KIN­DLE

Herald Sun - Switched On - - GADGETS & GAMES -

This e-book reader looks a bit like a pocket square. The top Kin­dle is 20 per cent lighter than any model be­fore it at 131g, and is so small it can ride around in a bag un­no­ticed. De­spite its size, it fea­tures a 6inch, 300 pixel-per-inch touch­screen and two phys­i­cal but­tons for turn­ing pages. Its un­usual de­sign in­cludes a hump on its back for a com­fort­able hold, though read­ers should use its in­cluded leather cover equipped with ex­tra bat­tery. It doesn’t fea­ture an adap­tive light sen­sor nor wa­ter re­sis­tance, but the Oa­sis is a com­fort­able way to read an en­tire li­brary.
