Kindle Gets Battery Boost, PDF Support

Amazon has released a series of software upgrades that make its Kindle eReader even more useful. The new software upgrades allow for more efficient management of wireless connectivity as it boosts the total battery charge to about seven days from four days, even with the wireless turned on. That’s a roughly 85 percent boost…not bad! In addition, the upgrade brings native PDF support to the 6-inch Kindles without first converting the file into a Kindle-readable format. You can simply email PDFs to your Kindle email address or move them to Kindle via the USB connection. Now that should make it easier for you to subscribe to and read all the research on GigaOM Pro on your Kindle :-)
