The new color variant of Amazon’s top e-reader starts shipping on March 22, 2018. The price is the same as the regular version: $249.99.
Finally, an e-reader gets the look of top-shelf tablets.
Five months after the launch, the 2nd-generation Kindle Oasis gets the new color variant – and you are going to love it!
A few minutes ago, Amazon has announced on Twitter the introduction of Kindle Oasis in Champagne Gold. Until now, the e-reader was available in one color: Graphite.
What about the price? Usually, all color variants cost the same. This time it looks like it’s different. The price displayed for the Champagne Gold version is $30 higher than Graphite. It’s $279.99 versus $249.99.
Calm down, you won’t pay extra money for the color. The reason for the higher price is that the more expensive 32 GB storage option is recommended by Amazon. However, when you add the Kindle to cart, you will have a chance to customize your purchase. And you will be able to choose the cheaper 8 GB variant, as well.
You can already pre-order Kindle Oasis in a new color, but you’ll need to wait for the shipping until March 22, 2018.
If you decide to buy the e-reader now, you can get Kindle Unlimited for a reduced price. The Kindle Unlimited subscription purchased together with the Kindle (actually, every Kindle model comes with that offer) costs $9.99 for first three months.
Kindle Oasis 2 is Amazon’s most advanced e-reader. It is waterproof and meets IPX8 rating. You can put it two meters under water and keep it for up to one hour without causing any damage.
The device is also the first Kindle with the 7-inch display. The resolution it offers is 1680 × 1264 px. Most importantly, the 2nd-generation Kindle Oasis can play audiobooks, as it has built-in Audible support.

A Woman of No Importance:
The Untold Story of the American Spy Who Helped Win World War II
by Sonia Purnell
France was falling. Burned-out cars, once strapped high with treasured possessions, were nosed crazily into ditches. Their beloved cargoes of dolls, clocks, and mirrors lay smashed around them and along mile upon mile of unfriendly road. Their owners, young and old, sprawled across the hot dust, were groaning or already silent. Yet the hordes just kept streaming past them, a never-ending line of hunger and exhaustion too fearful to stop for days on end.
Ten million women, children, and old men were on the move, all fleeing Hitler’s tanks pouring across the border from the east and the north. Entire cities had uprooted themselves in a futile bid to escape the Nazi blitzkrieg that threatened to engulf them. The fevered talk was of German soldiers stripped to the waist in jubilation at the ease of their conquest. The air was thick with smoke and the stench of the dead. The babies had no milk, and the aged fell where they stood. The horses drawing overladen old farm carts sagged and snarled in their sweat-drenched agony. The French heat wave of May 1940 was witness to this, the largest refugee exodus of all time.
Day after day a solitary moving vehicle weaved its way through the crowd with a striking young woman at the wheel. Private Virginia Hall often ran low on fuel and medicines but still pressed on in her French army ambulance toward the advancing enemy. She persevered even when the German Stukas came screaming down to drop 110-pound bombs onto the convoys all around her, torching the cars and cratering the roads. Even when fighter planes swept over the treetops to machine-gun the ditches where women and children were trying to take cover from the carnage. Even though French soldiers were deserting their units, abandoning their weapons, and running away, some in their tanks. Even when her left hip was shot with pain from continually pressing down on the clutch with her prosthetic foot.
