Kindle DX now down to $299

- for some reason we don't have an alt tag here

In what may or may not be a permanent move, Amazon now has the Kindle DX for $299. That’s down $80 from the MSRP of $379, so not a bad deal at all. The DX is the larger version of the Kindle, with a 9.7″ screen and a much higher resolution of 824×1200 compared to 600×800 on the normal Kindle. It’s designed to be more of a textbook/magazine/newspaper type e-reader, and the higher resolution means it’s a heck of a lot better suited for documents than the horrible (IMHO) low resolution Kindle. At $299 it’s $120 more than the 3G Kindle, so the gap is starting to shrink. If I were to buy a Kindle, I’d most definitely get the DX rather than the normal version as I’m painfully aware of how important resolution is with certain types of reading material.
