Amazon's High-End Kindle Oasis Is Sleek, Sharp and Pricey
Jeff Bezos probably wasn't pleased to see his surprise spoiled this week, but ebook fans still have reason to get pumped. Amazon just pulled back the curtain on its new premium reader, the Kindle Oasis, and it's the slimmest and sleekest model the company has put out yet. Of course, with a price starting at $290 (£270), it's also one of the most expensive. As Amazon tells it, all the decisions were made with one goal in mind: to let the hardware itself almost disappear from view so that readers can lose themselves in their stories.
