Amazon's Kindle DX arrives - with caveats

06 May 2009

Amazon’s new Kindle DX gets announced, people over the age of 40 get excited, until they hear it will sell for $490 when it goes on sale this summer. Almost $500 for a BOOK READER?? (Considering that reading books and newspapers are the only things the Kindle does well). While it may have some fans, Amazon’s pricing for the Kindle is seriously out of whack, especially given the current environment.
