Amazon is often ahead of the game and now it's making big strides to keep its popular Kindle eReader ahead of the competition. Introducing Kindle Oasis, the most radical redesign of the top-selling Kindle since the removal of the keyboard five years ago.
There's no denying how sleek and absolutely cool this new eReader looks. It has the typical Amazon 6-inch screen with a built-in light for night reading. It's 3.4 mm at its thinnest point, which is less than half the thickness of the latest iPhone 6s. However, it grows to 8.5 mm on one side for easy holding. It has two buttons to turn pages and a touchscreen, making it simple to use.
The downside to the thinness, however, is that the Oasis has a considerably shorter battery life than its Kindle siblings. However, Amazon makes up for this by providing a much larger bonus battery that is housed in the stylish leather case. With both batteries combined, you'll get an astonishing nine weeks of battery life. Wow!
While all of these changes sound enticing, the price tag might scare you away. It is the most expensive Kindle yet with a base price of $290 and a top price of $380. Although, if you choose the top price option, you'll get a 3G cellular connection and no lockscreen ads, which is a nice added bonus.
