With firmware 5.9.0.5.1 you still have Amazon Ember and Amazon Ember Bold.

I see no options for this in the menu. But you can revert backward and forward as it is also possible on the first Oasis.

You can totally ignore the buttons, if you want, without accidentally pressing them. In my opinion they don't interfere while swiping or tapping.

Hey Barty,

I doublechecked, but sadly there's no option for inversion in this fw version.

It looks like the firmware shipped with the new Oasis predates the latest firmware for other models, which makes sense given the time required to manufacture the devices. There is supposed to be an other-the-air update available at release. Perhaps they haven't released that because they didn't expect customers to have the device until next week.

Did they specifically say "on release day"? ISTR it being a little vaguer than that.

From the press release:

Quote:
Audible will be available on the all-new Kindle Oasis via a free over-the-air update when the device ships—and it will be available via a free over-the-air update to Kindle (Gen 8) and the first Kindle Oasis in the coming months. If you’re new to Audible, sign up for a free trial and get two free audiobooks.

If you look at the device page on Amazon, though, in the blue box describing Audible support it says "Available via a free over-the-air update.", which seems a lot vaguer to me. Oh well, I'm sure it'll appear in the not too distant future.

Have you checked it in a dark room? Because with pw and voyage even if you turn off front light completely there is still glimmer light that can be seen in darkness.
I asking that because it is very important to me to turn off light completely. I can still cancel my order if there is no possibility to do that.

If you can only see it in total darkness, what's the problem? You can't read in total darkness without a light.
