Kindle DX Starts Shipping From Amazon Today

Kindle DX Released Today: You Buying?

Happy Kindle DX day! Today, the third-generation of the Kindle — the DX — starts shipping from Amazon.

The Kindle DX is the biggest Kindle so far (the display is 9.7-inches), which is good and bad, depending on your needs. On one hand, it makes it less portable, even though it remains slim, but on the other, you can read books and newspapers more easily — and you can finally read PDFs.

Not only that, but textbooks should be available soon, and its high price tag ($489) is set to be subsidized by a few newspapers. All in all, it's a strong offering for an eBook reader.

I'm in the market for a Kindle but am not sure quite when I'll be buying, but I'm curious to see if any of my readers are taking the shot on the Kindle DX today (or any other day). Tell me, will you be joining the celebrity throngs who've gone Kindle?
