Kindle Oasis with Leather Charging Cover

Kindle Oasis. Viva La Revolution.......


Looks like Amazon have finally listened to the masses and done something about the horrible "hand hold" positions of the old kindle and totally redesigned a new one, that not only looks good, but is easy to hold for any length of time.

No more sore thumb pads from gripping the narrow edges tightly to prevent it falling out your hand.​ Life is tough as a reader donchaknow?

Kindle Oasis Stats

​Taking note of the picture below (click the picture if you want to go to the listing on Amazon), you can see that the first thing that is obviously different is the size and shape.

The actual screen size remains at 6 inches, but it's slightly shorter and slightly wider than the older kindles and most notably, a hell of a lot thinner (see picture further below). Here's a quick comparison between the Kindle Voyage and the Kindle Oasis.


Starting at $219.99

  • 6 LED's + adaptive page turner
  • Touchscreen + PagePress
  • 300 ppi
  • No Charging Cover
  • Battery Life = Weeks
  • Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + Free 3G
  • Wi-Fi: 6.3oz (180g). Wi-Fi + 3G: 6.6oz (188g)
  • 6.4" x4.5" xo.30" (162 x 115 x 7.6mm)
  • Screen Size = 6"
  • Glare Free Screen
  • Storage = Thousands of Books


Starting at $309.99

  • 6 LED's + adaptive page turner
  • Touchscreen + Page Turn Buttons
  • 300 ppi
  • Charging Cover Included
  • Battery Life = Months
  • Wi-Fi or Wi-Fi + Free 3G
  • Without Cover Wi-Fi: 4.6oz (131g) Wi-Fi + 3G: 4.7oz (133g)
  • 5.6" x 4.8" x 0.13-0.33" (143 x 122 x 3.4-8.5mm)
  • Screen Size = 6"
  • Glare Free Screen
  • Storage = Thousands of Books

As you can see, it's lighter, thinner, has a way longer battery life and comes with a charging cover as well. It's also, not surprisingly, more expensive.

Hey?, what's the point of bringing something new out if you can't charge more for it?

But when you consider the improvements of this model over the last, I doubt there'll be many who won't be willing to pay the extra price.

And speaking of improvements, check out how slim this little baby is.

Thin Kindle Oasis

​I can hear thumbs everywhere breathing a sigh of relief.

Some of the other features the Oasis has include;

  • Optimized font technology, 16 level grey scale
  • 4GB of on-device storage
  • Fully charges in less than 3 hours using a USB cable
  • Supports public and private wi-fi networks (subject to connection standards)
  • Quick user guide (in box), Full user guide on device
  • Total package includes Kindle Oasis, Leather charging cover, USB cable and Quick user guide

 All up, it's not a bad improvement over the old devices and should prove a big hit when it hits the shelves in late April (probably later for people outside the USA).
