The waterproof Kindle has finally arrived. It’s been 10 years since Amazon has started selling Kindle. But “waterproof” hasn’t appear on its list of incremental technological advancements until now. The company just announced a new version of its popular e-reader that builds on last year’s Kindle design and now has an IPX8 waterproof rating.
The new Kindle Oasis — the same name as last year’s premium Kindle — has been changed in size, it used to be a 6-inch screen, now it’s a 7-inch screen. It has an aluminum back, which gives it a more premium look and feel than the Kindles with soft-touch plastic.
