Amazon has unveiled a new e-book reader called the Kindle Oasis. The new Kindle is priced at $290, which is approximately Rs. 19,300. The company says that the device is over 20% lighter and 30% thinner than any other Kindle and weighs about 133 gms. The Kindle Oasis comes with a 6-inch display with a resolution of 300 ppi, which is the same as the Kindle Voyage. However, the new device uses 10 LEDs for the built-in light as compared to 6 LEDs used in the Voyage.
The Kindle Oasis also comes with a leather charging cover and adds to the battery already built into the device. The cover will automatically charge the device and Amazon claims that users will get months of combined battery life. The Oasis also comes with a hibernation mode that minimizes power consumption when the device is inactive. The device also comes with dedicated page turn buttons. Last week, Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos had posted a tweet in which he had teased the launch of the Kindle Oasis.
