Before the phablets and tablets were launched, eBook readers were in fashion, and the new Kindle Oasis is an attractive extension of that trend.
Many have considered the passion for eBook readers to be gone. In reality, the sales for this type of gadgets are large enough to justify a new model, but also, to be a top device with impressive specifications and a price to match.
It could be the most expensive eBook Reader ever, but whether this qualification is true or not, certainly the new Kindle Oasis is the most expensive ever sold by Amazon Kindle. Oasis is available in a single version of $289, the most expensive Kindle e-reader after Voyager, the second premium device in this class with a price tag of $199. The 3rd position is occupied by Paperwhite, priced at $120 while the ordinary latest generation of Kindle costs only $80.
Returning to Kindle Oasis, the gadget was detailed by Jeff Bezos in a dedicated conference where we found that it is absurdly light and the user experience is close to reading a paper book. Kindle Oasis is 20% lighter than any other Kindle ever and 30% thinner. It has a bigger edge on one side so it can be easily kept in the hand, and the backlight display has a thickness of only 3.3 millimeters for extended “no stress” reading sessions. The new Kindle Oasis has a 6-inch display, like the Kindle Voyager, but behind the panel with a native resolution of 300ppi, there are 60% more LEDs.
