This is just one of the many price drops the e-reader market has seen as they try to stay viable in a tablet encrazed market. The Kindle DX boasts 50% better contrast than the previous Kindle for easier reading, a 9.7" screen, 3G Wireless connectivity, text to speech, and a battery that can go up to two weeks when using the Kindle as a reader only device.
