Amazon has always been known for it’s options… need socks, gummy bears and a good book? No problem, 1 stop shopping with lots of variations, but up until now their Kindle lineup has been 1 dimensional. Not anymore. Just 1 week after Amazon dropped the price of their Kindle 2 they are releasing a snazzy new DX. (Lets just pretend that this is the original DX’s hot girlfriend.)
With a sleek new graphite exterior and a stunning list of new features. (including social networking options) this little beauty is bound to turn some heads. (Especially since the price is a shocking $379 compared to the previous $489) And, although she won’t be leaving her comfy home in the Amazon warehouses until July 7th, you can pre-order her today, (weather you’re a domestic or international customer.)
Check out what she has to offer and you be the judge. Stick with old faithful or trade her in for a new model.
