Kindle DX has been revived!

Checking my Bookgorilla recommendations today, I saw the Kindle DX being offered on Amazon! It seems that Amazon has decided to restart production of this elderly Kindle line, so those who have been lusting after the DX can now get a brand new and improved DX. Very exciting, even if like me you aren't interested in one - I am hoping they will restart the Kindle Touch as well.

This has already been discussed in another thread.

Amazon is most likely liquidating remaining stock. They won't likely re-introduce a failed product.

Didn't see the other thread - and I did look. Hmm, how did that happen?

It doesn't sound like liquidating old stock - besides, why wouldn't they just leave it up, instead of hanging onto them for what, a year now? Unlike the Touch, it is not competition for a more expensive device.

Perhaps they got them back from a third-party supplier, or just found them at the back of a warehouse. I'm pretty sure this is just a case of selling off old stock. Similar things have happened before with other Kindle models.
