Well, i already had my touch in spanish with Locale Hack... Landscape mode isn't something i have ever tried, but there is a hack for that too...

I would love to be able of organizing collections in several levels (I mean collections within collections); that would be great!!!

Saludos Miguel Angel!!!

Well, i think that upgrade is more difficult. No one of Kindle have that organization... It's a weak point of Kindle against others ebooks.

We know that there will be new KT firmware for the European launch on 27th April. Let's wait and see what happens then.

According to the Kindle Touch page on european amazon shops, KT will have landscape mode and language selection!

Quote:
Rotate Between Portrait and Landscape Mode
Switch between portrait and landscape orientation to read maps, graphs and tables more easily.

Apparently I'm not terribly persuasive .... Anyway, I come to chat with an Amazon agent that literally said:
"Is going to launch a software update to Kindle Touch, changing the language and other functions, but i do not have a specific date and time, and i'm only can confirm that will be available."
