The Perfect Pool-side Companion


Ladies and Gentlemen please welcome to the world, the all-new Kindle Oasis E-Reader. The first ever waterproof (IPX8) kindle on the market, complete with anti-glare and Audible so that you can listen to the world’s largest collection of audiobook on the move. Boasting a huge battery life cycle of weeks, weighing in at a crazy 194 grams, this one-handed beauty is the perfect companion any time, anywhere. The Kindle Oasis has an even bigger and better screen than before – 7-inch glare-free screen with an adaptive front light making it perfect to read in any condition.

What makes the Oasis an effortless use, is the page turning buttons located on the side of the device, within perfect reach for the user’s thumb – a lovely compliment to the design and the human-centered design approach taken here by Amazon. The rear of the Oasis has a tapered cut-away shape which splits the E-Reader into two thicknesses – 8.4mm and an alarming 3.4mm. This cut-away was not just an aesthetic choice from Amazon’s hardware team but this shape gives way to the slim, form-fitting cover options available for the Oasis and is designed to closely wrap the bezel like a glove. Snapping securely into place magnetically – wake up your Kindle or put it to sleep by simply opening or closing the cover.
