I've been eyeing the Kindle Oasis for awhile. When they announced the latest version last year I was skeptical because of the size increase. Another factor was the terrible reviews on the official Amazon cases for the device. If you're going to pay so much for an e-reader, you should probably get a case. At least if you have a toddler in the house.

Anyway, I finally broke down and bought one. It arrived today and it's awesome. I love my older paperwhite and this IS an improvement over that. I can read the text a little better over my paperwhite, and the nicest is the inverted text for reading at night. And, honestly, I like the physical buttons.

I wasn't a huge fan of the lopsided design, but it's grown on me. It's also as tall as my paperwhite but the screen is larger.

The nice thing is that my old paperwhite can be reused as a display, not unlike the Kindle Weather Display I made a few years back. I love epaper as a display - I consider it much less intrusive than LCD, so the chance to use epaper for anything is always a bonus.
