Amazon Kindle & PDF, TXT
Amazon Kindle is a series of eBook readers now in its fourth generation. Amazon Kindle eReaders enable users to shop for, download, browse, and read e-books, newspapers, magazines, blogs, and other digital media via wireless networking.
The first generation Kindle can read only unprotected Mobipocket books (MOBI, PRC), plain TXT files, Topaz format books (TPZ), and Amazon's proprietary DRM-restricted format (AZW).
The Kindle 2 added native PDF capability with the Version 2.3 firmware upgrade. Earlier versions could not generally read PDF files, but Amazon provided "experimental" conversion to the native AZW format, with the caveat that not all PDFs may format correctly.
The fourth generation Kindle, Kindle Touch and Kindle Touch 3G are able to display Kindle AZW, TXT, PDF, unprotected MOBI, and PRC files natively. HTML, DOC, DOCX, JPEG, GIF, PNG, and BMP are usable through conversion.
If you are using the ealier versions of Kindle and want to read PDF files, you may need to convert the PDF to Kindle (TXT) first. If you are using the later versions which support reading PDF files, there may also be some problem that you won't get text reflow. You can email that PDF document to your Kindle account, write "Convert" in the subject line, and Amazon will convert it for you. Or you can use one of several conversion software, PDFMate Free PDF Converter, which is an easy-to-use PDF solution for converting PDF to other popular file formats, including TXT.
PDF to TXT conversion isn't always the greatest. If it's text only, you won't have a problem. But if it has a lot of graphs and things, it doesn't come out so well - you can only extract the text content from the original PDF files..
