    Amazon updated its best value Kindle with some of the coveted features found in its high-end, $249 Kindle Oasis. The new Kindle Paperwhite announced today has a thinner, lighter design that's now waterproof, making it the first Kindle other than the Oasis to have an IPX8 rating.
    Amazon last updated the Kindle Paperwhite in 2015, giving it a better screen without raising its price.
