Kindle DX $70 off
It was way back in 2009 (remember those long-forgotten days?) when Amazon introduced the Kindle DX, a large-screen (9.7″) version of their Kindle 2.
One of its intended uses was in colleges (a deal with textbook makers was announced at the same time), but it ran into a problem when there were concerns expressed about its use for those with print challenges, since they couldn’t use the search features.
It definitely has had its fans over the years.
It was discontinued, but then returned to the line-up.
Today, Amazon is discounting it $70…making it $169.
This is a great price for it, although you have to take into account its advantages and disadvantages.
The first, obvious thing is that the software, at its core, is four years (and then some) old.
It also has no wi-fi access…only 3G (which is free, though).
On the plus side, it has text-to-speech (even though it only does English and is a couple of generations back for Kindles), and is estimated to hold about 3,500 books.
If you’ve always wanted a Kindle DX (no lighting, long battery life, big screen), this is a good opportunity:
