Kindle DX Release Date Contest Results

And the winner is Jay from Florida. He correctly guessed the Kindle DX release date. Here’s what he has to say about himself:

I work in education and I am looking forward to using a DX for reading academic documents in PDF form and pushing the limits of the Kindle DX browser.
