Looks Like the Kindle Voyage Has Reached the End of Its Journey

For a few years, the Voyage was Amazon’s flagship e-reader. While it was never cheap, its 300 PPI resolution and fantastic design often made it a better buy even after Amazon released the first Kindle Oasis in 2016. However, it seems time and the emergence of the second-generation Kindle Oasis have put an end to the Kindle Voyage’s run, because after supplies of Kindle Voyages dried up in the US, UK, and other major Amazon portals, it seems like the Voyage is being discontinued.

The New Kindle Oasis is the Best Ereader of All Time, But Is It Worth It?

I’m not terribly fussy about how I read. I used an old Kindle Keyboard until a stray pen in my backpack broke its display, and I’ve long happily used a Paperwhite without so much as considering the fancier Kindles Amazon has released since I got it back in 2013. Hell, half the time I’m just reading on the Kindle smartphone app for a few minutes here and there between glances at my email. So the new Kindle Oasis, the company’s most advanced reading gadget yet, is not designed for me. But goddamn, it’s great. Read More >>

Amazon Just Added a Really Handy New Feature to Kindles and Apps

Amazon Kindle Oasis Hands-On: The Thinnest, Lightest, Weirdest Kindle Yet

The Amazon Kindle Oasis is unlike any eReader I’ve seen before. The new top-of-the-line premium reading gadget from Amazon (with a price tag to match) eschews the regular slate-like format for a super-slim asymmetrical design that’s so light it feels like you’re barely holding anything at all. Going up for pre-order today (ahead of a late April release) bundled with a unique charging case for a wallet-whipping £269.99, I had a brief fumble with the Oasis, and it’s left me truly intrigued.
