Review: Kindle Oasis, the joys of a good ebook

With a larger screen and waterproof design, Amazon's new Kindle Oasis is for well-heeled readers who struggle to put down a good book. Starting at NZ$400, the Oasis has dropped in price but is still the most expensive Kindle by far. In return it steps up to a 7-inch screen, with the extra space letting you see more text, or else bump up the font size. Despite this, it's barely larger or heavier than the others in the stable. It's beautifully balanced and comfortable to hold for hours, while the screen looks fantastic and is easy on the eyes. Onboard storage is also bumped up to 8GB or 32GB, although you'd only need the latter if you're a fan of Audible audio books, which take up about 150MB each. Continue reading at 'Stuff'
