Are there any Android e-ink readers that are waterproof?

I read papers in the bathtub, and would like to instead read on a e-ink device. But are there any Android e-ink readers that are waterproof?

Obviously the reader wouldn't go under water, but it should be resistant to steam/splashes.

Depending on your location, you could check Tolino's Epos or Vison 4 HD which have the HZO nanocoating waterproofing.

BTW, that's why having your location set is a good idea since it makes answering this type of question much easier.

The other option is to put your ereader into two sealed plastic bags. Lots of people do that with their readers while soaking in the tub or by the pool.

I've updated my location now.

This nanocoating seems just like what I am looking for. Though are there anywhere you could just send your tablet and have it coated?

Although not optimal, this could be an option, but would the stylus work then? I will read and write.

Not that I know of. There is an American company that sells waterproofed Kindle Paperwhites but from their web page, it's not a nanocoating since they mention removing voids from within the device and state it's IPX-8 to 64 meters. It reminded me of one company that used to waterproof by filling the device with epoxy making servicing impossible.
