That’s right, believe it or not, Amazon is actually helping out the environment by churning out another Kindle, just months after the latest one. Apparently, the Kindle 2 is not enough for avid newspaper readers and magazine subscribers. So to save more trees, they rolled out the Kindle DX.
This device, a bigger and badder big brother of the Kindle 2, has been in the rumor mill for a couple of weeks now. Boasting of a 9.7″ display, it’s fronting to be just as thick as regular magazines. We can forgive Amazon for not making this wafer-thin, considering the power they packed in it.
My favorite bit of the Kindle DX? Built-in PDF reader — it’s about time they recognized this program that mobile readers cannot ignore. How can you resist some of the free e-books floating around?
Of course, Amazon wants you to buy your e-Books from them too, which is why the Kindle DX is marketed as an alternative to magazines, newspapers, and textbooks. Yep, students will no longer have to shield their nicely Stabilo-ed textbooks from their delinquent classmates. Now all their textbooks fit nice and easy in their Kindle DX. To make sure that this becomes a reality, 5 publishers have already signed in with Amazon to publish Kindle-friendly versions of some textbooks.
Did I mention that connecting to the Kindle bookstore is free of charge? The Kindle bookstore can be accessed via wireless 3G, but logging in to it is paid for by Amazon. Who says there’s no such thing as a free breakfast?
Hurry, it’s on a first come first served basis. So the sooner your order, the sooner you’ll get it right at your doorstep.
