Ding ding ding ding ding! Amazon has finally made it to announce the new Kindle Oasis, which is to be released at the end of October.
You can preorder the device now, but remember it won’t be available for shipping until Halloween.
Don’t ask me why. I’m as clueless as you are about their weird choice of release date.
Anyway, the New Oasis is actually quite a cool device!
First, it has a 7” screen. Yes, Amazon is finally taking a break from their endless list of 6” screen devices: Kindle Basic, Paperwhite, Voyage, and original Oasis. This larger screen means more words on one page, and thus less page turning.
And while there is a slight increase in weight, the new Oasis is still lighter than a Paperwhite. Thin, broad, and lightweight, it feels very much like a small book. The screen resolution stays the same: 300ppi, ensuring sharp and clear text and pictures. (more…)
