I noticed lately their article titles are misleading and false. Annoys the crap out of me. Like the one that suggests they know how well the note taking on the scribe is yet never touched an actual model.

There is NOTHING on the internet or amazon.com to suggest a new Oasis. I hope for one. I hope for 64GB
64GB is way too much storage for a Kindle. Given how easy it is for an eBook to get stuck indexing and the very poor eBook management, less storage is better. And any new Kindle will not be able to be jailbroken so forget running KOReader.

Sign up for Tor's free eBooks. Tor does gie away some good ones. Granted, they are mostly the first book in a series.
Not available in my country. I looked it up when they started to give away free books. I'm not going to bother with VPN and such for one free book per month.

kwmobile makes good cases that do last. My kwmobile case is still going strong after about 5 years of heavy use.
My Fintie case is 3 years and 2 weeks old today. Daily use and in 93-95% condition. I've used this same Fintie model case on each Kindle for going on a decade. I guess that's 3 different ones. Never had a problem with any. Much better than the book style side opening origami case for my Kobo. That won't sit level no matter what you do. Always sits crooked. Hate book style side opening cases.

That would not be specific to the Oasis and is not the biggest problem with the Oasis or any other kindle.

I have KWMobile cases for all my kobos and Fintie cases for my kindles. Both makes are very good.

Me too after seeing your comments about it few months ago. They are comfortable and resilient

Counterpoint: I got a KWMobile origami case for the Kindle recently and while it looked nicer than any other Kindle origami case (which is not saying much), it had no magnets in it, so it wouldn’t actually work. I was floored by how idiotic the designer was. Junk

Was it advertised as having magnets? If so, you ought to return it, as it's clearly faulty.

No, not yet. I highly doubt we will get something this year.

One friend of mine purchased a KWMobile origami case which was advertised as a sleepcover which would suggest it has a magnet to trigger the Hall effect switch. Sadly, it didn't work and we could locate no magnets in the sleep sensor area though the magnets for the cover were present. They requested a return and replacement and the new cover had a magnet for the sleep sensor. This was a cover for a Kobo Libra 2 but I'd assume the same manufacturing glitches could occur in any model.

From what I've heard, the Kindle Oasis 3 apparently changed something about the magnets that made many old 3rd party cases stop working or stop working correctly.
