New – Kindle Oasis E-reader with Leather Charging Cover – Black, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi), Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers

Unlike Any Kindle You’ve Ever Held

Reimagined to be our thinnest and lightest Kindle ever

New—Designed to feel as light as paper, Kindle Oasis is over 20% lighter and 30% thinner on average than any other Kindle. The handgrip tapers to an ultrathin 0.13″ display so you can read comfortably for hours.

New—Kindle Oasis combines our strongest cover glass and a featherweight frame infused with metal using structural electroplating, ensuring it is lightweight while also resilient enough to take anywhere you want to read.

Kindle Oasis

Perfectly balanced ergonomic design

New—A tapered ergonomic handgrip shifts the center of gravity to your palm, to rest in your hand like the spine of a book. Perfectly balanced for one-handed reading, Kindle Oasis enables you to get lost in your story.

New—Comfortably turn the page with either the touch display or dedicated page turn buttons located on the front of the handgrip. Whether you choose to read with your left or right hand, Kindle Oasis automatically rotates the page orientation to match.

Read More. Charge Less.

Highest resolution Kindle with enhanced lighting

Kindle Oasis features a high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp, laser-quality text—all on the same 6″ display size as Kindle Voyage. A redesigned built-in light features 60% more LEDs than any other Kindle, increasing the consistency and range of screen brightness for improved reading in all types of lighting. Kindle Oasis guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eyestrain.

Dual-battery charging system delivers months of battery life—our longest ever

New—Charge the device and cover simultaneously while snapped together and plugged in. When on the go, the cover will automatically recharge the device, giving you months of combined battery life. Plus, a new hibernation mode minimizes power consumption when your Kindle is inactive, extending battery life to its fullest capacity.

Premium leather cover

New—The removable charging cover is made of high-quality leather and comes in your choice of black, merlot, or walnut. The cover opens like a book and fits closely around the bezel, waking Kindle Oasis when opened and putting it to sleep when closed. Twelve magnets form a secure attachment between device and cover, while still easy to detach when the lightest possible weight is desired.

Kindle Oasis

No glare in bright sunlight

Unlike reflective tablet and smartphone screens, the micro-etched glass screen is crafted to eliminate glare and feel like paper to the touch.

Won’t tire your eyes in the dark

Kindle Oasis guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—so you can read comfortably without eyestrain. Adjust your screen’s brightness for great reading in any light.

Charge monthly, not daily

Kindle Oasis won’t leave you tethered to an outlet. A single charge can last up to six weeks (based on a half hour of reading per day with wireless turned off and the light setting at ten).

Kindle Oasis

Read comfortably with one hand

Lighter than a paperback, comfortably hold Kindle Oasis in one hand for those times when you can’t put the book down.

Lose yourself in a book

By design, Kindle Oasis is purpose-built for reading and creates a sanctuary so you can lose yourself in a book. Unlike tablets and phones, Kindle doesn’t distract you with social media, emails, and text messages.

  1. Phil (not) in Mågnoliá

    I’ve loved both my Paperwhite and Voyage – is the Oasis worth the additional cost? UPDATE 7/24/16: After using my Oasis for almost 3 months, I thought I would add a brief comment to my original review. I have settled on using the Oasis for reading in bed, where it’s lighter and easier to hold and I prefer the page turn button style. For my reading elsewhere, for example if I want to read while eating, I use my Voyage w/origami case to hold it upright. I can read the same book using both Kindles since they stay synch’d to one another, and it’s given me basically the best of both worlds, at least for my style of reading. The Voyage with cover almost seems clunky – bulkier and heavier – compared to the Oasis, but when it’s sitting on a table it hardly matters. I have to say that I’m fortunate in being able to afford both, and the new base model Kindle that I recently picked up is not yet getting much use, even though much of my reading is in lighting conditions where the non-illuminated display works just fine. My original review follows.———Amazon released the first Kindle in November of 2007. Eight and a half years later, the Oasis model is the 8th generation Kindle and the third evolution of Kindle with built-in illumination. The price of $300+ was a bit of a shock, but I ordered mine as soon as it was announced on April 13th. I then spent the next two weeks reading what was available online describing the features and benefits and asking myself whether or not I had made the right decision. Now that it’s finally been released and I have it in my hands, how different is it, and is it worth what appears at first to be a very high price?(My Kindle experience: I purchased my first Kindle (a first generation Paperwhite), when it was first released in Sept 2012. I purchased the Voyage when it was first released, in Sept 2014. I use my Kindles every day. I’ll compare this new Oasis to both of those models.)I’ve decided to give the Oasis 5 stars based upon the design and size which I find exceptionally nice. I have no issues with the display on my Oasis although I’ve read a few early reports that do indicate some units may have display problems. The price may be reason for some people to consider this a less than 5-star product. For me personally I use my Kindle every day, it’s a constant companion, and I have found no faults with this model and enough improvements from the Voyage to make it preferable.The price of the Oasis is high enough that this is not a casual purchase for most people, myself included. As I write this review, the regular (non-illuminated) Kindle can be purchased for as little as $59.99! That is remarkable. The Voyage and the latest Paperwhite are both exceptionally good e-readers, provide essentially the same display and almost the same reading experience, and both are considerably less expensive. Amazon has developed a product line range of four models at different price points so that one or another are probably affordable for just about anyone. They also have tried to provide enough differentiation in features from one model to the next to make the price differences worthwhile. It’s like buying a new car – do you want to get the most affordable car for basic transportation, or are you willing to spent more money to get a high-end sound system, leather upholstery, and navigation?I’ll go through each aspect of the Oasis and try to explain what is different about it, and what is not. In the end, some people will consider the Oasis as money well spent, and others will be happy with what they already have. And that is how it should be!My thoughts in much more detail follow.AMAZON’s DESIGN OBJECTIVES FOR THE KINDLE OASISIn reading about the Oasis since it was announced, one thing became clear: Amazon wants this new Kindle to ‘disappear’ into your hands, so that you forget about the Kindle and get lost in the book you are reading.Their objectives were therefore light weight and thinness above all, along with improving their already premium display if possible and providing the best possible battery life. I think that it’s important to keep those design objectives in mind when evaluating the Oasis.My own impressions were probably influenced by knowing these things ahead of time, but I must say that the Oasis is very significantly lighter and thinner than any of my other Kindles, and I like the style with the wider side for gripping. The display is superb, following the already excellent Voyage, with an improved illumination design.INITIAL (NON-CUSTOMER) REACTIONS TO THE OASIS (MOSTLY CRITICAL?)Early articles and reviews seem to have been more negative than positive. Most have mentioned one or more of the following points as concerns:– High price– Same 6” display size as other Kindles (some people want larger display)– No audio capability…

