        Although I often read by the pool, I have never felt the need to read in the pool.  I can see how this would be useful if you have dropped it in the water.

            It's nice for folks who like to read in the bath or while floating on a raft in a pool. And for folks who are worried about accidental spills or putting the reader in a bag with a bottle of water (as one might do when backpacking, or even just in a daily-use messenger bag).

              It should make a splash! Considering how many stories I've read of people getting blue ears after carrying their smartphones into airplane lavatories, I have to think this is a stealth market.

              Sounds great for camping, canoeing/boating, or just lazying by the pool/lake.

                Interesting. I like reading in the hot tub at night. Presently, I have waterproof cases that I use for this but had semi-ruined my Nook Tablet (everything seems to work right except the wifi) when I dropped it and found the case/cover hadn't zipped completely. I also camp quite a bit and keep my reader in a case in the event of rain. A reader like this would be handy for those purposes and eliminate the minor bit of optical distortion induced by the cases.
