Flash! Kindle 3 3.03 early preview available

Amazon has released an early preview of a new software update for the Kindle 3

Kindle Software Update

Rumor has it that it blocks some security holes (which some people won’t like, since they are using those holes). 

It’s also supposed to provide some “general performance improvements”.  What that typically suggests is that you do the same things you did before, but they work better.  It might mean improved web browsing, faster “page turns”, that kind of thing.  If there were signficant changes, I would guess they would be showing them.

I’m not going to update this morning (too busy if something goes wrong), but I may do it in the next day or two. 

If you get it and notice a change, please let me know.

    I’m hoping this will fix the problem with the Go To box getting stuck on the screen and preventing reading… We seem to be getting that a lot on the forums…

      Thanks for writing, tuxgirl!

      Yep, I’ve heard about that one. I could also see it tweaking the wi-fi connection process…that would be nice.

    I saw that when you reopen a pdf file appear a message ‘opening page x from y’. I don’t remember that on kindle 3.0.2