  2. I sent this one back / And if you eat- or couch-read / The Voyage works best

  3. A superb e-ink reader, but is it worth the money? Okay, if you don’t want to read my whole review, I’ll summarize it right here: The Oasis is the most technologically advanced e-ink reader that Amazon – or anyone else, for that matter – has produced to date. But is it worth $290 for the least expensive version (wi-fi only with ads)? In my opinion, the answer is no, not when the very capable Paperwhite is available for $100 (at the time I’m writing this). But I’m sure that there is a market for the Oasis, probably for the techno-geeks and gadgeteers like myself who love trying new products like the Oasis, and serious readers who want the absolute best possible experience in reading. But for the typical reader, I just don’t think the Oasis adds enough to the reading experience to be worth the high price, especially for those who already have a Paperwhite or Voyage.For reference, here’s a brief comparison of the Oasis with the Paperwhite and the Voyage:Oasis (2016)—————————–Size: 5.6″x4.8″x0.13-0.33″ (thickness varies)Weight (wi-fi version): 4.6 ounces (without battery case)Display: 6″ diagonal, 300 pixels per inch, 16-level grayscale, LED front-litStorage memory: 4GBPage turns: Touchscreen plus page turn buttonsNumber of fonts: 9Display lighting: Manually adjustable front-lighting (10 LEDs)Third Generation Paperwhite (2015)——————————Size: 6.7″x4.6″x0.36″Weight (wi-fi version): 7.2 ouncesDisplay: 6″ diagonal, 300 pixels per inch, 16-level grayscale, LED front-litStorage memory: 4GBPage turns: TouchscreenNumber of fonts: 8Display lighting: Manually adjustable front-lighting (4 LEDs)Voyage (2014)——————————–Size: 6.4″x4.5″x0.30″Weight (wi-fi version): 6.3 ouncesDisplay: 6″ diagonal, 300 pixels per inch, 16-level grayscale, LED front-litStorage memory: 4GBPage turns: Touchscreen plus PagePress (haptic sensors)Number of fonts: 9Display lighting: Adaptive light sensor (automatic) plus manually adjustable front-lighting (6 LEDs)When I received the Oasis, the setup was quick (although you do have to go through a brief tutorial), and after downloading some of my books from the Amazon Cloud and adjusting a few settings to my liking, the Oasis was ready to go.The most obvious difference in the Oasis compared to the older Kindles is the different thickness on one side of the reader. The greater thickness (0.33″) accommodates the battery and most of the electronics. It also makes the Oasis much easier to hold one-handed (which the designers clearly intended), especially with the reduced weight of the Oasis (4.6 ounces versus 7.2 ounces for the Paperwhite and 6.3 ounces for the Voyage). For hand-holding the Oasis, Amazon has done a real service for us southpaws by making the Oasis ambidextrous. You can rotate the Oasis 180 degrees to hold in the other hand, and the screen display remains upright, thanks to an accelerometer that senses the rotation. To turn pages, you can use touchscreen swipes or use the buttons on the side. And these are actual raised buttons, not the flush haptic sensors like those in the Voyage. I’m a swiper myself, but I know that many people miss the buttons, so for them it’s good news. And you can reprogram these buttons if you want to reverse the page forward/page back functions.The Oasis manages the weight reduction with an electroplated polymer frame. I won’t pretend to know what that means, but the reduced weight is very noticeable for anyone used to earlier Kindles.As oddly shaped as it is, the Oasis fits nicely into a custom-designed cover that has a built-in auxiliary battery that with the Oasis’s own battery will give much more reading time than any previous Kindle. For now at least, Amazon is only selling the Oasis with the leather battery cover, which is one reason for the high price of the Oasis. Note that the cover includes the magnet that activates the very useful Auto-Wake feature of the Oasis.The front-lighting of the Oasis is quite different from the Paperwhite, which has 4 LEDs located at the bottom of the screen, or the Voyage, which has 6 LEDs at the bottom of the screen. The Oasis has 10 LEDs, and they’re located on the side of the screen. Amazon says this gives brighter, more even lighting, although I can’t see a lot of difference from the Voyage. But many people complained about both the Paperwhite and Voyage, objecting to the faint shadows that extended into the text. (The Paperwhite did have noticeable shadows, although at the time I got mine, it was shortly before I had cataract surgery, so I didn’t notice them until after the surgery.) Note that the Oasis does not have adaptive lighting that automatically adjusts the…
