Amazon’s newest Kindle DX is more than $100 cheaper

2010 Kindle DXAmazon.com has a new version of the Kindle DX. It’s the bigger brother of the regular Kindle. ┬áThe most obvious difference is that the Kindle DX has a 9.7″ E-ink screen while the Kindle has a 6″ display.

So what’s new in the new DX? Here’s the rundown:

  • 50% better contrast
  • can be read in direct sunlight
  • now in charcoal graphite color
  • free 3G wireless, globally too
  • battery life is now rated at 1 week with wireless on
  • And the biggest change has to be that they dropped the price to $379 (from $489)

Wow, just realized that there are now over 600,000 books in the Kindle Store. Remember when it was still at 170k? Hmm… maybe B&N needs to make a nook DX?!
