What a kerfuffle, Amazon have moved over to their new KF8 format for all the newer Kindle Fire devices and the new Paperwhite Kindle devices currently being sold. Basically this means that any new Kindle released in the future will support the KF8 format, which in truth is a little like, but not exactly the same as, ePub3. It also means that the Kindle devices that currently operate with the older mobi based formatting will gradually be phased out.
So Amazon have stuck to their policy of having their own proprietary format for their eReaders. The main bone of contention, highlighted by many online publishers, with this strategy is of course that anyone that has bought one of the millions of older Kindle devices is now stuck with the AZW or similar with far less features than KF8 and the two are not compatible i.e. KF8 formatting cannot be used on the older Kindles without problems.
