One of Amazon’s worst kept secrets is now official… Amazon’s newest Kindle is the Oasis. Their thinnest and lightest Kindle ever features 4GB of storage and a 6-inch 300 ppi high resolution display with 10 LEDs that evenly illuminate the screen to allow for comfortable viewing in any environment from total darkness to full sunlight. The Kindle Oasis has a hand grip with dedicated page turning buttons on the right side that gives this eReader an unusual tapered asymmetrical shape which reminds me of Amazon’s first Kindle that we reviewed back in December of 2007. If you’re not a fan of buttons, you can still turn pages by taping the touch screen. The Kindle Oasis has battery life that lasts for as much as two months (eight weeks) when used with the included leather charging cover. Priced at $289.99 for the WiFi version or $359.99 for the 3G version, the Kindle Oasis will begin shipping on 4/27/16. For more info and to order visit Amazon.
