Amazon Introduces New Kindle 'Oasis' With Waterproofing

Amazon is finally coming out with a waterproof Kindle. The company has just announced an updated Kindle Oasis that features the largest display of any device in the lineup at 7-inches. Adaptive auto brightness is included, which was absent on the prior Oasis.

With this Oasis model, Amazon stepped away from its typical plastic-centric design. It has an aluminum design that allows it to be waterproof. It can survive up to two meters of water for 60 minutes.

This model also costs less than its predecessor at $250. Preorders are being accepted and shipments will begin in the coming weeks.
