New Kindle DX at Lower Price

Amazon's Kindle DX Gets an Upgrade, Lower Price

Amazon has announced an update to the Kindle DX, the larger-screened Kindle built to support textbooks and newspapers. The new device, which sells for $379 — down from the previous version's $480 — features a 9.7-inch display in a black frame. According to Amazon, the all-new e-ink screen has 50 percent better contrast. And it also includes free 3G wireless for instant downloading of books and other content.

The Kindle DX has had a rough time catching on; even with the recent reduction, its price is almost prohibitively high. And now that the iPad is available starting at $500, the Kindle DX seems almost obsolete, even if college and media companies agree to offer the device at a discount. One plus? I love the dark color of the new DX — here's hoping the sleek graphite color comes to the next version of the Kindle 2!
