We loved the Amazon Kindle Oasis 2017 model thanks to its pioneering features such as waterproofing, audiobook support and storage up to 32GB. The catch was that it cost at least £230 to buy Amazon’s top-end eReader. Thankfully, a lot of the best features of the Oasis are making their way to the much more popular Kindle Paperwhite, which will be £10 more than the previous Paperwhite at £119. The headline improvements include double the storage space at 8GB, a new flush screen, waterproofing and Audible integration, meaning you can move between the written and audio books if you have Bluetooth headphones or speakers. It goes on pre-order today, with the 8GB model costing £120, the 32GB model £150, and the 32GB model with free cellular coming in at £220. The 8 GB model will then start landing on doormats come 7th November, with the 32 GB model in “coming months” according to a very vague-sounding Amazon. Oh, and it will also come with an updated home screen that allows for more personalisation options, an update that will also be coming to previous-gen Kindle Paperwhites from tomorrow. There will also be three new covers for the Kindle Paperwhite 2018: premium leather is £50, leather is £35 and fabric is £25.
