Kindle DX sold out
Just days after shipping on Wednesday, the Kindle DX e-book reader is already sold out at Amazon, with another shipment expected by June 17th. The $489 device, sold exclusively through Amazon, apparently sold out on the first day, also thanks to pre-orders.
The DX is the largest Kindle device to date, sporting a 9.7-inch, 1200x824 resolution e-ink display as well as PDF file support, unlike the original Kindle and its successor, the Kindle 2. It can hold up to 3,500 books, periodicals, and documents in its memory and downloads this content via a no-charge 3G data connection. A tilt sensor will change the orientation of the screen as needed.
