Kindle DX goes global

Amazon to sell e-book reader outside US

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Amazon will extended the Kindle DX’s reach beyond North America later this month by selling the e-book reader to a wider global audience.

Set for global release on 19 January, it currently looks as though Blighty-based buyers will be forced to purchase the Kindle DX through Amazon’s North American website where the gadget is priced at $489 (£305/€340).

The Kindle DX features a 9.7in screen able to display 16 shades of gray. The e-book reader can connect into Amazon’s online Kindle Store through a 3G connection and has a 3.3GB memory.

Pre-orders for the Kindle DX can be place online now. ®
