Amazon launches cheaper Kindle DX e-reader Giant e-tailer Amazon has announced that it will be introducing a new, cheaper version of its Kindle DX e-reader, lowering the price to remain competitive.
The updated model will also have a sharper screen.

Amazon charged $489 for the first generation DX, but the new generation model will sell for $379.

Additionally, Amazon says the new DX will handle PDFs better, including the ability to zoom, which was the top complaint for the original device.

Pre-orders on the second generation model start today and the device will ship on July 7th.

The Kindle DX is different from its brother Kindle device because it has a large 9.7-inch screen. Amazon had hoped the DX would eventually replace textbooks on college campuses.
