Super Kindle Update
As expected, Amazon announced its new Kindle model (inexplicably called the Kindle DX) in a press conference yesterday. The new Kindle DX is a hefty $489 and will start shipping this summer. According to Publishers Weekly, "Amazon hopes the larger screen and improved display will entice students to use Kindle DX." Last time I was on a college campus (which was last Tuesday), I didn't see any students running around with $500 gadgets, but maybe I'm missing something.
