Flash! New update for the Kindle Keyboard (AKA Kindle 3)
Well, this may clear up the weird things that have been happening with the personal document service (see this earlier post).
It’s a new software update (3.3) for the Kindle Keyboard (formerly knows as the Kindle 3).
What does it do?
- Lets you download archived personal documents
- Lets you Whispersync personal documents
- Lets you get AmazonLocal if you have a device that already does Special Offers
- Lets you turn on VoiceGuide with Shift+Spacebar
This doesn’t indicate that it is connected to the new “Send All” address option(s). My Mindle (that’s what I call the new $79 Kindle) is here (more on that later), so I still need to test that.
This is going to install automatically when you are connected to wi-fi (and not at all by 3G…all Kindle Keyboards have wi-fi, it’s just that some of them also have 3G…3G costs Amazon money, so I don’t see a problem with this). You can also get more information and get to where you can download it manually here:
If it doesn’t update by itself soon, I’ll manually update it and test it out for you.
By the way, the VoiceGuide thing is a big step forward for the visually impaired. VoiceGuide is the audible menu option. It used to be that you had to go into the menu and turn it on…which was hard without audible menus. :) This makes it simple.
Feel free to let me know what you think about the update…
