HZO Technology Featured on Pocketbook's Premiere eReader

Draper, UT October 2018

HZO provides IPX7 rated protection on the new PocketBook Touch HD 3 – the company’s flagship eReader model

Draper, Utah – October 09, 2018  HZO Inc., the water protection standard for eReaders, is proud to apply its powerful waterproofing and corrosion-resistant technology to PocketBook’s latest premiere eReader – Touch HD 3.

The device was unveiled today at Frankfurter Buchmesse in Frankfurt, Germany, with Water Protection by HZO as a marquis feature. Unlike other electronic devices and tablets that promote water protection but then list disclaimers, like requiring users to fasten a rubber door on ports and headphone jacks securely, the HZO Protected PocketBook Touch HD 3 eliminates the risk of damage associated with conventional mechanical seals that can bend, break or be improperly installed by end users.

“PocketBook continues to innovate and set the bar for unparalleled performance in the eReader market, especially regarding water protection,” said Stephen Gold, CCO at HZO. “Consumers can trust that when it says HZO Protected, their next generation eReader will stand up to the toughest elements.”

With a large internal memory of 16 GB, PocketBook Touch HD 3 users may store a digital library and audiobook collection twice as large as previous PocketBook devices. The PocketBook Touch HD 3 supports 17 popular book formats and four graphics formats (JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF).
