Otterbox is known for its ultraprotective iPhone cases. Now M-Edge, which specializes in Kindle cases, is doing the same for the Kindle, with an announcement that it will sell the first waterproof Kindle case this spring.

The company says the Guardian is made of molded plastic and protects your Kindle in all water environments up to 1 meter deep, whether you're in the pool, ocean, or just soaking in the tub. Your e-reader is totally sealed in the case, but you can still access all the buttons through "flexible sealed button cutouts." Even better, the case turns your Kindle into a flotation device and allows you to read hands-free in the water.

According to M-Edge, "Three internal buoyancy chambers provide distributed flotation to keep Kindle afloat and upright for in-water reading." Nice.

We look forward to testing this case out later this year. No word on pricing yet.
