RE: Kindle Oasis

Crikey, almighty, the price!

I like the idea of the cover but can't see anything that makes me want to ditch my Paperwhite.

RE: Kindle Oasis

What does the £100 more than a Voyage cover?
I thought the Voyage was rather expensive, but this is ridiculous.

RE: Kindle Oasis

I'm wondering if the 'Tapered Design' takes into account left handed people?

RE: Kindle Oasis

I read that if you want to use it left handed, you just turn it upside down.

You too, huh? Smile

Lol, Joo, if only that were possible. I'm another left -handed reader (and writer).

But as Jonty says, at that price it can stay on the shelves. When my beloved Kindle baby finally gives up the ghost, I'll be saving for the Voyage. Bon Voyage!

I believe the e-ink is 80% gold and 20% platinum in order to give it a nice, warm glow.

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