Amazon Kindle DX lands in the UK

Amazon has announced that it will sell the Kindle DX e-reader in the UK (and indeed globally) come January 19th.

The DX is the bigger sibling of the Kindle, with a larger 10 inch display, and more memory enabling it to hold twice as many books – 3500 to be precise.

The downside, as with the original Kindle, is that it seems you’ll have to order it through the Amazon.com website.

And the price is $489, which translates to £306, and that’s before any import fees are added. So you’re looking at more like £350 plus, which makes it quite a pricey device.

Doubtless some will be willing to pay that, but we’d prefer to wait until Amazon gets it properly shipped over and available locally.
