Just a week after Barnes and Noble released their 1.3 update to the nook, Amazon begins the release of their update to the Kindle 2 and Kindle DX. From a post over at Engadget, we know that the update is rolling out to a limited group of users first, and then a full update to the masses in May.
What does the update get you?
- Ability to organize books and documents into “collections”
- Pan and zoom within PDFs
- Kindle password protection
- Two additional fonts
- Ability to “share book passages with friends on Facebook and Twitter”
Sharing what you read on Facebook and Twitter? I am not so sure about this one. Isnt that what a book club is for?
