The Amazon Kindle DX is Twice the Size of Its Predecessor

 - May 16, 2009
Amazon’s new Kindle DX is an addicting addition to the Kindle family for book lovers everywhere. Where you choose to use the magazine-width wireless gadget is your own business.

This modern reading tool has a 9.7-inch display which can display 16 shades of gray at 1200x824 resolution. In addition, Amazon’s Digital Text Platform lets authors self-publish directly to the Kindle. Late last year, Oprah Winfrey announced the Kindle as her new favorite gadget.

The Amazon Kindle DX, which was announced on May 6, has a larger screen than its predecessors, supports multiple file extensions, and is more suitable for displaying newspaper, textbook or uh... magazine content.
