Summer means a chance to take a break from the everyday, whether you’re exploring new cities or unwinding outside with a great beach read. In fact, according to a recent survey commissioned by Kindle and conducted by Kelton Global, worldwide, 60% of people say reading is a favorite vacation activity.
We want to make it easy for people to enjoy great books wherever they are. That’s why we’re excited to announce the all-new Kindle Oasis—featuring our best Paperwhite display ever. The new Kindle Oasis features a 300ppi display with a new color adjustable front light. Now, you can customize the color tone from cool to warm to easily transition from daytime to a comfortable nighttime reading experience. You can even schedule the screen warmth to update automatically with sunrise and sunset.
“The all-new Kindle Oasis includes everything customers loved from the previous generation, including the large 7-inch display, waterproofing, and Audible—and now we’re making it even better. We’re adding a color adjustable front light so customers can read with a warmer tone that’s customizable to their preference to easily transition from daytime to nighttime reading,” said Kevin Keith, Vice President, Amazon Devices. “Kindle is designed to create a sanctuary reading experience, and the all-new Kindle Oasis exemplifies this—whether you’re reading poolside on vacation or in in the comfort of your bed."
The new Kindle Oasis comes with the next generation of e-ink technology for fast page turns. Built for hours of reading comfort, it features a thin and light ergonomic design for one-handed reading, and dedicated page turn buttons. The Kindle Oasis is designed to withstand accidental drops and splashes, whether you’re reading in the bath tub, hot tub, or pool. It is IPX8 rated to protect against immersion in up to two meters of fresh water for up to 60 minutes.
Like all Kindle devices, you can read for weeks on a single charge with this new Kindle Oasis so there’s no need to pack another charger in your suitcase.
While three quarters (75%) of readers say that the best place to get lost in a good book is on vacation, universally, the number one reason people are reading is relaxation (68%). So, whether traveling the world or enjoying a staycation, readers are turning to books to experience their next big adventure and broaden their horizons.
