Available to start shipping on April 27, 2016, Amazon has finally launched the pre-order page for its next generation of eReader. Dubbed Kindle Oasis, the eReader features a new ergonomic design to better support right and left handed readers, longer battery life, and an enhanced lighting system that is meant to make the eReader readable in any environment.
The Oasis also comes with a cover included in the price this time and the cover is offered in black, merlot, and walnut colors. To buy the Oasis, you have to jump through an order customization process that includes choosing case cover, connectivity and special offers. The case, of course, is part of the price, but you can choose a 3G option for $70 extra and remove ads (special offers) for additional $20.
- Display: 6” with built-in light, 300 ppi
- Weight: Wi-Fi version is 4.6 oz while the 3G version is 4.7 oz. The cover adds an additional 3.8 oz.
- Size: 5.6" x 4.8" x 0.13-0.33". Cover: 5.7” x 4.9” x 0.07-0.18”
- Storage: 4 GB
- Battery: a single charge with last up to eight weeks for someone who reads a half hour per day
Pricing starts at $289.99 before you start adding 3G options and paying to remove ads. Personally, I really like the special offers Amazon provides.
