Kindle 4NT wish list

Some things I'd like to see my Kindle be able to do...

1) Download other file types such as JPG, TXT, PDF, etc.

2) Nested Collections

3) Show metadata generated by Calibre in the Book Description option

KT supports PDF, do you say K4NT doesn't?

Although PDF support in KT is pathetic at best IMO No way to read comfortably normal PDF pages as KT shows them in full-page-to-full-screen mode which means letters are usually extremely small, and if you zoom in KT won't wrap long lines & won't allow you to flip the page...

Yes, you can open and read a PDF (with the limitations you state above) on the K4NT, but you can't download a pdf to your Kindle using the browser. If you try you get this message:

Web Browser cannot download this kind of file. Only files with the extension .AZW, .PRC, .MOBI, or .TXT can be downloaded to your Kindle.
