Oasis question

Is the rotation able to be locked? I do a lot of reading lying down and tilt my reader up so that an auto-rotate would put it in landscape mode but I want it to remain in portrait.

Even better if I could lock to portrait mode but still allow "flipping" from right hand to left with 180 degree rotation (but not 90 degree).

Also, with the NEW Oasis (warm color enabled)...is it still micro USB A? Or have they finally gone to USB C?

I have a 1st gen Voyage right now. It works fine but I've been hankering for warm light. Also the "smile" fell out of the back of my Voyage which irritates me. It leaves a deep indent there which I can't help but run my fingers over as I read. It's distracting.

It can't be locked, but the device has to be physically rotated well over 90 degrees before the screen rotates. Also, if the device is in portrait mode, it will only rotate 180 to the other portrait orientation.

You have to manually change to landscape for it to rotate to that orientation. Once in landscape, it will auto-rotate to the other landscape side.
