It seems that the powers that be at Amazon figured out that their Kindle DX tablet has some life left in it, hence resurrecting this 9.7” e-ink display e-reader without a formal announcement. Just in case you were wondering, the Amazon Kindle DX which was first introduced to mainstream consciousness in 2009, was discontinued on the quiet sometime in late 2012. To bring it back certainly underlines the faith that Amazon has in it, and while it does not remain visible on Amazon’s main Kindle page, it is up for sale again over at Amazon. Are they trying to clear out their inventory? Perhaps, considering how the price of the resurrected Kindle DX now stands at $299, which is a good $80 cheaper than last year’s price.
Other Kindle options include the $79 6” Kindle as well as the $214 7” Kindle Fire, but if viewing real estate is what you are after, the Kindle DX is hard to beat at 9.7”. Maybe Amazon is targeting the late summer back-to-school season, hence offering this e-book reader without much fanfare.
