Kobo announced a new e-reader, the Aura H20 which is the world's first E Ink waterproof e-reader, as far as I know. This e-reader sports a 6.8" E Ink Carta display (265 PPI), and it will survive up to 30 minutes in water up to one meter deep.

The Aura H20 will cost $179 when it launches next month in the US, Canada and Europe.
