Pre-order Amazon’s 2019 Kindle Oasis
Amazon today announced yet another update to the Kindle Oasis, their top-of-the-line e-reader. This year’s edition is virtually the same as the 2017 model, but for one new feature: the display now sports an adjustable warm light that you can adjust the “temperature” of (from white to amber), so it’s comfortable to read in any lighting.
Like the previous model, the 2019 Kindle Oasis has the same 7″ 300ppi e-ink display and IPX8 waterproofing, plus an adaptive front light and support for Audible audiobooks. Really, the one weird choice they made this year was to stick with micro-USB charging rather than switching to the faster USB-C. Ah well.
This latest Kindle Oasis releases on July 24th, 2019 and can be pre-ordered now, starting at $250 and going up from there based on whether you want 8GB or 32GB of storage, whether to include or exclude “special offers” (ads) on your device, whether you prefer the “Graphite” or “Champagne Gold” color, and whether or not you want cellular connectivity.
