Amazon has updated its Kindle eReader just in time for the holidays. The device has been enhanced with battery life that lasts 85% longer than the previous unit and Amazon is now integrating a native PDF reader.

With the new battery, the device can last up to seven days with wireless turned on compared to the four days of run time the device had before. Battery life with wireless off is the same two weeks that the machine had before. The improvement comes from new power management features via a firmware update.

The Kindle now has a built-in PDF reader as well that lets users read documents in PDF format with conversion. The Kindle is in stock right now and available for shipment.
