Amazon Announces Kindle DX

The Kindle DX is listedfor pre-order at the Amazon.com web site with a release date listed as "summer."  It sports a thickness of just 1/3 on an inch with a 9.7" diagonal display, larger than the current Kindle models.  More details at the Kindle DX page.   A nice analysis of what this all means and where Amazon is taking this product is at CNNMoney.  Obviously Amazon wants to reach out beyond the older demographic where the Kindle is most popular.  The new model has the right features that can expand the mainstream appeal of this technology.  I remain skeptical of the over all success of Kindle, but changes to the product made over time have softened that.  At $489 a pop, however, Amazon has more work to do on the price point.
