Amazon quietly discontinues the Kindle DX

updated 11:22 am EDT, Mon October 15, 2012

Aging Kindle DX no longer offered for sale as a new item from Amazon

All signs point to Amazon quietly discontinuing its Kindle DX e-book reader. The price of the aging device was recently dropped from $380 to $300 and now, the device is no longer available from purchase as a new item from Amazon's site. The site doesn't list a date of the device's return to stock, nor does it have it listed in the comparison pull-downs anymore either.

The move shouldn't come as a surprise, however, as Amazon didn't advertise it or updated it in a long time. The device launched back in the summer of 2009, sporting a 9.7-inch E-Ink display and a QWERTY hardware keyboard. The four-bit display offers 1,200x824 resolution and the device has 4GB of user memory. It included a free lifetime 3G connection that allowed users to download e-books any time and anywhere.

Whether Amazon replaces the model remains to be seen, but this isn't likely as color e-book readers that have more tablet-like functionality are becoming more and more popular. [via The-E-Book-Reader]
