Amazon has officially announced that along with its Kindle Fire tablet, a new format for Kindle books will be introduced. Replacing Mobi 7, Kindle Format 8 (KF8) is the next generation file format for Kindle books. One of the most important features about KF8 will be the inclusion of HTML5 support. This will allow publishers to create great-looking books with rich formatting and design to take advantage of the Kindle Fire’s full color display.
“KF8 will include over 150 new formatting capabilities, including fixed layouts, nested tables, callouts, sidebars, and Scalable Vector Graphics, opening up more opportunities to create Kindle books that readers will love.”
KF8 will see the introduction of interactive experiences for comic books and children’s novels, and even text books and cookbooks. Find out more about Kindle Format 8. How many of you have plans to pick up the Amazon Kindle Fire when it goes on sale?
