Surprise! Amazon just announced a brand new version of its popular Kindle Oasis eBook Reader, and it could very well be the best eReader Amazon has ever created. It sports a new upgraded Paperwhite display with a class-leading pixel density of 300 ppi, and it’s also IPX8 rated so it’s fully waterproof and you can read in the pool or bath. But the coolest new feature has to be the special warm backlight that shifts from white to amber in the dark so it doesn’t strain your eyes! It’s awesome, and it’s available right now for preorder ahead of its release on July 24.
Here’s what you need to know from the product page:
- Our best 7″, 300ppi flush-front Paperwhite display.
