Amazon Kindle Oasis Takes Reading to the Next Level | Mashable

19 Comments



Paper back books are frustrating they’re heavy
pages tear easy you can’t read them with one hand and you have to fold pages to keep your
place. Amazon solved the problem in 2007 with the first Kindle e reader its full of components
batteries and e ink and you turn the page by refreshing the screen super cool but people
were not satisfied so Amazon kept making it smaller and lighter in the meantime a bunch
of herertics starting reading on their phones and tablets. That’s so weird you’re reading
on your phone. What?! I said it was so weird! In any case this device looks nothing like
any Kindle e reader that’s come before it. It’s also a dig at real books. because the
reading area is almost at 3.4mm paper thin. there are these two buttons on the thicker
side. they are here for page turning. Also, the Kindle lets you adjust fonts and font
sizes with your fingers! I know book readers you’re staggering right now. But here’s the
knockout punch. Kindle Oasis comes with its own light. Sorry I did forget to mention one
thing this costs $289.99. Wow!

    Kobo Aura H2O: It's cheaper. You can load 3rd party readers onto it with a simple hack. It has a SD card slot to expand the memory, and most importantly you can view EPUBs. An open format used by many libraries.

    Also you don't have to pay extra to 'NOT' view ads.

    Are you looking at the same thing I'm looking at? A black plastic device, with an e-ink screen? Uh, looks just about exactly like the e-readers that came before it.
