Amazon Kindle 3 Gets Hacked & Jailbroken

Amazon’s latest reading device, the Kindle 3, can also be hacked and jailbroken like previous generation Kindles, giving it access to more fonts and screensaver options, and USB networking. Slashgear posted news of the hack on their blog, and you can head on over to Mobileread to get details about the hack and the downloadable file to load onto your Kindle 3 to jailbreak that device. Though the hack may be a bit complicated for the average consumer–precisely the demographics Amazon is targeting with its Kindle release–it may be fun for geeks to differentiate their Kindle devices from the rest of the masses with special fonts and screensavers. Hack away!
