With all of the new devices on the market from Amazon, it’s nice to still see the earlier models remain supported. The company today unveiled a new update to the Kindle Keyboard 3rd generation model and brings a slew of new updates.
One of the new features in this build is extensive parental controls. You can restrict the ability to access the web browser, buy books, and access archived items. Amazon also made this model more viable with support for the KF8.The Kindle Keyboard now supports comic books with Kindle Panel View. Supported titles can be purchased from the Kindle Store. Books open in Kindle Panel View by default (a view that allows you to read a comic book panel by panel). Also, there is now support for children’s picture books with Kindle Text Pop-Up. Supported titles can be purchased from the Kindle Store.
The last and final option is WhisperSync for Voice! Now you can switch back and forth between reading and listening without losing your place. Whispersync for Voice will synchronize what you read on any Kindle platform device with Audible playback on Kindle Keyboard, Kindle Fire, or on Audible apps for iPhone and Android.
