Amazon ‘s new expensive Kindle DX is coming:
Amazon introduced the third edition of its Kindle this morning, a version that, in addition to offering trade books, will now display textbooks, computer books and cookbooks on a 9.7 inch electronic display screen that includes 16 shades of grade—the same gray-scale as the Kindle 2. Magazines and newspapers, already available on the Kindle, will increase their presence on the new device. Price for Kindle DX is $489 and Amazon will start shipping the device in the summer.
This picture, from Amazon’s website, strongly implies that the Kindle might be more comics friendly — and that’s probably just how Amazon intended it.
