I attended this morning’s Amazon Press Event at Pace University where the new Amazon Kindle DX was unveiled. The DX is a Kindle with a screen twice as large as the Kindle 2’s screen, measuring 9.7 inches diagonally with a resolution of 1200 x 824 pixels. I give my first impressions of holding it in this post over on Obsessable: Hands on with the Kindle DX.
We also have video of the Kindle DX in action.
It’s definitely cool, but a bit too big. The only reason I find myself wanting one is for the native PDF support. If Amazon would offer the PDF support as a paid-for update to the Kindle 2, I’d spend at least $30 on that.
A slideshow of a bunch of blurry Flickr photos from the event are below.
