The Amazon Kindle Oasis Waterproof Ebook Reader is the latest offering by the online retail giant. It features a bright 7-inch display with a pixel density of 300ppi. The new version of the Kindle Oasis comes with a six-week battery life.
The waterproof tablet comes with an IPX8 rating, which means it can withstand immersion in over 1-metre of water. Now, you can take your favorite books to the bathtub or beach. Connectivity options include Bluetooth.
You can also integrate the new ebook reader with Amazon’s Audible service to stream audio books to wireless headphones or speakers. While you still need to buy ebooks and audiobooks separately, you will be able to access all your books on a single device. Amazon has also updated its WhisperSync system to work with both types of book files. Users will be able to pick up right where they left off last, no matter what device they were using (whether reading or listening).
Unlike the US, the company is not offering a 4G model for the cellular variant in India as yet. The 3G connectivity in the Wi-Fi + free 3G model is enabled by Amazon Whispernet. The company has partnered with Vodafone for this feature. Amazon claims that it will offer wireless coverage in over 100 countries and territories.’
