Amazon’s Kindle series has been one of the bestselling e-readers in the market ever since it was introduced back in 2007. To keep their flame going, another refresh has been introduced on the high-end ‘Oasis’ series, though it’s a fairly minor one.
The ability to shift into the warmer, slightly yellow tone automatically or manually when needed, from a cooler, bluish tone is the main update. This is especially helpful for nighttime reading as it slowly shifts into the warmer range of colours to help you get a better night’s rest.
The rest of the features are simple updates over the former model. It’s thinner and lighter to hold with dedicated page-turning buttons on the side-grip, IPX8 rated water-resistance with up to 2 meters for 60 minutes underwater and a sharp resolution of 300 ppi on a 7” glare-free screen, the latter of which are mostly similar to the previous iteration. All these make for a truly enriching reading experience.
But of course, coming to the price, these are on the steeper side as they are the premium offerings of the Kindle family —
- The 8GB version with WiFi costs ₹21,999.00 whereas the 32GB version with WiFi costs ₹24,999.00.
- There’s also the 32GB version with WiFi and free 4G which would set you back by ₹28,999.00.
It is now available for pre-order here, with an expected release date of 19th August in India, while it has already been out in certain countries since 24th July. You get the first e-book for free on pre-ordering.
