Introducation of the New Kindle Oasis 10th Generation

Kindle Oasis 10th Generation is the most-advanced e-reader ever constructed. With a thinner and lighter design, Kindle Oasis (10th Gen) features an ergonomic handgrip for the best comfort experience and can be easily rotated to turn the page as you switch hands.

If you prefer to read lying down, then Kindle Oasis (10th Gen) can be easily flipped over to switch from one hand to another.

The front of the device is made entirely of glass and flush with the bezel for an uninterrupted design so you can lose yourself in reading without distraction.

The all-new, high-resolution 300 PPI display features crisp, laser-quality text that reads like real paper. Unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes.

Kindle Paperwhite (10th Gen) guides light toward the surface of the display with its built-in front light—so you can read comfortably without eyestrain or a bright screen shining in your eyes.

Kindle is designed to perfectly fit your hand. We know that the device is one of the most important parts of your life, so it set out to make a premium device that would perfectly complement the finest reading devices.

Kindle Oasis (10th Gen) is now waterproof with no covers required—the first waterproof Kindle Oasis ever. With an IPX8 rating, it withstands immersion in up to two meters of freshwater for up to 60 minutes. And unlike any other waterproof Kindle, you don’t need to attach covers or fiddle with pieces—it is ready whenever you are.

Highlights of the new features:

1) Ergonomic hand-grip design makes Oasis easier to hold and balance on the device, so you can read comfortably for hours without fatigue.

2) The 7-inch Paperwhite display features a sleek flush glass front with an ideal shape to easily turn the pages of your books one-handed when holding with either hand. With 300 PPI for crisp, laser-quality text.

3) IPX8 waterproof rating withstands immersion in up to 2 meters of fresh water for 60 minutes, so you can read comfortably anywhere.

4) The all-new Audible app lets you listen on Bluetooth headphones or speakers—including speakers in the bedroom, home theatre system, car, and more. An adjustable warm light for reading comfort at night.

5) New Bookerly is the exclusive font designed for reading on digital screens, with a focus on crafting beautiful page layouts and offering better character spacing. With hyphenation, kerning, intelligent justification, ligatures, and drop-cap support.

6) Enjoy twice the storage with 8 GB or 32 GB internal storage so you can keep more content on your device and free up space for photos or audio.

7) With eight-week battery life and 30 minutes of reading, a single charge lasts longer than any other Kindle e-reader ever created.
