Kindle DX is a Calculator

Looks like I’ve found a new Easter Egg in Kindle DX. I’ve just tested my Kindle 2 and it doesn’t seem to do the trick with 2.0.3 software.

If you type mathematical expression like 2+2 in the search box on the home page the result shown would be result of this expression. See screenshot:

I’ve played around with it and it seems to support following operations:

  • Basic math: plus, minus, multiplication, division, power (^) and square root (sqrt)
  • Parenthesis
  • Trigonometry: sin, cos, tan, atan
  • Division by zero yields infinity result (∞)

I found this by sheer chance as I was trying to use search to find one of the two hundred PDF files I’m testing Kindle DX with right now by a portion of it’s name (6-2-3). Turns out Kindle DX doesn’t index file names but it did tell me that 6-2-3=1 :)
