Amazon Kindle DX – bigger, thinner and still US only

Share

Amazon-kindle-DX.jpgAll of America is laughing at Europe once again as Amazon launches the US-only Kindle DX reader.

The e-ink gadget has shot up to a 9.7-inch screen size while magically slimming down to a hyper-thin 0.38 inches and a weight of just 535g. It’ll now also deal with PDF files natively rather than having to convert them.

The screen is 250% bigger than the old incarnation, the battery lasts 20% longer and the whole device is 100% less ugly. You can download books over 3G and Wi-Fi in under a minute without paying any kind of monthly subscription and there’s already a library of over 275,000 novels as well as a wealth of newspapers after deals were struck with the New York Times and Wall Street Journal as well as magazines including The New Yorker and Time.

The Kindle DX packs 4GB (3.3 usable) of storage, it charges in four hours by micro USB and has a 3.5mm jack for audio playback. It’s available for $489.00 and is largely useless anywhere outside the US.

All kinds of tv shows can be agreed into three types in accordance with the therapy of human being, irrespective of those complicated categorization. Obviously apart from those fact plans, like The Glee Project DVD.
