Kindle DX Launches With Larger Display
“This demonstrates our commitment to reinvention,” said Arthur O. Sulzberger Jr., The New York Times chairman, at the press conference. “This is an important milestone in the convergence between print and digital.”
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.
