Amazon Unveils Kindle Oasis

It’s been a while since we’ve seen any Kindle updates from Amazon. In fact, the last major revamp happened in 2014. Today, Amazon expanded their line of e-readers with the release of the Kindle Oasis. Like the rest of the Kindle line, this model features a 6″ monochromatic screen. However, this one is dramatically lighter at a mere 4.2 ounces. It also boast a battery that lasts months (yes months) while the others last weeks. Additionally, the e-reader has a new ergonomic design that is supposed to make it much easier to use. Unfortunately, it isn’t cheap. The Kindle Oasis will sell for $289. It is available for pre-order today and will begin shipping later this month.
