Kindle DX is already sold out on Amazon The Amazon Kindle DX e-book reader is already sold out at the giant e-tailer, just three days after Amazon announced large volume on pre-orders.
The next batch of supply will be available June 17th, notes the site.

The device costs $489 USD, and is sold exclusively through Amazon, at least for the time being.

The reader "sports 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."

I have a co-worker of mine at work that uses the Kindle, and I'm impressed with the device. I'm thinking of saving up the $$ to buy one in the next month or two.

Then, I could repurchase the books I've already bought from Amazon, and have them downloaded onto the Kindle for me to read as I want.

my wife has a kindle 1..she loves it!
recently it died tho, and was out of warranty...and amazon STILL replaced it at no cost..

2 DOA's on the replacements..3 kindles that week, I was impressed by the customer service for amazon regarding the kindle, as that is the only time we have had to call them.

Too bad they use the Sprint network for the whispernet, as ATT has a better coverage area than both sprint and verizon based on my own exp.
