A lot of people wonder if they can view PDF files on the kindle. The answer depends on which version of the Kindle you have.

Older versions of the Kindle can not view PDF files. If you have a PDF file that you would like to read on one of these older kindles you would have to first convert the PDF to a Kindle compatible format.

Newer versions of the Kindle (Version 2) are compatible with PDF files and no conversion of PDF files are needed provided the version 2.3 firmware is installed on the device.
