Five months after the launch, Amazon presents a second color option for Kindle Oasis: golden champagne. The e-reader still has a dark gray border on the front, meant to make the text jump, but the back of the device is covered with a pale golden aluminum.
Apart from that, it's the same as the standard Kindle Oasis: water resistant, with a 7-inch screen and 300 ppi. The only difference is that Amazon will not offer it with 8 GB of storage or with a cellular connection, like the original Oasis. If you want the golden model, you have to get 32GB, just Wi-Fi. It will be available for $ 280 with ads and $ 300 without.
Although Amazon fire tablets have been offered in various colors, this is the first time that an electronic Kindle reader is offered in anything other than black or white (or whatever you want to call gray aluminum in the Oasis). original). The golden color could help Amazon to better position the Oasis as its premium model and give customers another reason to pay for it, since that is the case, most of its features can be found on the $ 120 Kindle Paperwhite for less than the half the price.
