Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:

“I’ve been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It’s a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog.”

  1. I prefer The Verge

    Nate, your LA Times and The Guardian links are for the first Oasis. It does not appear like those two have posted a review yet.

  2. The HuffPost review is for the 2016 version.

  3. Tom’s Guide has by far the best review. It provided depth, detail, tests and conclusions free of bias. Only problem with it is that they made it sound like Oasis improved the auto-brightness in this model, when it introduced it. Maybe they meant the auto-brightness is better than it was on the Voyage, but they said older Oasis model instead.

    It is a shame that this new Kindle model didn’t come with usb-c, the new standard.

  4. The CNN review is the worst. They spend almost the entire (short) review complaining that you can’t read underwater with the Oasis, because weird things happen. Then they not in an update that the Oasis is not designed to be used underwater.
