Amazon debuts waterproof Kindle for better reading in the bath

Pre-orders for the new device start on November 15 on Amazon India.

The all-new Amazon Kindle Oasis is the upgraded version of the Amazon Kindle Oasis and comes with a brighter 7-inch glare-free display with 60 percent more LEDs than the Kindle Voyage and Kindle Paperwhite and a high resolution 300 ppi (pixels per inch) display. Also inbuilt is Audible, Amazon's standard feature which lets you switch between reading and listening modes more easily.

Amazon refreshed its Kindle lineup with a new Oasis e-ink reader, larger and slightly more advanced than the original model. The device was the slimmest and lightest e-reader by the brand at the time. The all-new Kindle Oasis comes with 8GB storage, which has twice the storage as the first Kindle Oasis and can hold thousands of titles.

Kindle Oasis is the latest addition in consumer devices from Amazon this year. Amazon has also launched a new cover for the Kindle Oasis, which also converts into a stand.

In the U.S., 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.

An Audible app has been built in, though the device doesn't feature any speakers, meaning users will need to stream audio books through Bluetooth to headphones or speakers. The service has 250,000 audiobooks available for download on an ad-hoc or subscription basis, but one proviso of the integration is that customers buy both the ebook and the audiobook of the same book. The more premium leather covers in Merlot and Black options come for Rs. 3,999. The company is partnering with Vodafone for 3G connectivity in India.

The 32GB (Wi-Fi + free 3G) version of new Kindle Oasis costs Rs. 28,999, while the base model which is without 3G capability and comes with 8GB of storage costs Rs. 21,999. Moreover, with Kindle Unlimited offer Amazon claims to have over 1 million eBooks available at starting price of Rs 149 per month.
