Bummer, does it at least support well HTML (into which I can convert my PDFs?)
The Kindle essentially only
supports MOBI (it also reads TXT and single-file HTML renamed .txt). You can get Amazon to convert other files to this format via e-mail. This is free, but if you use whispernet to download it to your Kindle it in theory costs $0.10.
There is generally no need to do this. Calibre converts many formats (including PDF) to MOBI and so does Windows MobiPocket Reader and Creator. HTML converts ok to MOBI, and any PDF to MOBI starts with PDF to HTML.
