CES 2010: Brits get the Amazon Kindle DX from January 19th

Share

It’s been on the cards since the device first launched early on in 2009, and the news was all but confirmed when a link for a global device popped up and then quickly disappeared on their website yesterday. But now Amazon have finally officially announced that the Kindle DX will be available in over 100 countries worldwide, hitting UK shores on January 19th.

But is it too little too late? While the Kindle DX is a sturdy e-reader, with 3G web browsing and downloads, a PDF viewer and a 9.7 inch screen, it’s beginning to show its age, especially when compared to the feature-rich enTourage eDGe e-reader and the many colour screen e-readers set to be displayed this week.

Either way, you’ll be able to pick it up for about £305 when it launches later this month.
