Amazon makes new Kindle Paperwhite waterproof — and it still starts at $129 - but no other major feature improvements

Purely my opinion but after such a long wait for an updated model, this really does not inspire me to upgrade my Paperwhite... Waterproofing is "nice" but I have got a plastic bag, and its just not a thing I've been missing.

What I'd like to have seen was ePub support (Amazon must have heard of the world's most popular open ebook format - so that my Kindle could be the "one" device I use), audio speakers, maybe a colour eInk screen, etc.
