Amazon introduces a new waterproof Kindle Oasis with bigger screen


Amazon has announced a new variant of the popular e-reader range called Kindle. The devices are available to pre-order on Amazon India, and will go on sale on November 15th.

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.

This number is based on a 1 to 5 scale where 1 indicates a Strong Buy recommendation while 5 represents a Strong Sell. The company has grown sales at a 4.00% annual rate over the past five years, putting it in the low growth category.

Apart from being the company's first waterproof Kindle e-reader, the Kindle Oasis is also Amazon's thinnest and lightest Kindle e-reader ever.

"Ten years ago, we introduced our first Kindle with the mission of delivering any book every written in 60 seconds or less", said Dave Limp, Senior Vice President, Amazon Devices, in a statement. For waterproofing, the Kindle Oasis is IPX8 rated, which means it should withstand immersion in over 1-metre of water.

Say goodbye to your waterproof cases, those damp books and those pesky electrical faults, the new Kindle Oasis has IPX8 waterproofing on its exterior, and it really is better than ever. Will you buy the latest e-reader from Amazon? Now, the all-new Amazon Kindle has come with waterproofing feature which has always been a requirement for Kindle e-readers. You can also purchase water-safe fabric covers for your new Amazon Kindle Oasis in shades of Sandstone, Charcoal, and Indigo, all at Rs. 2,999. The new Kindle Oasis is priced at Rs. 21,999 for the Wifi-only 8GB model and Rs. 28,999 for the 32GB model that comes with WiFi + free 3G.

The new Oasis also supports audiobooks, allowing you to connect Bluetooth headphones or speakers to listen to your books wherever you are. In India, it's partnering with Vodafone for this, but the company says it will wireless coverage in "over 100 countries and territories". The base model - without 4G capability and with 8 GB of storage - costs $250 (roughly Rs. 16,290). The more premium leather covers in Merlot and Black options come for Rs. 3,999. The Kindle Oasis is now available for pre-order.

REAL ID enforcement grace period extended
Several of the 9/11 hijackers had obtained state-issued driver's licenses in the months leading up to the attack. Legislation enacted earlier this year set that deadline for getting the state fully up to speed on Real ID.
