Kindle DX

Features
Elegant, Easy-to-use E-reader
Lose Yourself in Your Reading
The most elegant feature of a physical book is that it disappears while you’re reading. Immersed in the author’s world and ideas, you don’t notice a book’s glue, the stitching, or ink. Our top design objective is to make Kindle Keyboard disappear — just like a physical book — so you can get lost in your reading, not the technology.

Ergonomic Design
Kindle Keyboard is easy to hold and read. We designed it with long-form reading in mind. When reading for long periods of time, people naturally shift positions and often like to read with one hand. Kindle Keyboard’s page-turning buttons are located on both sides, allowing you to read and turn pages from any position.

Touch Controls and Virtual Keyboard
Kindle Keyboard has an easy-to-use 5-way controller for on-screen navigation for highlighting text or looking up words. For searching and note-taking, Kindle Keyboard features a physical keyboard.

Never Gets Hot
Unlike a laptop, Kindle Keyboard never gets hot so you can read comfortably as long as you like.

Wireless Capability
Built-in Wi-Fi
Kindle Keyboard also comes with built-in Wi-Fi so you can search, shop and have books wirelessly delivered to your device without synching to a computer. Kindle Keyboard automatically detects nearby Wi-Fi networks wherever you are, making it easy to connect at school, home, or your favorite café.

Free Access at AT&T Hotspots
Enjoy free Wi-Fi access at AT&T hotspots across the U.S. for shopping and downloading Kindle content — no AT&T registration, sign-in, or password required.

E-Ink 101
Latest Generation E Ink
Kindle Keyboard uses E Ink Pearl – the latest generation of E Ink technology available – to deliver clear, crisp text you can read without strain.

How Electronic Ink Works
Electronic ink uses actual ink particles to create crisp, print-like text similar to what you see in a physical book. Kindle Keyboard uses proprietary, hand-built fonts to take advantage of the special characteristics of the ink to make letters appear clear and sharp.

Reads Like Real Paper
Because Kindle Keyboard’s electronic display uses E Ink, it looks and reads like real paper. Kindle Keyboard’s screen reflects light like ordinary paper and uses no backlighting, so you can read as easily in bright sunlight as in your living room.

Reading on Kindle
Adjustable Text Sizes, Font Choices
Kindle Keyboard has eight adjustable font sizes to suit your reading preference. You can increase the text size of your favorite book or periodical with the push of a button. If your eyes tire, simply increase the font size and continue reading comfortably. Kindle Keyboard also has three font styles to choose from – all optimized and hand-tuned to provide the best reading experience.

Custom Fonts
Kindle Keyboard uses hand-built, custom fonts and font-hinting to make words and letters more crisp, clear, and natural-looking. Font hints are instructions, written as code, that control points on a font character’s line, improving legibility at small font sizes where few pixels are available. Hinting is a mix of aesthetic judgments and complicated technical strategies. We’ve designed our proprietary font-hinting to optimize specifically for the special characteristics of electronic ink.

Fast Page Turns
Kindle Keyboard has fast page turns. We’ve done this by fine-tuning Kindle Keyboard’s proprietary waveform, the series of electronic pulses that move black and white electronic ink particles to achieve an optimal display of images and text.

Support for Non-Latin Characters
Kindle Keyboard supports the display of non-Latin characters, so you can read books and documents in the translation that’s right for you. Kindle Keyboard displays Cyrillic (such as Russian), Japanese, Chinese (Traditional and Simplified), and Korean characters, in addition to Latin and Greek scripts.

Full Image Zoom
Images and photos display crisply on Kindle Keyboard and can be zoomed to the full size of the screen.

Rotate Between Portrait and Landscape Mode
Manually rotate the display from portrait to landscape to view maps, graphs, tables and Web pages.

Real Page Numbers
Easily reference and cite passages or read alongside others in a book club or class with real page numbers. Using the computing fabric of Amazon Web Services, we’ve created algorithms that match specific text in a Kindle book to the corresponding text in a print book, to identify the correct, “real” page number to display. Real page numbers are available on tens of thousands of our most popular Kindle books, including the top 100 bestselling books in the Kindle Store that have matching print editions. Page numbers are displayed when you touch the top of the screen.

Carry and Read Your Personal Documents
Kindle Keyboard makes it easy to take your personal documents with you, eliminating the need to print. You and your approved contacts can e-mail documents – including Word, PDF and more – directly to your Kindle and read them in Kindle format. Your personal documents will be stored in your Kindle library on Amazon and ready to download conveniently anywhere at any time. You can add notes, highlights and bookmarks, which are automatically synchronized across devices along with the last page you read using our Whispersync technology.

You can read your PDFs in their native format, view them in landscape mode, or zoom in up to 300% to view small print and detailed tables and graphics. You can also convert your PDF document to the Kindle format so that it reflows like a regular Kindle book. Learn more.
Dictionary and Search
Built-In Dictionary with Instant Lookup
Come across a word you don’t know? Kindle Touch includes The New Oxford American Dictionary with over 250,000 entries and definitions for free. Kindle Touch lets you instantly look up the definition without ever leaving the book – simply move the cursor to the word and the definition will automatically display at the bottom of the screen.

Search Wikipedia and the Web
Kindle Keyboard makes it easy to find what you’re looking for. Just enter a word or phrase and Kindle will search every instance across your Kindle library, in the Kindle Store, on Wikipedia, or the Web using Google search.
Notes and Sharing
Bookmarks and Annotations By using the QWERTY keyboard, you can add annotations to text, just like you might write in the margins of a book. And because it is digital, you can edit, delete, and export your notes. You can highlight and clip key passages and bookmark pages for future use. You’ll never need to bookmark your last place in the book, because Kindle remembers for you and always opens to the last page you read.

Popular Highlights
See what millions of Kindle readers think are the most interesting passages in your books. If several other readers have highlighted a particular passage, then that passage will be highlighted in your book along with the total number of people who have highlighted it. View details.

Share Meaningful Passages
Share your passion for books and reading with friends, family, and other readers around the world by posting meaningful passages to social networks like Facebook and Twitter directly from Kindle Keyboard, without leaving the page. Want to post or tweet about a great new novel or newspaper article? When you highlight or create a note in your book or periodical, you can easily share it with your social network. Help your network of family and friends discover new authors and books.

Public Notes
Share your notes and see what others are saying about Kindle books. Any Kindle user – including authors, book reviewers, professors and passionate readers everywhere – can opt-in to share their thoughts on book passages and ideas with friends, family members, colleagues, and the greater Kindle community.
