More flexible wireless connectivity

Currently Kindles do not support enterprise WiFi networks, which locks them out of our campus networks. They have no notion of security certificates etc.

That makes it impossible to sell to students since our campus has a secured network.

Upgrading the networking, and making the browser Java- and Flash-capable would make Kindles a much more attractive proposition.

One more vote for 802.1x support.

I'd much rather be using the high speed wireless at work instead of the slow GPRS connection. Amazon would be saving money on data charges too.

Remember to let amazon know your wishes too - the more people request this the more likely they'll do something about it

I don't think this will hapen, the Kindle screen doesn't lend its self to moving images. Not sure it could handle it processor power wise either.

well depending on what you wanted to do with Java it would be possible (just look at some of the lower end android phones) but flash is never going to happenReading Kindle
