Amazon unveils new 'sharper' Kindle DX
01.01.70 | Philip Jones
Amazon.com has launched a new Kindle DX promising a "new, improved electronic ink display, with 50% better contrast for the clearest text and sharpest images". The device, priced at $379, comes with free 3G and will be released on 7th July.
In a typically understated comment Steve Kessel, senior vice president, Amazon Kindle, said: "There's no turning back once you read on our beautiful new Kindle DX screen. With 50 percent better contrast and darker fonts, you'll find it easier than ever to read wherever you happen to be, whether it's outside in bright sunlight or under the low light of your living room. We're excited to offer the new Kindle DX with free 3G wireless at the lower price of $379."
