Trending: The definitive account of Amazon’s perilous ambition: Key scenes from PBS’s epic investigation

kindledxThe Kindle DX is making a comeback.

After disappearing from the Amazon storefront last October, it looks like the Seattle online giant is once again selling the 9.7-inch tablet for $299.

The DX, which debuted in 2009 and features a keyboard with an e-ink display, was first spotted late last month by Digital Reader. We’ve reached out to Amazon to find out more about why it’s bringing the DX back and how long it expects to keep the tablet on the storefront.

The company gave both The Verge and TechCrunch the same statement, only stating that “our website lists the most up to date availability for all products. We’re excited to offer customers this option.”

The $299 price tag is the same as the 32GB Kindle Fire HD 8.9-inch tablet. In late 2011, Amazon had cut the price of the DX to $259 for a limited time.
