PocketBook 640 Is A Water Resistant E-Book Reader

pocketbook-aquaSo, we do know that the smartphone market has seen some waterproof handsets in recent memory, where Sony has certainly taken the mindset of waterproof devices being bulky and ugly looking, turning that idea over its head with a svelte chassis and desirable design, starting with the Xperia Z which they then followed up with encore performances via the likes of the Xperia Tablet Z, et al. A waterproof smartphone makes perfect sense, especially if you happen to live in a tropical country and need to capture a photo when it rains all of a sudden. Or how about a day by the river, where you and your family have a fun picnic moment, and would like to get wet playing with Supersoakers? A waterproof e-book reader, however, does raises eyebrows as there might not be such a huge market for it. This has not stopped e-book maker PocketBook from introducing their latest water-resistant model that comes with a 6” E Ink display.

The PocketBook 640 will sport a Pearl E Ink touchscreen display, and after conversion, it should not cost more than $200 thereabouts. Another name for the PocketBook 640 would be the PocketBook Aqua, where this is made possible courtesy of its dustproof and water-resistant case. I suppose when you want to spend some “me time” in the bath while reading your favorite book in e-book format, why not use the PocketBook Aqua and be less careful, compared to a Kindle or an equivalent while worrying whether it might slip from your hands?
