Hands-on pics and video of the Kindle DX

Hey, all! I thought it would be good to have a thread where we can post links to good pics and video of the Kindle.

As I live in New York now and am currently under-employed, I was able to swing by the press conference this morning where Amazon unveiled the new Kindle DX. Here are some pics and video I took. I'll write up my personal impressions a little later.

Video:


Extended clip: Demo of the Kindle DX.


Short clip: Note taking/highlighting in a non-pdf textbook.


Short clip: Menu selection scrolling, screen response time.


Short clip: Zoom mode for images in a newspaper.

I apologize for the crummy camera work in the above. I'm not a very good cameraman, and this was my first try doing something like this.

Okay, pics!
