Kobo Aura H2O

Do you wish you could read a book while your youngsters splash around in the pool?

Want to take your eReader to the beach, but are afraid of getting it full of sand or wet?

Would you like to read while soaking in the tub?

If you answered Yes to any of the above, Kobo has an eReader for you!

The new Kobo Aura H2O is the first premium eReader to have a waterproof and dust proof design. Be aware that waterproof does not mean that you can take it down with you when you scuba dive. Waterproof means (a) not more than thirty minutes and (b) not deeper than 1 meter (approximately 3 feet).  If you go deeper, the water pressure will force water into the unit. Also, the port cover has to be closed to prevent water or dust or sand from getting into the unit.

The Aura H2O has a 6.8 inch touch screen utilizing E Ink technology. This technology reduces glare and makes the screen appear to be an actual book, thus enabling you to read in the bright sunlight. The ComfortLight will allow you to continue to read at night or while soaking in a tub with candlelight.

Kobo claims that the battery charge will last two months if you read 30 minutes a day with WiFi turned off.

The unit has 4 GB of internal memory and can be expanded with up to a 32 GM micro SD card.
