Kindle DX comes to Canada — and the world — on January 19

The large-screen Kindle DX from is now available for pre-order for Canada (and other countries around the world); it has a 9.7-inch screen compared to the regular Kindle’s 6.0-inch one. (Until now, only the regular Kindle has been available outside the US — and even that’s a recent occurrence.)

The Kindle DX Global Wireless edition will be released on January 19, 2010, for US$489.

  1. A very good comparison of the Kindle 2 (the regular model) and the Kindle DX is here.

    (Of course, the DX now works internationally, but otherwise the review is current.)

  2. Hi Rob,

    I'm not really thinking about changing. If the time should come when I have ~$500 lying around needing to be spent, I might be tempted to get a DX as a second Kindle, but for now I'll happily stick with my K2.

    I was asking mostly out of curiosity, and to see what you thought about it.

    And thanks for the link to that article (I wonder how long it will be before they update based on the new International version of the DX?).

    Take Care,
