Kindle DX

Images and details have been leaked online regarding a new Amazon Kindle device, which is supposed to be announced during a scheduled event on Wednesday. Don’t worry, Gadgetell will be there live blogging it. The event is to be held in Manhattan and sources say a larger version of Kindle is expected to make its debut.

Engadget first broke the news and included blurry photos of what appears to be a significantly larger version of the Kindle 2. Initial reports are saying that this new version of Kindle will be called the Kindle DX and include a 9.7 inch screen. The Kindle 2 screen measures in at 6 inches. Additional rumors include upgrades to the Kindle DX with a built in PDF reader and an application that will permit adding annotations to the different e-books and magazines. Other buzz is also saying that the NY Times will now be lowering its subscription rate for Kindle to $9.99.

Additional details are expected to be announced tomorrow after the Amazon event. No word yet on the price of this new Kindle or if it will have touch screen capabilities.
