Do you need a new ereader for your summer vacation? Amazon just introduced a new Kindle Oasis that you might want to consider.
From $ 249.99 to the 8GB special offer version (also on the lock screen), the new Kindle Oasis is pretty steep for an ebook reader. But the previous generation is a PCMag Editors' Choice product, and this new model promises to be even better and offers with an added benefit designed for night reading.
As the previous generation, now marked for $ 1
Its "thin and light ergonomic design" and dedicated side buttons make it perfect for one-handed display, Amazon says. Running out of battery should not be a common problem; It promises to allow "weeks" reading on a single charge.
If you like to read in the bath, jacuzzi or pool, the new Kindle Oasis is a good option. It is IPX8 classified, which means it can withstand immersion in up to 6.5 feet of fresh water for up to one hour.
The new Kindle Oasis is available for pre-order now in graphite and champagne gold color options; It is slated to begin shipping on July 24th. For a limited time, those who book it will receive six months of Kindle Unlimited free. Usually $ 9.99 per. Monthly, Kindle Unlimited offers access to over one million e-books plus magazines and audio books.
PCMag will get a full review of the new Kindle Oasis in the near future.
Amazon also sells the covers for the new Kindle Oasis, which opens as a book, automatically wakes up the device when it is opened and puts it to bed when it is closed. There are several options, including blue, red and charcoal waterproof fabric covers for $ 39.99; black and merlot leather cover for $ 49.99; or a "premium leather cover" for $ 64.99.
