Introduced a revolutionary wireless reading device, the Amazon Kindle. This is the perfect gadget for avid readers who are always on the go. With it, users will have access to thousands of literary works at their fingertips anytime, anywhere. Since its release, the device has undergone several significant improvements and upgrade. To date, Amazon has released four models of the electronic reader – Kindle, Kindle 2, Kindle 3, and Kindle DX. While the Kindle 2 and 3 models feature a 6 inch display (similar to the original version), the Kindle DX features a 9.7 inch display. Additionally, all versions are only less than 0.4 inches thick.
Despite the size difference, like other versions of Kindle, the Kindle DX also uses the E Ink Pearl electronic paper technology for its screen. This technology ensures a better reading experience for each user. If a regular backlit LCD screen of a tablet or laptop glares while viewed under bright sunlight, Kindle’s E Ink Pearl screen does not. In fact, the screen looks and reads like ordinary paper. Additionally, the Kindle DX also has eight adjustable font sizes for a more comfortable reading experience. With just a push of a button, you can easily increase or decrease the text size.
With a storage capacity of 4 GB, this electronic reading device can store up to 3,500 books, newspapers, magazines, journals, and other documents. Its Worry-Free Archive feature enables you to automatically keep an archival copy of your e-books even when you have deleted them. This way, you can re-download them anytime without having to pay a single cent. Furthermore, the feature also backs up the last page you read as well as annotations. This means that you can review all the bookmarks and notes you had made before you deleted the digital book.
This electronic reading device supports various document formats such as Microsoft Word (DOC, DOCX), PDF, HTML, TXT, RTF, JPEG, GIF, PNG, BMP, PRC and MOBI. To download the latest electronic books or magazines, you simply need to connect your Kindle DX to the internet using Amazon’s Whispernet wireless network. The international version of the Kindle DX can also support 3G as well as EDGE/GPRS networks around 100 countries and territories. Unlike Wi-Fi connection which requires you to search for hotspots, as long as there is a 3G or EDGE/GPRS coverage wherever you are, you can always download new content with ease.
