Lichfield, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 12, 2010 -- Amazon have just announced that the large screen version of their wireless reading devices, the Kindle DX, will from the 19th January 2010 be available to buy with global wireless.
This now puts it into the same market as it's smaller brother, the Amazon Kindle 2, in so much as it has the added ability to conveniently download content in well over one thousand countries across the globe.
Where it differs from the Kindle 2 is in it's screen size. I am the first to admit the Kindle DX does not touch it's smaller stable mate for portability, but when it comes to reading the near ten inch, e-ink screen (of the DX) nocks spots of it's little brother. Reading is oh so simple and much closer to the 'real thing', not because of the electronic paper display as that technology is used on both models, but because of the display size, near 1:1 reproduction of A4, and it's ability to auto rotate, making it far easy to read the full-width of newspapers, magazines and office documents such as maps and graphs plus tables and even Web pages on this model.
The large memory, capable of storing about 3,500 novels, has always made the DX ideal for office and field applications and so the global aspect added to it's vast array of features only further enhances it as the perfect business users choice of wireless reading devices.
Amazon have stated that the Kindle DX with added global wireless capability, is immediately available to pre-order from today, for a bargain $489, and will be shipped on a first come first served basis from January 19.
