Not sure why, maybe to head off the Sony ePaper device (I doubt that due to the DX’s lack of similar features,) but the 9.7″ Kindle DX is yet again available for $299.

One Reply to “Return of the DX”
Despite looking at it many times I am still happy I resisted buying a DX. The fact that I cannot fit it in the back pocket of a pair of jeans means it would be a stay-at-home device and the fact that it does not have side-lighting like my Paper White means I would not read it in bed before sleep. The fact that is eInk and not color means I would not want to use it for illustration rich books like tech manuals. I have so many reasons not to buy one but the fact that its now only $299 makes me mental recite them to myself again.
