Amazon Waterproof Kindle Oasis

Interesting news that Amazon is selling a waterproof Kindle, and that previously Jeff Bezos used Kindles in a one-gallon Ziploc bag in the bathtub.

I worked on the Cloud backend for the discontinued Ricoh eQuill waterproof business tablet. There are myriad uses for a waterproof work tablet:

  • hotel room staff maid and minibar reporting
  • fairground employee and mechanical supervision notes
  • healthcare biological samples recording and hospital charts
  • since there’s no resale market for a serial-numbered industrial tablet, theft is reduced.
