has a few other upgrades on its now defunct and eponymous sibling.

The Oasis has a 7-inch 300-dpi screen (one inch larger than the previous version) and includes a free Audible account.

It's the second Oasis-branded Kindle, following in the original's footsteps. I've never seen that before on an E-Ink display - Amazon tells us they had to tweak some custom hardware to make it work. Amazon says that its new device has the highest resolution screen on any Kindle. If you want a big screen above all else try the Kobo Aura One. This is the first waterproof Kindle.

Australia's 37-20 win over Argentina in Mendoza moved them into third place in the rankings, leap-frogging Ireland and South Africa.

In addition to the physical changes, the Oasis also supports Audible playback. The new feature will be available through a software update when the new Oasis starts shipping to customers.

The new Oasis starts at £229 for the model with 8GB of non-expandable storage, rising to £259 for the 32GB version and £319 for the 32GB model with a cellular connection.

Amazon has announced the all-new Kindle Oasis, which it dubs the most advanced Kindle ever.

The new Oasis' design is similar to that of the older model: It has the same sloped frame that tapers from one edge to the other, with the thicker side resembling the binding of a book. It begins shipping to customers at the end of the month, on October 31.
