Amazon finally has launched its 9.7-inch electronic ink display bearing ‘Kindle DX’ worldwide. And would be available from Jan 19th 2010.
It boasts 16 shades of gray for clear text and sharp images which connects via cellular 3G networks used by majorly all cellphones right now. This makes it a good buy for India , as we already have limited Wi-Fi hotspots to connect to. Kindle DX wirelessly downloads books, magazines, newspapers and personal documents of high resolutions.
Kindle was first launched in India in October 2009 but failed to make a major impact due to lack of 3G connectivity all over the country. You can pre-order your DX from Amazon at a price of $489
Kindle DX has a 4GB storage capacity which could fit in 3,500 books on a single device. Also being a native PDF reader, users can wirelessly receive their PDF format documents on their Kindle if they have wireless coverage or can move them over using a USB connection. The large display helps to read documents with more complex layouts without scrolling, panning or zooming, and without re-flowing.
Along with all this DX has a experimental read-to-me feature “Text-to-Speech” that converts words on a page to spoken word so customers have the option to read or listen. Customers can switch back and forth between reading and listening, and their spot is automatically saved. Pages turn automatically while the content is being read so customers can listen hands-free. Using the read-to-me feature with books, newspapers, magazines, and personal documents, Kindle DX can read to you. It also has built-in access to The New Oxford American Dictionary and Wikipedia.
