Do you consider yourself a die – hard electronic book reader? If the answer is a resounding yes, you might like to know the Kindle Oasis , the e – book reader Amazon’s premium. This product is available in a Wi-Fi version.
The Oasis represents a further step in the evolution of the series of e-book readers Amazon, which began on 19 November 2007 with the launch of the first Kindle. Much has happened since then, while the physical keyboard no longer exists and dimensions, as shown in the video, have nothing to do with the latest products of the company.
This is the Kindle outside – Amazon kindle oasis
This device does not do it justice photographs that can be published on web pages, and it is not until one has it in hand you can not judge the product: a is generated positive bewilderment , as it happened to me. First you have doubts, then it is confirmed that the design has not been the result of a spontaneous outburst full.
The Kindle Oasis is on average lighter by 20%, having achieved weight of 131 grams in Wi-Fi version and 133 grams for the 3G version. Do you think it is much? Nothing of that. In thickness, it is also 30% thinner than any other book reader Amazon, although it is a figure that should be considered by reference to the thinnest area: there will be a thicker lateral 8.5 mm.
On the front face, reinforced glass, stands out above all the Paperwhite screen E-Ink 300 dpi with 16 gray scales and integrated reading light. Have you noticed that the name “Kindle” no longer appears in the bottom frame? Amazon has reduced the maximum margins, although one of them has been more broadly in order to include some physical buttons for page turning.
In order to improve the quality and definition of the screen, they have been moving the LED lights to the side: there will be a total of ten, thanks to the new location, provide more light. Are you to read day or night? In my case barely I give a point of light when I read at night, enough for my eyes to see the text optimally.
To turn the product one of the important developments of this book reader will be appreciated.One side is thicker than the rest of the surface which, by brand, is intended to mimic the spine of a book. What can I say based on my experience? In practice it seemed to me that it favors the grip when the Kindle Oasis is held with one hand, but basically moving into that area most electronic components: with it also shifts some of the effects of weight, which contributes product poise in our hand.
The surface has a special paint that gives softness to the touch, while also giving a touch premium to the device. Why is there a special connection 5 – pin? To use the e-reader with a carrying case.
In the upper or lower side, depending on how the product is gripping, you are the port micro USB charging and the button to turn on or turn off this device . On the front face, accessible to the thumb, will be the physical buttons to move forward or backward between pages, although it is an action that can be done with a side act directly on the screen.
Do you want to hold the Kindle with the other hand? The screen automatically orients to suit us and so continue to enjoy reading: how important is that we always have the buttons within reach of the finger.
Case matching and autonomy
The price of Kindle Oasis includes a sleeve, having three options to choose a design, color and different textures: burgundy, black and walnut. What’s my favorite? Undoubtedly, the walnut color.The three alternatives made with high quality leather, which could not be less taking account of the economic value of the whole: not only says Amazon, I have seen first hand.
The cover is easily attached to the product through a system of 12 imams , forming a solid set: the accessory is also extracted effortlessly, although magnets are strong enough to ensure good bond with the Kindle.
Battery life ? The case has its own which, added to the ereader, achieved an operating time of up to eight weeks: at the rate of half an hour daily reading and ten intensity level of screen brightness. It will be a guideline value, as there will be users to read up to two hours a day and therefore, energy consumption will for two or three weeks.
The ideal is to have the case at hand and use it when we get on the Kindle everywhere. And it ‘snot so much the fact of having more autonomy to read on a single charge, but knowing that the device will be well protected and can be stored safely in a backpack, purse or anywhere else.
Software and operation – Amazon kindle oasis
In the initial screen you will find several hits, including leading us to our personal library with books and already purchased “premiered”. Of course, every time you finish reading the last page that we were will be memorized. Amazon has also included a space with recommended books, to give us clues next title to read.
With the operating system of this Kindle we can also create a list of books to read , lest we forget those titles that once caught our attention but, being already one half, yet we do not intend to buy .
With this device you can access the online store Amazon via Wi-Fi, or even via the mobile network if we have the 3G version : remember that the 3G version provides free Internet access from anywhere, so that you can buy the book anywhere in the country, whether or not points free Wi-Fi access.
Capacity memory device? 4GB local storage space without cost addition available with the cloud service from Amazon. More than enough for anyone. What digital book formats are supported? Kindle ( AZW3 ), Kindle (AZW), TXT, PDF, MOBI unprotected, PRC natively, HTML , DOC, DOCX , JPEG , GIF, PNG, and BMP through conversion. But at no time mention it is made to epub, which is the format that I normally use .
When you open a book, there are a number of adjustments that can be made to adapt the visual space and the text to the preferences of each. At the end of the day , not all somo same or have the same visual acuity:
- Choice of text size , which may be very necessary if you have nearsightedness, farsightedness, or just seems more comfortable having a large print.
- There will be up to seven fonts to choose from, although I would stay with the default one.
- Adjusting the spacing may also contribute to comfort while reading.
- They may reduce or extend the lateral margins, although I think preferable to fill as much space on the screen.
Do you want to locate something concrete in the pages of a book? There is more to launch the search option. And if it is night, or read in a place with poor lighting, you also have the option to play with the intensity of brightness of the screen of your Kindle Oasis. What will be the most appropriate intensity? I like to give a point of light, enough to be comfortable reading the text. Amazon kindle oasis
In short, what conclusions can be drawn after having tested this product? Not a reader e – books suitable for all budgets, but rather for those with some purchasing power or is indisputable, to treat yourself if you are an avid reader. Amazon kindle oasis
