i never saw the Oasis 1 on display, maybe because the device was removable from the cover, they couldn't secure them properly. I was glad that they did have the Oasis 2 on display at Best Buy, but so far not a gold one. I'm sure at some point they will.
They do have the grey one on display at my store

I like it ! Not a hint of pumpkin either ! I think the green cover goes well with the gold too.

I’m still trying to justify buying it and failing. Even without the sales tax!

Lol ! You have amazing will power ! I'm keeping mine too, it works well. I think the battery will have the same life span in gold, unfortunately. Now if they add a larger battery in the next revision, then it would be worth it's weight in gold

Really? That better be a solid gold case with gem stone inserts as buttons to justify a close to USD 7800 Oasis.

Lol ! Well of course, the Champagne Gold & Gems Oasis with larger battery.
(Heirloom Edition ) They could be handed down for generations.

We were just kidding. There will never be a solid gold & gems Oasis. No matter how much someone would want one. Besides it's out of my price range.

Are you thinking of returning it ? Or going to wait and see how it does before the return window closes ?

I love my Oasis 7" (graphite).

The review in the original post is obnoxious IMO... why do they always have to question anyone buying anything but the absolute cheapest eInk reader but it's totally normal and cool to spend $1000 on a new phone and get a new one every year or even faster?

I regret the money I spent on my iPad way way more than the money I spent on the Oasis, and the iPad was at least 2X as expensive. The Oasis gets used every day, the iPad sometimes goes > 7 days without getting touched.

The only thing is I wish amazon would push a software update that kept it from turning a page when you close the cover before it goes to sleep.

I do not have that issue. Your cover may not have enough cutout to avoid accidentally pushing a button before the magnet activates sleep. I am using the discontinued original Amazon cover in charcoal fabric.

I do not have that problem either with the original Amazon leather cover and a third-party one. Sounds like your cover is the problem.
