The Kindle Oasis is a travel-friendly winner

by James Wilkinson

Amazon’s all-new Kindle Oasis, featuring a large 7-inch, 300ppi display with a new colour-adjustable front light, is an ideal companion for your next business or leisure trip.

Whether you are soaking up the Hawaiian sun or relaxing by the fire after a day on the slopes in Niseko, reading the Kindle has never been easier.

You can now customise the colour tone from cool to warm as you transition easily from daytime to a comfortable nighttime reading experience, and you can even schedule the screen warmth to update automatically with sunrise and sunset.

Amazon says “quite simply, it’s our best Paperwhite display ever” and they are right.

It is priced in Australia at AUD$399 for the 8 GB version, AUD$449 for the 32 GB version and AUD$559 for 32GB WAN.
