Kindle Watch! -- New Oasis
« on: October 21, 2017, 09:58:37 AM »
We're 10 days from release day, so I figured it was about time to start this thread. ;D

If you wish, let everyone know if you ordered one (when), which you ordered, and when you expect it to be delivered. You may also share whether or not you're a Prime customer or if you paid for quicker shipping. I'll start.

Ordered on the day it was announced, October 11
8GB, WiFi only, Special offers
No cover ordered
Delivery expected on release day, October 31
I am a Prime customer, used 'standard' 2 day shipping -- didn't pay for faster.

I ordered a day after the announcement, so on the 12th October.

8GB, wifi, with special offers, no cover.
Delivery with prime 2 day was November 6th, so I paid for 1 day to get it on the 3rd.
Otherwise I would have to wait all weekend as the 6th is a Monday and the 3rd a Friday.

Clever!

I actually never even thought about paying for extra, which is fine since I'm getting it on the 31st anyway. But now I'm wondering: if I did pay extra, would I get it sooner? That actually happened to me with the k3/keyboard: I paid for 1 day shipping and got it a day BEFORE the day it was officially released. But, I couldn't be sure that would happen again, and I also recall people paying for faster shipping and getting it the same day as the people who didn't pay for faster. (If requested, Amazon did refund those extra shipping charges). Anyway, release day is good for me -- I'm not going to change it at this point. ;)

It being on a weekend is the only reason I paid for the 1 day. Otherwise it would just be one day difference at most. But that weekend would feel really long. I've been there before.  8)

Ordered Oct 13 (not sure how I missed the announcement, but I did!)
Wi-fi only, special offers, 8 GB
No cover (not sure how I'm going to live without my Oberon sleeves I've used for all my other Kindles)
Delivery date Nov 6th, which works for me....I'll be on vacation on release day anyway.  I'm Prime, but didn't pay for early shipment.

I can't wait to hear the reports of those that get theirs on the 31st. Mostly I need to know about the cover, so I know which one to get. I need to know first if the leather covers are smooth like the current Oasis merlot, or soft suede or fuzzy like the walnut. The photos look much more like some fuzzy leather and I don't want that anymore. But I am not really hip on the colors of the fabric one. Don't like either of those. So I need the feedback. Which is handy since I then have a couple of days to decide and order the cover, before my Oasis gets here.  ;D

Welcome to Kboards, Pugs . . . . and welcome to Kindle Watch. ;)

I can't wait to hear the reports of those that get theirs on the 31st. Mostly I need to know about the cover, so I know which one to get. I need to know first if the leather covers are smooth like the current Oasis merlot, or soft suede or fuzzy like the walnut. The photos look much more like some fuzzy leather and I don't want that anymore. But I am not really hip on the colors of the fabric one. Don't like either of those. So I need the feedback. Which is handy since I then have a couple of days to decide and order the cover, before my Oasis gets here.  ;D

I wasn't keen on the colors of either fabric or leather . . . . and am still hoping, as they no longer actually have batteries, that third parties will make something. Probably won't see anything until after the end of the month, though, because those vendors have to get their hands on one as well!

I traded in my Oasis and got back $120 so I ordered yesterday 10/20.
32GB 3G no special offers
Expected date 11/15
I think I'm going to order the merlot cover. I was going to hold off for a cheaper cover but I looked at what was available for the small Oasis and none of them showed the backing of the device. I plan on skinning her and want to be able to see the design on the back as well.

Have not ordered yet but very likely will in November when i have the funds unless there are a lot of bad reviews. The new oasis is perfect for me and what i want from a ereader.

I ordered on October 14th from Amazon.com.mx. I had only two options for shipping: free shipping and standard shipping. I'm getting standard shipping for about six dollars. I also ordered the blue cloth cover and it's coming with the Oasis.

Obviously, since I'm in Mexico, I'm not a Prime Member.

I skipped the original Oasis. I didn't like the idea of the battery pack in the case. I loathed the cutesy Origami case on the Voyage.

I ordered a few hours after the announcement, 32gb WiFi/3g, Merlot cover. Delivery date 31 October. I'm in the UK so special offers not a factor. I always go for the optimum model of any Kindle, for peace of mind and because it and reading play such a key role in my life, I prioritise spending on the highest specced version, so I'll never need to worry about space filling up or being able to download wherever there is any kind of Internet access. Looking forward to it hugely. I wasn't a great fan of the original Oasis and sold mine after about a year. I currently use two Voyages. The new Oasis definitely feels like a step up, the larger size and storage are the big draws for me. The faster processor should reap dividends too. I don't really do audiobooks and I'm not too bothered about the waterproofing.
