Normally the launch of a new Kindle from Amazon would mean a bargain price for a device that is almost as good as a conventional tablet. Yet on this occasion Amazon have launched the Oasis, it is part of the Kindle family of devices and although that sounds good it does have a price of £270! To many people the price is going to be the talking point, forget the six inch screen, thin body, Wi-Fi and long lasting battery.
Designed to feel as light as paper, Kindle Oasis is over 20% lighter and 30% thinner on average than any other Kindle. The handgrip tapers to an ultra-thin 3.4 mm display so you can read comfortably for hours. Kindle Oasis combines our strongest cover glass and a featherweight frame infused with metal using structural electroplating, ensuring it is lightweight while also resilient enough to take it with you everywhere you go.
The Kindle Oasis measures up at 143 mm x 122 mm x 3.4 to 8.5 mm, it weighs in at around 238 grams and it has a starting price of £269.99, with optional extras to choose from. For more details on the Oasis or to pre order one go to the Amazon
