We have published an article about the 9-inch Kindle DX but for our readers’ sake, we’d like to follow that up with a post about its smaller counterpart, the Kindle Wireless Reading Device with 6-inch diagonal display. This is almost the same as the Kindle 2.0 released in Q1 of 2009 but this 2010 version of the Kindle is much more powerful and packed with more features. A difference between the Amazon Kindle with 6″ display and the Kindle DX can be summarized below.
For more info about Kindle DX, head on to this link – Kindle DX with Global Wireless. That article deals with the technical specs, price, release date of this larger Kindle model.
If you want to know something more about the older Kindle, go to the article linked above. There are two major improvements that we know about these gadgets:
- 3G Wireless: 3G wireless lets you download books right from your Kindle; no annual contracts, no monthly fees, and no hunting for Wi-Fi hotspots
- Global Coverage: Enjoy 3G wireless coverage at home or abroad in over 100 countries (check the availability in your country)
With over 400,000 books available for these Ebook readers, we’re pretty sure it’s enough to convince most book lovers to grab one especially now that the price has gone down from the initial SRP of about $400 (for the Kindle 2.0 version) to $259 only (for the 6″ model). A huge savings, if we may add, during these trying times.
