In the whole ‘traditional paper book vs. e-paper book’ debate, neither side scores too many points when it comes to being waterproof. But thanks to M-Edge’s new Guardian Case, owners of the latest generation 6 inch Kindle can take it in the bath, the shower, even the pool, without worrying about the consequences of mixing electronics with water.
It’s made of molded plastic and is available in 5 different color tints, and thanks to its dual-hinge, integrated gasket and four-latch closing system, the case remains watertight in water up to 1 meter deep. Three internal buoyancy chambers ensure the Kindle never sinks deeper than that on its own, and flexible sealed cutouts allow for full access and functionality of all the navigation buttons and keyboard. Pricing info isn’t available just yet though, since the Guardian isn’t expected to be available until sometime in the Spring of this year.
