Kindle Oasis: US$289. Ha! Ha! Ha! NO.

New – Kindle Oasis with Leather Charging Cover – Black, 6″ High-Resolution Display (300 ppi), Wi-Fi – Includes Special Offers

Tell them you want no ads and the price goes up US$20. Want an AC adapter? Another US$20. It looks like this then:



Even worse: Amazon is keeping the non-backlit Kindle Touch for US$79.99. And the Kindle Paperwhite for $119.99.

They should have dropped the Touch and made the Paperwhite the entry-level model for US$89.99.

Barnes & Noble is breaking out the champagne at Nook HQ. The Nook can still sell for US$129.99. For now.

  1. I was waiting for you to respond on this thing. You didn’t disappoint.

    I just bought a Paperwhite because I wasn’t expecting to see a big leap, and this one isn’t. The page-turning buttons are nice as long as they’re noiseless, but the PW is great, the leather cover is a fucking luxury, and I managed to jailbreak it so that I could install KOReader in it and read every other format that isn’t AZW or MOBI.
