Poor Amazon, with all of these new tablets and e-readers coming out, the major online retailer is pumping new specs and features into its Kindle readers to hold up some steady competition. Amazon has also been sending reminders out that its new Kindle DX with global wireless is now available and shipping. The Kindle DX with global wireless which lets you enjoy 3G wireless coverage at home or abroad in over 100 countries has started shipping today.
The Kindle DX reader features a 9.7-inch eInk display, 3.3 GB of memory for books and other material, automatically syncs with Kindle and Kindle-compatible software and gear, and includes a PDF reader. The Kindle DX display auto-rotates from portrait to landscape as you turn the device so you can view full-width maps, graphs, tables, and Web pages.
The Kindle DX with global wireless was released January 19th and shipments are out today. Amazon has priced the international edition of the Kindle DX at $489.
