Amazon’s New Kindle Oasis Breaks Kindle Design Tradition

Is eReader still a thing? Of course, it is, or else Amazon won’t be pushing yet another new eReader like the Amazon Kindle Oasis, right? So, here it is the Kindle Oasis, a rather eccentric looking eReader from the online retail giant. So what’s new? First off, it has an unconventional off-center display and a profile that measures just 3.4mm for almost 2/3 of the device and a tapered bump that is 8.5mm at its thickest portion. Amazon said this bump will promote ease of grip, which kind of makes sense since a too thick profile is not exactly grippy, in a manner of speaking.

Barnes & Noble Nook GlowLight

Barnes & Noble’s last eReader, the Nook Simple Touch with GlowLight is quite a mouthful as far as eReader names are concerned. however, with the latest iteration, Barnes & Nobles has decided to drop ‘Simple Touch’ and simply refer it to as Nook GlowLight, which goes on sale today for just $119 a pop. with the new Nook, the firm also decides to part with black hue and go with “warm-white” color that is said to “accentuate the display’s ultra-sharp, crisp text” so that you can focus more on reading and not on bezel, which by the way, is still pretty huge. speaking of which, you are probably not going to take fancy if you are a bezel person. in addition to an ergonomic form, it has a soft-touch finish for comfort holding and a new silicone trim around the device for extra protection in the event of an unfortunate tumble.
