Amazon Kindle 2 fee for personal documents

A few new changes for Kindle users. First you can send DOCX and RTF files wirelessly to your Kindle and they’ll be converted automatically for viewing. The cost will be .15 per megabyte starting May 4th.

For anyone who has recently sent personal documents to your Kindle, we'd like to let you know about some updates to our Personal Document Service (via Whispernet).

Starting May 4, in addition to the existing list of supported file types (DOC, HTML, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, TXT, AZW, MOBI, PRC), you can send RTF files to your Kindle email address for convenient wireless delivery. In addition to the existing experimental support of PDF, you can also send DOCX files for conversion. Some complex PDF and DOCX files might not format correctly on your Kindle.

We have also modified the fee associated with sending personal documents wirelessly to your Kindle. This fee is now based on the size of your file. The fee for Personal Document Service (via Whispernet) is 15 cents per megabyte rounded up to the next whole megabyte.

If you would like to download your personal documents for free, or if you are not in a wireless area, you can continue to send attachments to "name" to be converted. These documents will be e-mailed to your computer at the e-mail address associated with your account login.

As always, you can also use our free document conversion service for any document you want to transfer over USB, and you will not be charged.
