Kindle has evolved its product line to make it better over the last eight generations, ever since the launch of its first tablet 'Kindle Fire' in 2011.

 

With its innovative and creative design aesthetics, the new Kindle Oasis has become thinner, lighter and more capable than its predecessor, the DNA India reported.

 

"To lean back and read for hours, you need a sanctuary from distraction," said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO.

"We want Kindle to disappear, and Kindle Oasis is the next big step in that mission. It's the most advanced Kindle we've ever built—thin and ultra-lightweight, it gets out of the way so you can lose yourself in the author's world."

 

Thinnest and lightest body

The new Oasis tablet is touted as the thinnest and lightest Kindle ever, given its incredibly sleek display that weighs barely 4.6 ounces and measures just 3.4mm in thickness. The Kindle Oasis features a featherweight polymer which is structurally reinforced with metal electroplating, and hence the device is capable of extreme ruggedness, despite being incredibly light.

 

Extreme portability for long and comfortable reading

The Oasis is also said to be extremely portable, owing to its absolute gravity-friendly design that allows the tablet to rest in balance on your palm, even if you are using a single hand for reading. The built-in accelerometer adjusts the page-orientation to match with your choice of dexterity (left or right hand).

 

Dual-battery design for extended battery life

Kindle Oasis incorporates a new dual-battery system wherein the battery in the cover starts recharging the tablet automatically as soon as you connect them. Both the device and cover can be charged simultaneously while both are connected together and plugged into the power outlet.

 

You can also save power using the new hibernation mode which kicks off when the Kindle is idle.
