From the bath and the swimming pool to the beach and back again, Amazon’s all-new waterproof Kindle Oasis is a book lover’s wet dream (see what I did there?).
Beyond its largest, highest-resolution Paperwhite display, Kindle Oasis features a thin and light ergonomic design complemented by battery life measured in weeks, not hours. Also, fast-charging allows it to go from no battery to fully-charged in less than two hours.
The all-new Kindle Oasis has a larger 7-inch, 300 ppi display that fits over 30 percent more words per page. The crisp, laser-quality text reads like paper and eliminates glare even in bright light. Kindle’s design shifts the centre of gravity to your palm, so the device rests in your hand like the spine of a book.
With an ultrathin 3.4 mm display and weight of just 194 grams, Kindle Oasis is incredibly lightweight, plus its strong cover glass and new aluminium back make it the most durable Kindle to date. The IPX8 waterproof design is rated to protect against immersion in up to two metres of fresh water for up to 60 minutes.
Kindle Oasis also features a tonne of smart and social features including Whispersync voice activation, Smart look-up via Wikipedia, vocabulary builder and access to the Goodreads community. There are over 1 million books in the Kindle Store which can be overwhelming, so why not start with The Subtle Art of Not Giving A F*ck by Mark Manson or PornBurger: Hot Buns and Juicy Beefcakes by Mathew Ramsey.
The all-new Kindle Oasis will be available from AU$389 for the 8 GB Wi-Fi model and AU$529 for the 32 GB model with free cellular connectivity. You can pre-order now. For added protection and hands-free reading, consider a premium leather cover in Midnight, Saddle Tan or Merlot.
