Amazon is offering their latest generation 9.7 inch Kindle DX at a $80 discount from the regular price of $379! You can reserve yours today by visiting the Amazon site and get it for only $299.00. This deal has only 18 hours left of being valid so I would recommend to capitalize on this as soon as you can.
The Amazon Kindle DX continues the trend of being Amazons largest e-reader to date. Featuring a 9.7 inch screen and 50% better contrast and resolution from previous models, it is certainly worth the discounted deal. Its screen displays a 1200 x 824 pixel resolution at 150 ppi, features 16-level gray scale, and a new 10:1 contrast ratio. You can also connect up to the internet via the free 3G service Amazon provides.
The Page turns on this device are lightning fast and only increase with some of the latest firmware updates. There is no lag turning the pages, and even accessing some of the menu functions is quick and easy.
This e-reader towers over the competition. Most electronic readers are only 6 inches or so, having a 9.7 inch e-reader is like reading a magazine, it is also as slim as one. It currently reads e-ink with greyscale which means you get a complete e-reading experience, with no eye strain. Maintaining the tradition of e-ink, means there is no glare in the direct sunlight.
Now there are some drawbacks with this device, mainly due to the fact it seems to never get firmware updates. While the Amazon 3rd generation Kindle WI FI and the 3G seem to get monthly updates adding all sorts of new features, the DX seems like the odd man out. It is a solid e-reader, no bones about that, but it lacks some of the social media functions and real page numbering the other ones have.
