The e-reader is now up for pre-order on and will start shipping from November 13.

The updated version of the Kindle Oasis has a six-week battery life, and a brighter 7-inch 300ppi screen, slightly larger than the previous model. The waterproof Kindle e-readers are rated IPX8, which means that they can survive sitting in two meters of fresh water for one hour.

What is more interesting is the fact that this is the first Kindle Oasis device which is waterproof.
