I've been told that the OCR text can be highlighted on a Kindle 3 and Kindle Touch (see this thread
), and presumably all newer versions. I'm not very pleased that Amazon has left the Kindle 2 (and DX, apparently) folks in the dust in this regard. And yes, I know I can get a 3.x update for the k2, but I prefer not to hack it.
What's also odd is that the kindle software for the iPad can't do PDF text highlighting. Or is that just because my iPad software is tied to my purchase of a Kindle 2? Anybody know?
