Good news this morning for Kindle owners; it seems you're likely to be waking up to some changes in the way your cloud documents storage works that results in a combined 10GB of free Amazon Cloud Drive. We've received a tip that this is pushing out, and that the merger of 5GB of Kindle documents and 5GB of Amazon Cloud Drive is now amounting to a combined 10GB account that covers everything. Pretty neat.

We've also confirmed that this is only applying to Kindle customers. Indeed, those of us without a Kindle are still languishing back on the 5GB free tier. The new combined account means that your previously Kindle exclusive 5GB can be used for other files such as images and videos. And that's just great.

Customers are being notified by email it seems, but if you've not seen one yet fire up your Cloud Drive and take a look!

Thanks Alex for the tip!

Amazon merging Kindle documents and Cloud Drive, 10GB combined free storage


My first tablet was a Kindle. I really want to like Amazon and Kindles but there is no reason at all that I can find to own one instead of a Nexus 7.

Amazon are really getting it together though.

Having 5gb for documents and ebooks only seemed ludicrous given the tiny file sizes of most ebooks, having a bit of flexibility seems very sensible. Well done Amazon.

I guess Kindle customers include those who use the app for Android because I never have owned Kindle hardware and I got the email this morning.
