On Tuesday, Amazon announced its newly designed Kindle Paperwhite.
The new Paperwhite has a couple of standout features, including water-resistance, so you can finally read comfortably poolside. The company says its reading device can withstand being submerged in two meters of fresh water up to 60 minutes - past Paperwhite tablets were not water-resistant.
Amazon says the new Paperwhite is the thinnest and lightest Kindle ever designed.
Here are the rest of the specs:
The new Kindle Paperwhite costs $129.99 and will available for pre-order starting on Tuesday. Anyone who purchases the device will get six free months of Kindle Unlimited, which gives readers access for millions of books in the Amazon's Kindle Store.
It is unclear when it will be available in South Africa, but starts shipping in the US on November 7.
