The all-new Kindle Oasis might just be the perfect travel companion

Read 'em and weep

The summer holidays are almost upon us, which for most folks means a chance to jet off somewhere scorching hot, lounge by a crystal blue pool, and tuck into a good book (or ten). With that rather tantalising proposition in mind, Amazon has unveiled a brand new Kindle with a display that’ll blow your socks off. The Kindle Oasis (£229) sports a reworked 7in Paperwhite screen that combines the latest e-ink technology with an adjustable warm light that lets users easily transition from daytime to nighttime reading. It’s also built to withstand accidental drops and is IPX8 rated to protect against immersion in fresh water for up to 60 minutes, making it the perfect poolside companion during those well-earned summer sojourns.

I’m a freelance games and technology journalist currently mashing my keyboard in the name of fine institutions like Stuff, where you'll usually find me waxing lyrical about the latest mobile morsels. I've also been known to cook up some decidedly delicious reviews from time to time, and was once dubbed 'the games industry's answer to Nigella Lawson' by someone probably somewhere.
