There’s nothing better than having the hottest new piece of technology in your hand. I mean, who doesn’t love being on the cutting edge, provided that edge isn’t sharp enough to cut you? Companies are all trying to be lighter, thinner, larger, brighter, and with more battery life, and it looks like Amazon is taking this plan to heart with their newly-announced Kindle Oasis. Granted, they haven’t released it yet, but the design specs have already been leaked. Here’s what the leaked Kindle Oasis looks like.
The thing I like most about the Kindle Oasis is just how small it is. It’s the lightest Kindle offering by far, 27 percent lighter than the Kindle Voyage and 36 percent lighter than the Kindle Paperwhite. It’s so small and light it can be held with only one hand, which would make reading in bed a whole lot easier for back sleepers. There’s an accelerometer in that determines if the book is being held in the left or right hand, and to make sure it’s oriented appropriately.
That bump you see above? That’s where your hand grip is supposed to be. That just might be easier to use than an actual paperback book, even if it doesn’t have the promised solar power case yet. However, the current case does support a second external battery, which should help keep things juiced up while on the go.
