Kindle DX Launches With Larger Display
In addition to its larger size, Kindle DX features that improve upon the Kindle 2 include 3.3 GB of storage (equal to about 3,500 books), a native PDF reader, auto-rotate display, and the ability to choose the length of the lines of text displayed. Bezos noted that 275,000 books are now available on the Kindle, compared to 230,000 when the Kindle 2 was launched in early February.
The Kindle DX retails for $489. Customers may pre-order the device at http://Amazon.com/kindleDX. It will begin shipping this summer.
