Many have been enjoying the Amazon Kindle while commuting to school or work. Compared to a tablet like the iPad, the Kindle is definitely easier on the eyes as you are staring on different screen technology with an electronic ink.
Amazon has just announced a newcomer to their Kindle line, which is called the Amazon Kindle Oasis. And this time, they have another trick up their sleeve to give you an even better reading experience.
Kindle Oasis has a 7″ screen, 300ppi (Pixels Per Inch) and now comes with a new colour-adjustable front light. This allows you to change the screen’s colour tone from cool to warm when you are reading at night on your bed, for example.
But if you hate manual tinkering, you can also schedule it to automatically change its colour tone as the sun goes down. Amazon claims that the Kindle Oasis is their best Paperwhite display ever.
Kindle Oasis has an IPX8 rating which allows itself to be submerged in the water for 60 minutes (up to 2 metres). While there’s no reason for you to throw a Kindle into a bucket of water or carry it swimming, you might accidentally drop one while reading next to a swimming pool.
The all-new Kindle Oasis will start shipping on July 24 and is available for pre-order today at Amazon Australia, JB Hi-Fi, and Officeworks for AU$399 (8 GB), AU$449 (32 GB) version and AU$559 (32GB WAN).
