Amazon’s latest Kindle model, the Kindle DX, ships today for a flat price of $489. The biggest differences between the DX and the Kindle 2 are the larger 9.7″ diagonal screen, a native PDF reader, and the larger 3.3GB storage (roughly 3500 books).
Another new feature is auto-rotate which is pretty nice for formats like newspapers or pages with landscape diagrams, although it is a bit slow to transition from one to the other. The 9.7-inch screen is a 1200×824 pixel resolution at 150dpi. The DX weighs just over 1lb (19 oz total).
While the price tag may seem high, remember that you get free lifetime wireless access on the 3G Sprint network, so no searching for a WiFi hotspot.
