RE: Kindle Oasis

I'd rather use my Nexus for regular reading. I can check here and see to my email. Do a little writing if I wish. Google things. A device so pricy which is just s reader isn't charming the cash out of my pockets.

It certainly appeals to the "techie" in me and as soon as it is available in the UK I shall be attempting to acquire Smile

RE: Kindle Oasis

For 50 quid less, I could get an iPad!

I have a Paperwhite that I hardly use (preferring the versatility of my iPad Mini). I'm certainly not going to throw £270 at more drawer-fodder!

RE: Kindle Oasis

I was gutted when I initially saw the announcement as I'd purchased a Voyage on Monday. However on looking at the specifications, I'm happy with the Voyage. No cover is worth £100

According to Amazon: Whether you choose to read with your left or right hand, Kindle Oasis automatically rotates the page orientation to match.

Unfortunately it can't rotate the position of the buttons. Angry

For that price, no way. Give me my trusty iPad which does everything for me and has a bigger screen. Unless of course Amazom wish me to test one for them and keep it!

RE: Kindle Oasis

I think I treat my kindles like my cars. I keep running them until they break and then go back into the market. Hopefully my paperwhite will see me through for another few years. Lord knows what they'll have come up with by then! I suspect we'll be reading sheets on the inside of our eyelids when the time comes.
Thanks,

Now I like most techie thingy's, my KK3 it's still as good and as new as the day it was delivered, my Paperwhite is the same and I've read 4 books this last week... Love it.. My Nexus 7 is also as good as any with colour pictures to boot. Over the last 6 months I've bought 3 x iPhones as gifts, an iPad Air 2 with sim and an iPad Pro as a treat for myself. Price didn't come into it when I made these purchase (all from my sideline winnings anyway)... But £270 for a book reader!! is someone having a laugh? Hold out guys the price will be down to £120 by the end of the year. This has just got to be Amazon's biggest boo boo to date. There's no way I'll be even considering a purchase, that £270 will make me £1500 in 3 weeks and I don't need an offshore account I pay taxes on my pensions and my other incomes are tax free.
£250-£500 per month totally risk free! tao does it!!!  http://bonusbagging.co.uk/r/bb13802

... and still no text-to-speech. I know I'm pretty much the only person who loved it, but they could at least squeeze it into the rolls royce model. I'm actually loving my modestly priced Kobo, so not tempted.
