This morning Amazon went “live” with it’s newest Kindle, available now to pre-order.
Improvements seem to be mostly the hardware: It’s thinner and lighter. It’s shaped differently, giving you a wider side on one edge to hold it. It comes WITH a cover, and that cover acts as an additional charging source for the Kindle, giving it the battery power of months (yes…months).
It’s pricey, and so it will be interesting to see if this model flies off the shelves ….
I’ve been reading on the Kindle Voyage, and it hasn’t been my happiest experience. The improvements on the new Oasis seem to have addressed the shortcomings of the Voyage. The price tag gives me pause, but I’m such a new-tech-stuff nerd ………. I just might……. (and if I do, I’ll be sure to let you know. 🙂 )
Reviews are coming out, and they are looking good.
This short video, made by my favorite Kindle podcaster, Len Edgerly, examines the new Oasis.
