NEW YORK - Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled the Kindle DX, a larger-screened version of the online retailer's eReader device, at a presentation in New York City on May 6. In addition to displaying volumes from Amazon's 275,000 eBook library, the Kindle DX, which now boasts a 9.7-inch display, is also designed for the best possible read of personal and business documents, such as PDFs, as well as must-reads such as The New York Times. The Kindle DX offers a number of technological refinements on the Kindle and Kindle 2, Amazon's previous eReaders. In addition to being able to adjust font size, for example, users can now also choose the number of words per line of text. Bezos demonstrated how the larger grayscale screen, which includes an auto-rotation feature, can be used for everything from textbooks to sheet music to graphics-intensive enterprise documents to nautical charts.By Nicholas Kolakowski
