New Software Update for Kindle Keyboard (Kindle 3)

Like most of us were expecting, a new software update, the 3.3 version,  was released today for the Kindle Keyboard (or Kindle 3 for those used to its old name). We saw this one coming as soon as Amazon launched the kindle 4 with a new software.


But what are we getting from this new update? Let's see what Amazon tell us about the new features included:

Download your archived Personal Documents on Kindle Keyboard: You can now view and download your archived personal documents to your Kindle Keyboard conveniently anywhere at any time. Your personal documents will be stored in your Kindle library until you delete them.
Whispersync for Personal Documents on Kindle Keyboard: Just as with Kindle books, Whispersync automatically synchronizes your last page read, bookmarks and annotations for personal documents (with the exception of PDFs) across the Kindle devices. Learn more about Kindle Personal Document Service on www.amazon.com/kindlepersonaldocuments  

AmazonLocal deals on Kindle Keyboard with Special Offers: Kindle Keyboard with Special Offers users in many regions can now view,purchase, and redeem AmazonLocal deals directly from Kindle Keyboard -- no computer, no printer, no hassle. AmazonLocal offers savings up to 75% off products and services from businesses in your city, national chains and online merchants. Learn more about AmazonLocal on www.amazonlocal.com.  
Voice Guide Shortcut: Kindle Keyboard users can now quickly turn the Voice Guide feature on and off by holding the Shift key and pressing Spacebar. Voice Guide reads aloud menu options, content listings and item descriptions. 

To download and install the new update click here and follow Amazon´s guidelines.

This update makes, IMHO, the Kindle Keyboard even more appealing than it was already with its legacy software. Inf here was any doubt for me wether I liked the Kindle 3 better than the Kindle 4, they´re all gone. Here´s a couple of pictures, one of my Kindle Keyboard updating, the other of how the new menu looks like.

So now, wth this new update, Kindle Keyboard has access to Amazon's cloud, making it super easy to sync all of your books, notes and clippings.

Get in the cloud with your Kindle Keyboard!
