Amazon Kindle DX.

All new Kindle DX is out in the market and has several things to offer its users. For those who have been using Kindle 1 and Kindle 2 will see certain features upgraded in this version. To start with, it’s very slim and is just over 1/3 of an inch, has a very large display of 9.7 inch with good pixel resolution and just weighs 18 ounces approx. It has an internal storage of about 4GB.

On a single charge, you can use this device for up to 4 days with wireless on and up to 2 weeks with the wireless turned off. It is also 3G wireless enabled and also has USB port, in case you need to connect to a PC. It has built in speaker with 3.5mm audio jack.

One feature you would notice would be the ‘Text-to-Speech’; Kindle DX can read books, magazines, newspaper and other text files for the user unless the right holder has disabled it.

The new Amazon Kindle DX, hold up to 3500 books and periodicals. It has native PDF reader which was not supported in the previous versions. The device supports several formats like AZW, PDF, TXT, Mp3, AAX, HTML, DOC, JPEG and RTF. Although it has a native PDF reader it does not allow the user to edit the document nor does it allow the user to magnify the documents. Perhaps this is where Kindle DX missed out. It has QWERTY keyboard, but certain keys are merged which sometimes gets over your head.

The Kindle DX also has Auto-Rotate feature which auto rotates the document from landscape to portrait (vice-versa) view whenever the user turns the device.

Whenever you buy a book from, a back up copy of each book is maintained at .

With a lot of upgrades from the previous versions, there is something the users would have expected the Kindle DX to come up with- ‘Organized folder’ for all the files in the device besides sorting them by author and title but unfortunate that it’s still missing.
