Does anyone have experience installing something like CoolReader 3 onto the Amazon Kindle Touch? Specifically, I'm interested in looking at a way to possibly read ePub files on the Kindle Touch through unsupported methods (and ideally, without converting from ePub to Mobi in Calibre).
I am going to buy a kindle touch. But, I already have a huge collection of ePub books which I want to read on the kindle. After doing some search, I found a software called Calibre which converts ePub to mobi format. My question is, will the converted books behave the same way like the books bought on kindle or will they behave like PDF on kindle where you need to zoom in and zoom out?
I'm really interested in purchasing an Amazon Kindle Touch. However, being based in the UK means that there is still no word of a British release for the Touch (only the classic Keyboard and newer Wi-Fi only click-wheel models are available in the UK).
I'm considering taking the plunge and importing a Kindle Touch 3G. Would it work outside American shores?
How can I use a spanish dictionary (Larousse, not from the Kindle Store)? I copied it into my Documents folder, and in my dictionaries it shows under the "English" section. Even if I select it there, it's not working. Any ideas? Thanks.
Has anyone figured out how to wipe dust or whatever off of the screen without changing pages?
Is there a way to reset the "Furthest page read" location. I jumped ahead in this commentary I am reading and because of that I can not use the sync to keep my devices on the same page. I would think it would be simple to do but I don't see it.....
Anybody have this issue? My Kindle Touch seems to take forever to wake up from stand-by (from the screen that shows ads). When I press the power button, sometimes it can take 10 seconds plus to wake the Kindle. I don't have many books in it. The only "cure" seems to be a hard reboot, then after a while it will be the same.
I just got a Kindle Touch and it seems fantastic, but I'd like a little more protection for that gorgeous screen. I'd love for something along the lines of the iPad 2's smart cover, which doesn't add much bulk to the device itself but still guards the tablet well.
Any recommendations? Amazon's leather lighted cover seems nice, but it's way more expensive than I'd hoped.
For anyone familiar with the Kobo Touch, you know that one of the reader's best features is its phenomenal pinch/zoom and panning capabilities. Though choppy in the traditional e-ink fashion, the Kobo is a panning beast--which is stellar for people like me (students) who consume a lot of readings via scanned PDFs assigned by professors.

I wanted to know if anyone could speak to how the Kindle performs with this kinda thing.
I have question regarding the Kindle Touch WiFi and web browsering. Am I right that I suppose that this Kindle Touch WiFi allows to browse all webpages (e.g. google mail or any other website) by using WiFI as the previous models. Or only Amazon website is allowed through WiFi connection?
Thanks for reply
I'm wrestling with whether I should sell my Kindle when the Kindle fire shows up, or keep it around. There are positive things about the e-ink kindles like sunlight reading and battery life that make me think I should keep it in a drawer for specific circumstances. What are your plans?
That's what it sounds like, so I guess that means no borrowing books to read on a Kindle app on an iPad or iPhone or Android phone. Understandable, since they want people to buy more devices.
I am trying to decide between the Touch and the Kindle Keyboard.. I have been using a Blackberry for years, as required by work. The keys on the keyboard are very tiny in comparison to my stubby fingertips, and I frequently hit two keys at once unless I use a stylus to type. Will I have the same problem with the Keyboard? Is the Touch screen keyboard adequate, if typing a document? I see no measurements anywhere on this point. Hard to believe, but this is my first Kindle, as I have been...
Any guesses? How many days passed before the past models were starting to be shipped outside the U.S?
