Dave Limp, Senior Vice President, Amazon Devices and Services, says in the announcement, "Ten years ago, we introduced our first Kindle with the mission of delivering any book ever written in 60 seconds or less. With a larger 7-inch, 300 ppi display, waterproof design, and Audible built right in, the all-new Kindle Oasis is our most advanced Kindle ever.
