The big Kindle is going bye-bye.

It appears that after slashing prices of the e-book reader, Amazon has decided to stop selling its Kindle DX altogether.

No longer is the DX listed side-by-side with the Kindle family and it’s only available to buy from third-party sellers. The DX and its 9.7″ screen is about two years old now and many of the features are outdated in comparison to the newer Kindle line.

It’s common practice for Amazon to take steps to clear out its inventory of existing Kindle devices before unveiling new versions.

With the departure of the DX, the biggest Kindle is now the 8.9″ Kindle Fire HD. The $299 price tag is what the DX was selling for before its departure.

    Darn. Owning a DX was great for a guy’s ego. You would frequently hear “Wow, that’s a big one” and “Most of them are a lot smaller than that.”

    Bummer. I love my DX. Allows me to flip a lot fewer pages than a normal Kindle and also does a great job displaying PDF’s.
