The Kindle 2, developed by Amazon, allows users to download and read ebooks while on the go. Many ebooks are produced in PDF format, including those downloaded directly from the Kindle's preinstalled Amazon marketplace. However, you are not limited to PDFs. You can scan books into your computer as JPG image files and view them on the Kindle 2. In just a few minutes, you can upload a JPG ebook or family photo to use on your Kindle 2.
