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 print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
