I'm wondering if that seemingly disembodied hand isn't Thing, from 'The Addams Family'.

It seems to be very close to the end of the tub.

I was surprised they used a man's hand in a bath, especially a bubble bath with a flower alongside luxurious bath accoutrements, instead of a woman's. It was a pleasant surprise, since I'm male and like hot bath soaks from time to time. I don't read in the bath though, but sometimes I will listen to an audiobook.

Except that the Oasis is an inch smaller than the premium Kobo and Nook devices. I wouldn't want to give up that inch (or in my case, that 0.8") myself.

Right, but at least at the time I took that massive screenshot, it was impossible to actually order that model from that page.
Anyway, moot point as people have found the LTE version.

It would be perfectly fine if it was a man's hand, but that looks like a woman's hand to me.

That would make more sense, but it still looks like a man’s hand to me. Maybe they were going for ambiguity?

This ticks me off. I bought an Oasis at the start of May. Too late now to return it and they only want to give me $75 as an upgrade.

Yeah, I really don't see any other than economic reasons (no redesign needed) to stick to this material for the body. Very disappointing in my opinion...

Hm, I would guess woman's hand too but it's possible it could be a man's.

I would love a new, fancy upgraded Kindle but to me this isn't a reason to upgrade for the price. I never liked the design of the Oasis so I stayed away from it. There weren't redesigns or improvements other than the light. I'm curious if I'll light the warm light, but have no idea if I will or not since I've never tried.

I grabbed one of the Woot Voyages a few months back and prefer it to either version of the Oasis that I have, so I guess I'll skip this one.

While I plan to trade in my PW4 and Oasis 2017 to upgrade to this new Oasis, the Voyage still remains my all-time favorite Kindle, and i continue to use mine on a daily basis.
