Bigger, Badder Amazon Kindle DX Revealed to the World

The existing Amazon Kindle may be a resounding success for the online bookstore, but there’s always room for improvement. So, today the all-new Amazon Kindle DX was revealed to the world, boasting a screen that’s 2.5 times bigger than the regular Kindle.

The new Amazon Kindle DX is being largely designed for the purpose of reading newspapers and magazines, but you could just as easily use it for reading your standard e-books as well. The 9.7-inch E-ink screen rocks a resolution of 1200 x 824 and comes with 16 shades of grey.

The 4GB of internal storage is about twice as big as before. Other notable features include the 1/3-inch profile, “long” battery life, native PDF support, and EVDO connectivity via WhisperNet. The navigation buttons are only along the right side.

One of the cooler inclusions, aside from the bigger screen, is the automatic landscape and portrait text orientation. Turn the Kindle on its side and read stuff in landscape.

The good news? The Kindle DX should be ready in time for this summer. The bad news? It’ll put you back a cool $489.
