Kindle Oasis Waterproof IPX8
For those who want to enjoy a good book by the pool or while bathing without fear of damaging their eReader, Amazon introduces the new Kindle Oasis. It’s your first waterproof electronic reader.
Tablets and phones are great for basic activities, but they do not offer the best reading quality. The best option for this purpose are e-Readers, which are specially designed for reading e-books. Thin and compact, they can be used for several days on a single charge, and they have non-reflective screens that do not tire the eyes.
Amazon has just launched its new Kindle Oasis waterproof, a 7-inch e-book reader with an excellent design exterior, integrated support for audiobooks, and what is novelty, waterproof.
The Kindle Oasis has a 7-inch 300-ppi high resolution screen, larger and thinner (0.13 inches) than its predecessor, the Oasis of 2016. The new screen fits 30 percent more text, and changes faster than any other Kindle.
Kindle Oasis Waterproof 2017
It has an ergonomic design, which Amazon says was created to rest in the palm of your hand as if it were the back of a book, and its custom aluminum plate weighs only 194 grams, ie 10 grams lighter than the Kindle Ultra-compact paperwhite.
The new Oasis screen is protected by Amazon’s “toughest protective glass”, which saves buying additional protectors. It has built-in light sensors that adjust the brightness automatically according to ambient lighting conditions. I
n this sense incorporates the advantages of the eReader Kobo Aura One, which made it unique, until now. Also, it has a fast charge battery that offers a full charge in less than two hours.
The most notable feature
And one that is first presented on a Kindle, is that the Oasis is completely waterproof. Amazon says it is rated IPX8, which offers protection from immersion in up to two meters of water for 60 minutes. This was also an advantage of the line Kobo aura One and kobo H2O.
The Oasis comes with Audible, which is Amazon’s library with more than 380,000 audiobooks, magazines, newspapers and radio programs, which can be transmitted wirelessly via the Bluetooth connection to speakers or headphones. New accessibility options feature custom letters, inverted black-and-white color schemes, and various other functions.
The new Kindle Oasis waterproof is priced at $ 250 dollars per 8GB, which is twice the capacity of the previous model
