Amazon's Kindle Gets Facebook and Twitter in Latest Software Update

Kindle Adds Facebook, Twitter Functionality to Latest Update

The ereader market is getting pretty competitive lately. With the release of the iPad, Amazon and Barnes & Noble are scrambling to add additional features to their devices to compete with the functionality of Apple's new ereader/tablet hybrid. The Nook already added a web browser, and now, the latest Kindle over the air update — scheduled to appear in May — will offer a few interactive qualities for your ereader. With the v2.5 update, you can share your favorite passages via Facebook and Twitter (and see which passages the Amazon community call their faves), while other updates, including pan and zoom for PDFs, password protection, and more font options, make the ereader easier to use. You don't have to do anything to download the update, as it will appear once Amazon rolls it out to the Kindle-toting masses.

I'm already a Kindle user and love it for its simplicity, so I'm not sure that Facebook and Twitter belong in my ereader. What do you think — are you excited about all the new interactive additions to ereaders today?
