E-readers have been huge for a while now, and with good reason. After all, what’s not to love about a device that can pack a library into something the size of a tablet, right? If you are a book lover E-reader technology may very well change your life, but the question then becomes which one to get.
There are certainly lots of options out there, which is why today we are going to help you with your decision by highlighting some of the features of the Kindle Oasis. Read on for a comprehensive review of the Kindle Oasis E-reader!
First, What Exactly is an E-reader?
Good question. An E-reader is a smart device designed around books. Most of them are the size of typical tablets and are able to hold hundreds, if not thousands of your favorite texts. You will also be able to listen to audiobooks, read magazines, newspapers, or even comics.
It’s a great way to save space and bring every bit of reading material that you could ever want with you on the go.
Let’s now take an in-depth look at the Kindle Oasis E-reader by observing some of its best features.
- Access: While this device is loaded with techy features that make it easy to use, my feelings are that its very best attribute lies in the access it gives you to various texts. First, this device gives you access to thousands of classic titles in the public domain for free. We’re talking about books by some of the greatest writers of all time: Charles Dickens, Dante, Mark Twain, Voltaire.
Not only that but with the subscription service “Kindle Unlimited”, you can enjoy as many books as you want all for a reasonable monthly rate. To put the cherry on top, you will also be able to choose from thousands of magazines, audiobooks, comic books, and newspapers. The result is truly unlimited access to any text you could want to read.
- Memory: The Kindle Oasis’ gigabytes work hard. On the 4GB model alone you will be able to store thousands of titles all in the sleek compact device. You’ve got to love the ability to store an entire library in a device that fits in the palm of your hand.
- Options: There are also endless options available to ensure that you have a personalized reading experience. The tablet will give the ability to do everything from adjusting your screen brightness to allowing you to look up words and background information as you read. The Oasis even tracks your reading speed and provides you with estimates as to how long it will take for you to finish the book.
- Lend Your Books: One of the great things about physical copies of books is that you can easily share them with your friends and family. The same is now true of your Kindle Ebooks. With this device, you will be able to share your favorite titles with friends and family for up to two weeks.
- Long Battery Life: A single charge of this device will allow you to actively use it for up to fifteen hours so that you will never have to worry about your battery dying in the middle of your book.
- Compact: The Oasis is not only extremely thin, but it is also about as long as a pencil making it one of the most compact readers of its kind. This device is both extremely powerful and extremely portable.
- For the Kids: This device also strives to foster a love of reading in children by providing unlimited access to hundreds of children’s titles (for a small monthly fee) as well as providing a reward system that celebrates when your kids hit certain reading milestones. If you want to make a book lover out of your child, this device will be a great way to do it.
How it Stacks Up
This certainly is not the first E-reader, or even the first Kindle. But while there is no doubt that there are some similar devices that have come before the Oasis, it certainly does represent a new age of technology.
The Kindle Voyage, for example, shares many features with the Oasis. How this latest model excels, however, is in improving upon those features. Naturally, this new model is gong to cost a little bit more money but for your money, you are getting a device with more memory, a design that is completely optimized to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand, and a battery that is designed to last an entire month.
While all Kindles are going to work great, and share many features in common if you want the very best in E-reader technology you be best off investing in the Oasis.
