Kindle Oasis (2016) E-reader + Free Charging Cover + Free Australian Accessories KIT
The Kindle Oasis is over 20% lighter and 30% thinner on average than any other Kindle. The handgrip tapers to a 0.13"-thin display, so you can read comfortably for hours. The Oasis features a strong 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.
Balanced Ergonomic Design
Balanced for one-handed reading, the tapered ergonomic handgrip shifts the center of gravity to your palm, resting in your hand like the spine of a book. You can easily 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.
High-Resolution Display with Enhanced Lighting
The Kindle Oasis features a high-resolution, 300 ppi display for crisp, text. A redesigned built-in light features 60% more LEDs than any the Kindle Voyage, increasing the consistency and range of screen brightness for improved reading in all types of lighting. The 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
Read more, charge less. 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 hibernation mode minimizes power consumption when your Kindle is inactive, extending battery life to its fullest capacity. It fully charges in less than 3 hours from a computer or adapter via the included USB cable.
Leather Charging Cover
The removable charging cover is made of high-quality leather. It opens like a book and fits closely around the bezel. The cover wakes the Kindle Oasis when opened and puts it to sleep when closed. Twelve magnets form a secure attachment between the Oasis and cover, but it is still easy to detach when the lightest possible weight is desired.
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.
Sharp, Dark Text
You can enjoy text that reads like a printed page. All fonts have been hand-tuned at the pixel level for maximum readability.
Take and Share Notes
Add margin notes that you can edit, delete, or even export from your device to your computer. Share highlighted sections and meaningful quotes on Facebook, Twitter, and Goodreads, and see passages frequently highlighted by other Kindle readers.
