Mainly the bit I've bolded, at a rough guess.

Now that they have released the pre-order for the new paperwhite, I am disappointed.

I would have loved the 7" paperwhite, and they were already using the screen on the oasis.

As I already have both the Voyage and the Oasis, nothing interesting for me either. The new homepage might be good, or not, it remains to be seen.

My bank account is ecstatic, of course. The poor thing has lived in constant fear and anxiety these past weeks.

Uploading your own or other geospatial PDFs for use as a low power navigation device that is visible in daylight for easy visibility while driving.

With waterproofing it would be the ideal outdoor fishing, hiking, or camping companion. Other devices simply drain too much battery and are not waterproof. Since Paperwhite is now waterproof, they are one step closer to that ideal.

Others hack in and connect an external GPS, but the power gets drained quickly, plus its one other device to try and manage.

Soon, color Eink devices will do this and replace other GPS navigation device screens for in car use.

An official wishlist would be the color Eink, but I'm confident that is coming. They are already shipping the screens. - Think of all the magazines. Or even as a rotating picture frame for you or desk when not reading.
