Kindles Gets Improvements

11/24/2009 02:46:39 PM Eastern

Seattle - Amazon.com announced it improved its newest Kindle
e-reader (worldwide, 6-inch version) by offering 85 percent more battery life
and a native PDF reader.

The Kindle now has a battery life of up to seven days, even with
the wireless feature turned on, compared with four days previously.  Battery life
with the wireless turned off remains at two weeks.

The company said the improvement is the result of six months of
testing to improve the Kindle's firmware.  

The new native PDF reader lets users transfer personal and
professional documents, a feature found on several other leading e-readers.
