How many of you know what it’s like to be relaxing in the bathtub, reading your Kindle, when calamity strikes and you drop your device into the tub? Well, Amazon has heard your complaints and responded by creating a new affordable Paperwhite Kindle that is waterproof.
Amazon released details of its latest version of its popular Paperwhite device via its website today. And it has some pretty awesome specs for those that are looking to buy a Kindle device in the lower price bracket. This will make the new Amazon device more competitive to the likes of its higher-end Kindle Oasis and may even help to drive down the competition opened up by the recent announcement of Walmart joining with Kobo to offer their devices across their stores, according to Ars Technica.
