If you are looking to pick up an e-book reader, then the Paperwhite makes sense. It has features otherwise reserved for its more expensive sibling like water resistance, 8GB storage and a 300ppi screen. It has good battery life and if reading is all you are going to do, then the Paperwhite can be your new best friend. However, we wish Audible support was there in India and the device had physical buttons on its bezels like the ones we saw on the Voyager. Adaptive brightness would have been the cherry on the cake. Even without these features we think the Kindle Paperwhite is a worthy device for those that read a lot. Having used the Oasis, I didn’t miss the adaptive brightness on the Paperwhite at all (mostly because I like to manually set the brightness). If you pick up the new Paperwhite, then rest assured that it will last you for years to come.
