Its finally here, the new Kindle DX at a new price. However, before you begin to think of an whole new Kindle DX out to replace the current version, here it is, the new aspect is just limited to the color of the Kindle and that it now comes at a price that’s lower than the previous Kindle DX by $110.So its now $379, down from the $489 that it would have cost before, .i.e. during the pre-iPad days.
The Kindle DX will however, continue to be 3G ready and does not include any monthly bills or annual contracts. Amazon is currently taking pre-orders for the device which has started from today with the actual deliveries slated to begin from the 7th of July.
The display continues to be black and white though Amazon claims the new DX incorporates a new e-ink screen with 50 percent improved contrast. What this boils down to is clearer text and sharper images. The screen will continue to be of the same size, 9.7 inches though it now is enclosed within a eye catching dark graphite frame.
More on this awaited. So keep watching.
