Uhh, the k3 has annotating/dictionary/highlighting.

The k2 doesn't... at least not yet. The K2 can zoom and all the other stuff in 2.5.... and so can the K3.

I know, sorry - I was talking about the zooming/landscape/etc (that is, the viewing) functions.

Yes. K3 adds: annotation (text notes/highlighting), dictionary lookup, & contrast adjustment (to compensate for color->greyscale flattening). (the video doesn't show any of these in action)

The zoom/pan functions shown in the video were added in the latest K2 update, so nothing new there. It'd be awful nice if Amazon has at least one more update in store for K2/DX, but we'll have to wait and see on that.

And I hope they plan PDF link support for a future update on K3, if not K2/DX.

Do we still have to send PDFs via Amazon email for conversion into viewable Kindle files, or can we now directly upload PDFs into Kindle? Thanks!

ANYONE has feedback about the PDF contrast settings? I would really want to know if we can get better font rendering with this option...
thanks!

Check out Erinath's videos? The second one is about .pdfs in the K3.
