As far as handheld devices go, the e-book reader has had its fair share of supporters as well as detractors. Some say reading on an electronic screen takes away the joy of reading an actual book. But, there is no denying the fact that an electronic reading device has far more pros than cons. You could have a huge collection of books at your disposal at any time in a handy little device. Amazon immediately understood the potential of such a device and introduced the Kindle, a light, and thin device with an e-ink screen that could simulate the effect of reading a book as closely as possible.

The Amazon Kindle devices were never known for their design, which was simple and basic so that the focus could be on the content than on the screen. With the new Kindle Oasis, they seem to be letting go of this philosophy. The Kindle Oasis looks much better than any previous models. It is much lighter and slimmer than the Voyage.

What’s more, to finish the premium design philosophy, Amazon has added a leather protective cover at the back that doubles as a backup battery. This is an excellent design change. The cover comes in three colours and connects magnetically to the back. It can be removed and attached with absolutely no fuss. While you have the option of using the device without the cover, you would only get about two weeks of battery life. With the cover, however, you can get a whopping 9 weeks of battery life.

Another area that the device has been upgraded is the screen. The screen has about 60% more LED lights which significantly improves brightness. Pages can be easily turned by touching the screen or using the two page-turn buttons on the device. There is a slight hump at the back which makes it easy to hold the device in one hand comfortably such that your thumb rests on the page-turn button. Even the left-handed people can operate the device with an equal ease as it is equipped with an accelerometer that allows you to use it with either hand and rotate the screen and turn buttons.

The device is powered by a 1 GHz processor and comes with 4 GB of built-in storage. The device now weighs 4.6 ounces and is extremely thin at 3.4 mm at its thinnest point. That’s really something, isn’t it?

The new Kindle Oasis is an excellent e-reader from Amazon and scores high in all categories. The only questionable feature is the rather steep price. For a device that is not waterproof, Rs. 23,999 seems to be quite high, what do you think?

A dentist by profession, a writer by passion with a penchant for photographic predisposition; pardon my free-flowing phraseology for its lack of phonetic profundity, for I primarily partake in portraitures; both in peppery parlance and phenomenal photography, and not the least by way of fixing those flickering flashes of the fondest of facial expressions.
