The 7" Oasis

Kindle Oasis 7

Overview

Kindle Oasis tapers to an ultrathin 3.4mm display featuring our strongest cover glass and a sleek, anodized aluminum back. The big change this time is the larger 7-inch screen, which can hold 30 percent more text than before. It still packs in a sharp 300ppi resolution, and includes 12 LEDs frontlight for uniform lighting with adaptive light sensor. It is also waterproof and has a longer battery life of 6 weeks. It has a touchscreen plus page turn buttons and a reversible white on black screen setting.

It’s now easy to export notes and highlights from a book to your e-mail, so you can always have them on-hand for reference. Receive your notes both as an easily printable PDF, and as a simple file you can open in your favorite spreadsheet app.

Two standing cases are available accessories and a charger.
