Amazon has just unveiled a revamped Kindle Oasis, which promises a personalised experience of reading with pages that look like paper, a battery that lasts for days, and an automatic adjustment of illumination for the best image in the place where you are and at any time of the day.
For lovers of reading, any excuse is good to enjoy a good book, either taking advantage of the heat of the summer to relax by the sea or a pool, or in the night to the light of a sunset or a campfire. And what better way than to do so with a device that fits your conditions, custom lighting, and that not only can accommodate all of your favorite titles but also has pages that look like those of a paper book.
That seems to be the intention of Amazon and its new Kindle Oasis, that comes with a renewed screen Paperwhite. The device has a wide screen of 7 inches and 300 dpi, with a new front light adjustable color. That means that you’ll be able to customize the colour tone from cold to warm, to easily spend the day at a comfortable reading experience at night. You can even set up your Kindle for the tone to change automatically with the sunrise and the sunset.
Kindle Oasis comes with the next generation of e-ink technology, which allows you to flip the page quickly. It is designed to offer comfort, an ergonomic design, thin and light for reading with one hand, and dedicated buttons for turning the page.
Promises to be a device-resistant, prepared to withstand falls and accidental splashes, and in addition has a rating IPX8 to protect against immersion up to two meters in the water for up to 60 minutes. Like all Kindle devices, its battery is long lasting and allows you to read for weeks on a single charge.
Six months of Kindle Unlimited includes free: with access to millions of ebooks, audiobooks, magazines, comics, children’s books, and more. Also comes with built-in Audible, and the members of Prime will have access to more than a thousand books, stories audible, magazines, and more included with your membership.
It is not a bad idea to protect your investment, so we are also available slipcovers that open like a book, and you wake up automatically the device when opened and put it to sleep when closed.
