Kobo brings the eReader back to beaches, pools and baths

Aura H2O goes on sale in Australia and New Zealand

Two months to the day and Kobo has delivered on its promise to release the Aura H2O in Australia and New Zealand.

The Aura H2O is the world’s first eReader to come with tough credentials. Its IP67 rating certifies it against both dust and water a metre deep for thirty minutes.

Most of the specifications found in the H2O have trickled down from its Aura HD predecessor, such as its 1430x1080 resolution display, two-month battery life and 1GHz CPU. Water- and dust-proofing makes it possible to take the competent eReader to beaches or baths.

The Aura H2O earned praise in <i>Good Gear Guide’s</i> review.

Australians can purchase the eReader for $229 from stockists including JB Hi-Fi, Angus and Robertson, Bookworld and Myer in Australia.

New Zealanders will be able to buy the Aura H2O from Noel Leemings and JB Hi-Fi for $299.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
