  1. The battery boost is great news! Hopefully their estimates are reasonably accurate.

    Does anyone know what version number this software update is? Mine’s currently showing 2.2.2, but I’m not sure if it’s changed.

  2. The new firmware is version 2.3, Darrell. I haven’t received it yet either. Also, folks should realize that the battery boost is only for the Global Wireless Kindles that use the HSPA radio. Older Kindles in the U.S. running on Sprint’s EVDO network won’t see any battery gain. 🙁

  3. You can switch back and forth between reading and listening, and your spot is automatically saved. Pages automatically turn while the content is being read, so you can listen hands-free. You can choose from both male and female voices which can be sped up or slowed down to suit your preference. In the middle of a great book or article but have to jump in the car? Simply turn on Text-to-Speech and listen on the go.
