Title: Amazon Kindle DX 3 g - nook price cut - free 3 g Internet - new e-ink widescreen - high-tech gifts for women 2011

Body: One of the hottest items for Christmas this year is the Amazon Kindle DX with free 3G Internet . After the Amazon price cut in July sales and reviews have seen the new e-ink large screen beome a sought after item. The price cut followed earlier Nook, Kindle and iPad announcements. The e-reader market has been especially active in 2010. In June Barnes & Noble launched its Wi-Fi Nook and slashed the costs of it’s Nook 3G. Amazon responded by cutting its entry level Kindle price to under the Nook Wi-Fi price.

This activity was in response to Apple's iPad, which was launched in April and has already sold 4 million units globally. The iPad incorporates an e-Reader but is not truly a direct comparison to the pure e-Readers. The iPad has grabbed a huge share of the e-bookstore market share. The e-Reader segment is the fastest growing segment of the book market.

In response Amazon is aiming at the avid book reader with it’s latest Kindle DX, which is Amazon's large screen portable reader. Amazon slashed the price from $489 to $379. The Kindle DX has free 3G wireless connections. They have also improved the screen to more book-like features. The new Kindle DX has a new high contrast e-ink screen. The new Kindle DX screen with clearer text and sharper images, free 3G and no annual contracts are directly aimed at the iPad e-Reader market. The Amazon Kindle DX price cut and new e-ink large screen began shipping from July 7.Buy Amazon Kindle DX with Free 3G Online Now for ChristmasKindle DX, Free 3G, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 9.7" Display with New E Ink Pearl TechnologyAmazon Price: $379.00Rapid Wall Home AC Charger for the Amazon Kindle 2nd & Latest Generation / Kindle DX ( aka Wi-Fi Free 3G 6 in. 9.7 in. )Amazon Price: $17.95List Price: $29.95Otterbox Commuter Series Amazon Kindle Dx BlackAmazon Price: Too low to displayList Price: $59.99Kindle DX, Free 3G, 3G Works Globally, Graphite, 9.7" Display with New E Ink Pearl TechnologyAmazon Price: $379.00Kindle, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Pearl DisplayAmazon Price: $139.00Kindle DX Wireless Reading Device (9.7" Display, U.S. Wireless)Amazon Price: $489.00Kindle iPad app - Kindle DX to competeNew Kindle DX Loaded with FeaturesThe Kindle DX has a 9.7-inch large screen.Amazon has upgraded with a new graphite enclosure.

Hey I am just saying.

Free global 3G wireless on Kindle DX. Amazon pays for your 3G wireless connectivity. Go ahead and shop and read to your hearts content. Kindle books are on your device in less than a minute. This is without a Wi-Fi hot spot or syncing. Sorry you don’t have to go to Starbucks to get online here. Amazon said that through Kindle DX you have 3G wireless coverage in over 100 countries.

Kindle Longer Battery Life. The biggest complaint about everything Apple is the battery. The Kindle DX battery is said to last up to 1 week on a single charge with the wireless on. If you shut the wireless off the battery will last twice that.

Kindle DX is slim and convenient. The Kindle DX is thin, coming in at around 1/3 of an inch. This was needed with the iPad touch and feel.

Kindle Twitter and Facebook integration. You want to share what you reading with all your buddies. Some would say this would bug them endlessly, ‘hey did you hear about….’

Kindle zoom capability. Sure to prove popular with the technically minded and textbook readers Kindle DX has zoom capability. It comes with a built-in PDF reader also.

Kindle auto-rotating screen. One of the most popular aspects of the iPad is the auto-rotating screen. Guess what Kindle DX does it also. You can read in portrait or landscape mode. You simply turn the screen around. This is very popular with maps and graphs.

Kindle Text to Speech. Kindle DX has a text-to-speech feature. I haven’t heard how it sounds but I understand it is more advanced then the Microsoft capability. This enables the Kindle DX to read out loud to you.
