Pre-orders for the new device start on November 15 on Amazon India. With a larger 7-inch, 300 ppi display, waterproof design, the all-new "Kindle Oasis" is our most advanced Kindle ever. For waterproofing, the Kindle Oasis is IPX8 rated, which means it should withstand immersion in over 1-metre of water.

Amazon has unveiled their new Kindle device, the second-generation Oasis.

Amazon has introduced a new version of its Kindle e-book reader - Kindle Oasis.

The Kindle's rivals, including Kobo, have had water resistant versions of their e-readers since 2014, but have failed to disrupt Amazon's dominance of the ebook market. Waterproofing has always been an omission on Kindle e-readers, and will now let people read at the beach or in the bath tub without worrying about damage, Amazon said.

Amazon has also increased the number of customisation options available on the Oasis, including more type faces, a greater level of boldness gradation and font sizes and the ability to left-align text to better match the design of paper books.

Spanish PM gives Catalonia leader 5 days to clarify stand
Anti-independence voters largely boycotted the ballot and there were reports of irregularities. Catalan officials say nearly 90% of voters backed independence with a turnout of 43%.

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. This new Kindle comes with a 7-inch display and also is the first waterproof model introduced by Amazon.

The all-new Kindle Oasis is available for pre-order for Rs 21,999 for the 8GB model and Rs 28,999 for the 32GB model (WiFi + free 3G).

Amazon now offers a 4G model for the cellular variant in the USA, but in India the company will be offering a Wi-Fi + free 3G model.

It'll also include a new Audible app that allows users to link the device with a pair of Bluetooth headphones and listen to audio content on the go. In India, it's partnering with Vodafone for this, but the company says it will wireless coverage in "over 100 countries and territories". The $44.99 fabric cover is available in Charcoal, Indigo, or Sandstone, and the $59.99 leather cover comes in Merlot, Midnight, and Saddle Tan.
