Advantage of KF8 w/Kindle Keyboard?
I have a Kindle Keyboard with ver. 3.3 firmware -- latest one I know of.
Recently I've been using the Calibre plugin tweak test_mobi_output_type = 'both' when converting ePub files to Mobi. The results are mostly much larger mobi files -- nothing more.
I know that Amazon's been porting their newer books to KF8, having re-downloaded some of my older purchases and seeing the new format and fatter files. But for the conversion purposes I mentioned, can anyone tell me the advantage given my Kindle model?

The Kindle Keyboard does not support KF8. Only .azw and .mobi. There hasn't been a firmware update to support it, and probably won't be. I belive that when given a KF8 file, it just displays the .mobi part.

All the combined KF8/Mobi does for you is take up more space on your Kindle. You only can read from the mobi part.
Suggestion is to generate just mobi & keep the ePub for correcting error and in case you someday get a Kindle that supports KF8 without the line height bug.
