Leaked! New Kindle Oasis has a 7″ Screen, is Waterproof
Apple may have trouble getting their suppliers to keep their trap shut, but Amazon has trouble keeping their own apps from leaking important info.
Members of KBoards and MobileRead have noticed that theA mazon app for Android has been showing a new banner advert for an "all-knew Kindle Oasis". According to one report, the new device is waterproof. It also reportedly supports Audible audiobooks, and has a 7″ screen.
It looks like Amazon has launched their competitor to the Aura H2O.
It’s a pity that it’s not using the same screen size as the Aura One, but it’s probably for the best. Adding buttons and a grip to one side of an 8″ screen results in a rather large device.
I had one – the Pocketbook Inkpad – and as much as I loved it (before the software stopped working), it was a big ereader.
Amazon probably won’t be launching the new Oasis until September.

If it has a different screen size, it may be plastic based

"Amazon probably won’t be launching the new Oasis until September."
So we have to wait 11 months?

Why the Oasis? If it was a 7 inch Voyage or Paperwhite more people would probably be interested but why take the most expensive device to tweak and put it completely out of the financial reach of most people. The Oasis is not one of their top selling devices so it doesn’t make sense to pick that one to improve over the Paperwhite.

the new Oasis is cheaper and clearly the best kindle model
that’s why not the Paperwhite.
