On the Kindle Oasis: "I remember the first eBook readers that were available in Poland cost about that much as well, seven to eight years ago. It’s quite a steep price, and I’ve read comments on Polish web sites that indeed it’s very expensive. I also think that it’s something that you first need to probably experience when you’ve had it in your hands, and I think that’s when you can really say if it’s worth the price."
