All new, all graphite, all KindleDale Davies ▼ |
The new, graphite Kindle DX uses Amazon's all new electronic ink display with 50 percent improved contrast for the clearest text and the sharpest images. That 9.7-inch diagonal e-ink screen is ideal for a broad range of reading material, including graphic-rich books, PDFs, newspapers, magazines, and websites.
Unlike backlit computer or LCD screens, Kindle DX's screen looks and reads like real paper, with no glare. Read as easily in bright sunlight as in the living room. Kindle books can be read on the devices people use every day, including Kindle, Kindle DX, PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, Android phone, and BlackBerry. Plus, Amazon's Whispersync technology also automatically saves and synchronizes customer book libraries and last page read across all these devices.
Amazon now offers free 3G wireless with no monthly bills or annual contracts. Customers can shop 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. The new Kindle DX offers 3G wireless coverage in more than 100 countries. Battery life is also outstanding: you can read up to one whole week on a single charge with wireless on or two weeks with wireless turned off.
New Twitter and Facebook integration enables the millions of Kindle customers to post meaningful passages and share their love of reading instantly with family and friends, and in turn, help them discover new authors, new books, and new ideas. With Kindle DX's large display and built-in PDF reader, read professional and personal documents with more complex layouts without scrolling, panning, or zooming, and without re-flowing. Zoom capability is now available in Kindle DX for easily viewing small print and detailed tables or graphics.
Auto-rotating screen allows you to read in portrait or landscape mode and the text-to-speech feature can read you newspapers, magazines and books out loud.
At just over 1/3 of an inch, Kindle DX is as thin as most magazines and you can carry up to 3,500 books, magazines or documents with you. A truly exciting device. ■
