When Amazon launched the Kindle Oasis last year, it was already one of the expensive eBook readers out there. And now, it has unveiled a new color variant for the device in the United States which makes it even more expensive but a little more premium-looking too. We are talking about the all-new Kindle Oasis Champagne Gold edition which is currently up for preorders.
It looks exactly the same as the standard edition from the front but features the Gold back panel which makes all the difference, at least from Amazon's point of view. It is basically for those who have the extra money to spend and want to stand out in the crowd of other eBook reader users. It has been released only in 32GB WiFi model which means you cannot get it in 8GB option or with cellular connectivity. It has been priced at $280 with ads and $300 without any ads.
Apart from the difference in color, this new edition comes with the same set of specifications as the normal Kindle Oasis. It means you will get the same 7-inch display with 300ppi. It will feature native support for Audible, a service that lets you listen to audiobooks on the go. It also happens to be water-resistant so that you can use it next to a swimming pool without worrying much.
If interested, the Kindle Oasis Champagne Gold is currently up for preorders in the United States. The pricing will depend on whether you want it with ads or without ads. Either way, it will start shipping March 22nd which is from next week which will make the US only the second market after China to officially have the device.
