Kindle fans, rejoice. Amazon has listened and is finally bringing a waterproof ereader to market - nearly 10 years after the internet giant debuted the first Kindle device. It's also bumped up the number of LED backlights from 10 to 12, which should make for a clearer reading experience, and there's now an ambient light sensor that can adjust the screen brightness to your environment.
The Kindle has a battery life which can last for weeks and the screen size measures upto 7-inches. Alas, there's no 3.5mm headphone jack here, which is a shame because there's plenty of space for the connection, despite the slender chassis. Simply tap the top portion of the screen while reading to launch the menu, look for the headphone icon in the bottom right-hand corner and, assuming you've previously paired the Oasis with your speakers, headphones or vehicle audio system, playback will begin at the top of the page you're now reading. The 32GB version will also be available with a 3G connection for [$280], which can be used within more than 100 countries.
On Kindle's tenth anniversary, Amazon boldly unveils its "most advanced" e-reader ever, naturally priced higher than many mid-range Android tablets out there.
Thin and light design with an aluminium back, it features a unique ergonomic shape, so you can read comfortably for hours.
Perhaps the coolest feature is that the new Oasis has Audible built-in, letting you listen to a collection of audiobooks over Bluetooth headphones or Bluetooth speaker (there's no headphone port or integrated speaker).
There are little tweaks to the software, as well, including more font size gradations and the ability to bold any font. It is robust enough to cope with sea water splashes or immersion in pool, hot tub or bath water with an IPX8 rating, meaning it can withstand being dunked in up to two metres of fresh water for up to an hour. Support for audio books also justifies the 8GB of storage standard (twice as much as before), notes Gizmodo. In addition to the 8GB model, there's a 32GB version ($280) and a 32GB version with a cellular connection ($350).
