From what I understand Kindle's "free" book download (whispersync??) isn't free! {gasp|shock} They charge the authors per MB for people to download. After that fee is taken out then they split the remaining "profit" with the author.

So, they can certainly up the maximum image size - but it would directly decrease authors profits...end result...book prices would go up.

Based on Amazon's business model, I don't see that happening.

It would be nice to give the customer the choice though...hi-res = $1 more or no charge for internet download or something.
