...and that explains the brief sale price of the 'all-older Oasis'.

I'm glad I waited.

It does explain the recent sale on the Oasis.

Congratulations on your awesome recovery Dr. Drib !

Eh... not really interested. In all the other aspects it's the same as the previous model. I'm not going to cough up 250 bucks only for a fancy frontlight.

If they would improve the battery life, I'd be interested. I love my 2017 Oasis, but the battery life leaves a lot to be desired.

The "warm" light isn't important to me, certainly not enough to inspire me to open my wallet again at that price.

If my Oasis 2 didn't have the ability to invert black and white, I would probably trade it in for the new one in order to read comfortably at night. As it is, I find the white on black display perfect for reading in a dark room. Nor does it seem to affect my sleep, unlike my phone and tablet before I started using a blue light filter. Still, I'm glad Amazon is finally offering a warm light for those who've been looking for it.

Likewise. Good to have it as an option for those who prefer “warm” lighting, but it’s not something I have a need for myself.

interestingly no model with cellular networking, although the chart they have comparing kindle models says one exists.

So one's probably coming

When I looked at the chart on Amazon.ca, it shows a 32GB model at $430 with WiFi and Cellular, a 32GB model at $360 with WiFi and an 8GB model with WiFi for $330 (all dollar amounts in Cdn dollars). The older version and the current Paperwhite also do not have a "free cellular for a few dollars more" 8GB model.

Goodbye Kobo Forma and Aura ONE. Now I have to sell the "old" Oasis before the prices completely tank.

Interesting. The wifi only models are the same price as the old ones, but the cellular is $20 more now. Not enough reason to upgrade (for me) as I am perfectly happy without warm light. It is however nice to see that choice of features no longer dictates ecosystem as they all (Kobo, Nook, Kindle) are basically feature identical.

My original Oasis is still going strong and I like it. Lightweight, battery lasts me a week (I know, not like the 3-4 of older models), has page turn buttons and I like the lighting scheme. I'll probably use it til it's dead (like my old Sony 505). So all that to say I won't be getting this

Looking at the Oasis column, near the bottom of the compare editions, it says WiFi or WiFi and Free Cellular the same as the Paperwhite.

OTOH, even if I select the WiFi and Free Cellular version for the Oasis or the WAN version for the Paperwhite, the tech specs does not mention cellular connectivity for either the Oasis or the Paperwhite.

On yet another hand, at least I don't get to see a Special offers variant on Amazon.ca.
