Nerdful Things – Kindle Oasis Announcement
I love e-books. I love real books too, but nowadays it is quicker and easier (and more convenient) to read on the go on my phone, tablet or my laptop (2-in-1). Amazon have recently added the Oasis to their site, available to pre-order now and it’s due for release on October 31 – a good way to get Halloween off to to a spooky start by blitzing some horror classics!
So what is it and what does it do?
Below are some key points from Amazon’s description:
Our largest, highest resolution display-7″ and 300 ppi, reads like printed paper, without glare, even in bright sunlight.
The first waterproof Kindle (IPX8), so you are free to read in even more places.
Now with Audible you have access to over 200,000 audio titles. Pair with Bluetooth to take the story with you anytime, anywhere.
Thin and light ergonomic design with dedicated page-turn buttons and adaptive front light so you can read even more comfortably for hours.
Keep reading-a single charge lasts weeks, not hours.
Enjoy twice the storage with 8 GB. Or choose 32 GB to hold more magazines, comics, newspapers and audiobooks.
Massive selection, low prices-over 5.5 million books including latest bestsellers, Kindle exclusives and more.
Prime members read for free with unlimited access to a rotating selection of more than a thousand titles.
I have to admit, the device blows me away. Especially the Wi-Fi + 3G edition – FREE 3G, which will be a huge game changer as there’s no need to pay a mobile network (Amazon provides it for free). This could very well set the trend for other portable devices and is well worth the extra cost without having to have a monthly fee on top!
I won’t re-hash all the details as they’re all available on the Amazon page.
I think I’ve found something to add to my Christmas list this year!
