Kindle Touch Firmware 5.1.0
The serial numbers shown on both sites start with "B00F", so it appears that all Kindle Touches will share the common firmware, not country-specific versions.
This is a big update (38.5 MB) and takes some time to install (2 installations/reboots), but it is well worth the wait . . . as the amazon.co.uk store now works with the Kindle Touch!!!
Here are the official changes:
- Language Support: Customize your Kindle Touch with the language you prefer: English (US and UK), German, French, Spanish, Italian, or Brazilian Portuguese.
- Landscape Mode: Switch between portrait and landscape orientation in books and PDFs to read maps, graphs, and tables more easily.
- Instant Translations: Tap any word or highlight a section to instantly translate into other languages, including Spanish, Japanese, and more. Translations by Bing Translator.
- Kindle Format 8: Formatting and layout improvements make Kindle books look even better.
- Wi-Fi Enhancements: Connect your Kindle Touch to Wi-Fi with WPS and select WPA2 Enterprise networks.
- Read-to-Me With Text-to-Speech: Have your Kindle Touch read English-language content out loud to you, now including summaries of newspaper and magazine articles when available from the publisher.
- More Sharing Options: Tell others what you're reading on Facebook or Twitter from anywhere within a book — just tap to share a link along with your comments.
- Onscreen Keyboard Suggestions: Search and shop faster with automatic word suggestions as you type.
