Amazon introduces...

...the Kindle Oasis.

From the product description:

The buttons are good.  Having both buttons and touchscreen available for page-turning makes everyone happy.  The charging cover is a nice addition, I guess, but sort of "meh" in my opinion.

But are these new bells and whistles worth the price?

Three hundred bucks for a dedicated e-reader?  :o  That's just crazy talk.

Look, Amazon.  I love you guys.  I really do.  You're my favorite corporation on this entire planet.  But very few people are going to fork out that kind of money for that kind of product.  If it was a full-feature tablet--in other words, an iPad competitor--then yeah, the price ain't so bad.  But it's just an e-reader.

A three hundred dollar e-reader.

I'll stick with my first-gen Kindle Fire.
