Kobo Aura H2O
What is it? Who doesn’t love reading a relaxing book in the bath? If you do all your reading on an ebook reader these days, though, this can be a somewhat risky proposition. One soapy slip and your Kindle is driftwood. Kobo’s Aura H2O solves this problem by being an ebook reader that’s waterproof. It’s so simple! When’s it due? The end of September. Why are we excited? How did no one think of this before? Seriously: it’s not just the bath scenario. If you take your ereader everywhere with you in a bag, there’s a good chance it could get soaked in the rain. If you take it to the beach, it could get splashed. We’re surprised the first ever Kindle didn’t feature this, to be honest. Still, hopefully this will be the first of many. And it certainly beats keeping your ebook reader in a freezer bag or similar in an attempt to keep it dry.
