All the proprietary goodness you can eat


Amazon.com
is now flogging its larger Kindle electronic reader, aimed at students, businesspeople and newspaper readers, in more than 100 countries.

Amazon said its Kindle DX would be available for pre-orders now and would ship on January 19. Analysts think that the larger Kindle goes against the trend for smaller gadgets and the price will put many off during the tough economic times.

The Kindle DX is designed to be a more friendly vehicle for textbooks and newspapers, which often need a larger space to display their content effectively. It also allows people to read personal documents which means that businesspeople and others dont have to carry around an assortment of loose papers.

The Kindle DX has a 9.7 inch display and has about 2.5 times the surface area of the normal Kindle. The wireless device includes a PDF reader and storage for up to 3,500 books. The device will cost $489.
