Kindle DX for $299 (Gold Box offer)

Amazon is selling the Kindle DX for $299 today... I wonder if this means a new model is coming up.

I am also on the fence. I think it would be a great companion to my little PRS-350 (which I absolutely love). But there are several things stopping me.

1. From what I read, PDF support is still lacking. And Amazon hasn't released an update in more than a year, so they are not really supporting this product anymore, it seems.

2. I am afraid to buy it now only to see a new, better DX in a few months. Amazon usually releases new Kindles during the summer, right?

3. I also want a tablet. Maybe I can use the tablet to read those annoying PDFs that I come across from time to time. I would keep using my beloved PRS-350 as my main reader, of course.

I don't know... A large e-ink reader would certainly be nice...

My DX is my favorite reader around the house. It is so fun to read on. I have the Sony 950 for travel. I think it is important to have two readers if you can afford it.

I totally agree. Would love to get finally a DX since the first day I got the new Kindle.
I have to read a lot of scientific literature and reports and it would be just perfect for it.
BUT, the pdf support is still poor compared to the normal Kindle, no update released for a long time and the fear that a new one (hopefully without these drawbacks) would be released soon are holding me back.

I really hope that they manage to get the pdf support enhanced. Some annotation, export and so on function would make this device just perfect.
