Amazon Introduces New Kindle DX Priced at $379


Amazon's new Kindle DX will sell for $379, down from $489, and have free 3G wireless connection with no monthly bills or annual contracts, the company said.

Kindle DX is the 9.7-inch screen member of Amazon's family of portable readers. The new Kindle DX features a new graphite enclosure and a new high contrast electronic ink display with 50 percent better contrast, the company said. Unlike backlit computer or LCD screens, Kindle DX's screen looks and reads like real paper, with no glare.

Users may access the Kindle Store and download new content wirelessly in less than 60 seconds?all without a PC, Wi-Fi hot spot, or syncing. Amazon pays for the 3G wireless connectivity, so there are no monthly fees or annual contracts. Kindle DX offers 3G wireless coverage in the U.S. or abroad in over 100 countries.

The device is also offering an increased battery life - up to 1 week on a single charge with wireless on or 2 weeks with wireless turned off.

A new Twitter and Facebook integration enables Kindle customers to post passages at the social networking sites. Other features include a built-In PDF Reader, an auto-rotating screen and the Read-to-Me text-to-speech feature, which allows Kindle DX read newspapers, magazines, blogs, and books out loud.

The Kindle Store (www.amazon.com/kindlestore) now has more than 620,000 books, including New Releases and 108 of 111 New York Times bestsellers, starting at $9.99 or less. More than 200,000 books have been added to the U.S. Kindle Store in just the last six months, Amazon.com said.

The new Kindle DX is available for pre-order starting today at www.amazon.com/kindledx and it ships July 7.

Apple's iPad, launched in April, can also function as an e-reader. It sold more than 2 million units in its first 60 days and its own e-bookstore has quickly won market share, putting pressure on rival readers like Kindle and Barnes & Noble's Nook.
