According to MobileRead forum you can jail break the Amazon's latest reading device Kindle 3 to unlock some cool features. Ninety percent of the limitation come from the software side. That is clear as we can see hacks and jailbreaks for each modern devices they release with some crazy limitation.

Following is the list of programs used in this hack.
