Amazon may have killed off the Kindle Keyboard in mid-2013 but that doesn't mean it has been entirely forgotten. A reader has tipped me to a new firmware update for this 4-year-old device which fixes a few user complaints.
Amazon hasn't released a changelog for the update, but my source told me that the v3.4.1 update fixes the web browser issues which users first identified in October 2014.
KK owners reported, both here in the comment section and elsewhere online, that they were no longer able to access Facebook and Twitter. As a result of a shift in security protocols, many sites became inaccessible, and I am told that today's update fixes that issue. I can't test it myself, but I can see that it is a small update which is 80KB in size. You can download the update from Amazon.
Originally launched in 2010, the KK is the last Kindle model to both sport a keyboard and support TTS. These features have made it very popular among certain users, just not popular enough to inspire Amazon to release a new model.
