Question Overdrive Question

So, Phoenix Public's Overdrive site just bounced me to a page where I can enter a "PID" for Mobipocket books.

I remember reading (but could not find it again) that Kindles have a PID that will work here. Is this true for the K3?

I have no interest in circumventing DRM, and I can certainly wait for access to the Overdrive books--I just ran into it and thought I'd ask.

to get your kindle 3's pid go here and enter your kindle's serial number. it'll give it to you and spit out an error as well, ignore the error.
