Kindle Software Update 3.1 Adds Real Page Numbers

Posted by at 9:55 am on February 8, 2011

Many users complained about the weird Kindle page numbering system using locations instead of real page numbers. While we know Amazon had a good reason for since Kindle books can be read at different fonts sizes and on different screen sizes; the truth is that we are used to have real pages and the current numbering system is hard for many to understand.

Now with the new kindle firmware version 3.1, Amazon brings real page numbers to the Kindle 3 owners and  some other new improvements as the addition of public notes – you can make your notes and highlights public so others can see it, capability to rate a book right before you’ll finish reading it and a new and improved layout for newspapers and magazines.

The Kindle firmware update 3.1 is available now part of an advanced preview (download it manually here) or just wait until it will be pushed globally in the next several days.

The real page numbers will correspond directly to the printed edition, so expect several pages to get the same number on Kindle devices. The new feature will also be deployed in various Kindle applications available on PC, Android, iPhone / iPad, etc.
