Amazon introduces waterproof 7-inch Kindle Oasis with Audible integration, metal body

The Kindle Oasis is available now for pre-order at a price of United States dollars 249.99 for the 8GB model and USD 279.99 for the 32GB model, rising to USD349.99 for the LTE-enabled 32GB version.

The new Kindle Oasis features a high-resolution Paperwhite display, thin ergonomic design and IPX8 waterproofing. Pre-orders for the new device start on November 15 on Amazon India. According to Amazon, the 7-inch display of the next-generation Kindle Oasis features a 300 pixel-per-inch (ppi) density, which should fit over 30% more words per page. This direct sequel to the Kindle Oasis first introduced in 2016 with a 6-inch display is thus considerably bigger. You should be warned, however, that the Kindle does not have speakers, yet it does have Bluetooth connection enabling you to connect to another device.

Amazon has announced a new variant of the popular e-reader range called Kindle. The service has 250,000 audiobooks available for download on an ad-hoc or subscription basis, but one proviso of the integration is that customers buy both the ebook and the audiobook of the same book. The new Kindle also has improved accessibility features including the ability to invert the screen from black text on white screen to white text on a black screen, and the ability to increase the size of key menus and the home screen for easier navigation for partially sighted readers. Unlike the original Kindle Oasis that promised two weeks of power, the new model should offer about six weeks of power via the built-in battery. The all-new Kindle Oasis comes with 8GB storage, which has twice the storage as the first Kindle Oasis and can hold thousands of titles. The 3G model comes with a default storage capacity of 32GB.
