Today, I noticed that Amazon.com has quietly dropped the price of its 9.7-inch eReader, the Kindle DX, from $379 to $299. In the past, Amazon has discounted the DX for special occasions like fire sales and Black Friday, but after a few days the price eventually climbed back to an unbearably $379. Now it looks like the $299 price is here to stay. I bought a DX last Black Friday for $269 and really enjoyed reading on its large E Ink Pearl screen. Formerly a main focus of the Kindle brand, the DX has been largely abandoned by Amazon in the past couple of years. No software updates have been released, and there are no plans for a next-generation model. If Amazon is phasing out this device, keep an eye out for good discounts. At around $200, the DX with 3G would definitely be worth the purchase for those of you who would like to try a large screen eReader.
