Amazon Kindle DX discontinued Amazon has discontinued its least popular Kindle, the over-sized DX.
The DX had a large 9.7-inch screen and is now only available through third-party sellers on Amazon.

Jay Marine, vice president of Kindle at Amazon, recently said the company is "pretty much done with it," when asked about the DX, so the new move should not be seen as too much of a surprise.

Amazon, which recently dropped the price of the e-reader from $380 to $300, has not said if the device will come back on sale, but its highly doubtful given the price drop to clear inventory.

The giant e-tailer also recently announced their Kindle Paperwhite e-reader and Kindle Fire HD tablet, each of which are cheaper than the DX and offer more features and newer software.

Well that sucks. The DX is great for reading text books and I don't want an iPad for this.
