One of the largest online retailers, Amazon, has surprised everyone by bucking the trend on big e-readers and putting its 9.7-inch Kindle DX back in stock. Earlier, the bigger version of the Kindle was pulled from the shelves in 2012 when people switched to smaller tablets.
Now Amazon has brought back its Kindle DX for $299, reflecting the price drop for e-readers which was brought in late in 2012. This device was apparently discontinued back in October when the company announced the backlit Kindle Paperwhite e-reader along with a new line of Kindle Fire tablets.
The online retailer’s vice president Jay Marine claimed that Amazon had pretty much done with the Kindle DX, which was developed for the text book market, and the latter fell to 10 inch tablets. According to the statement, the company has confirmed the e-reader's return, but there are suggestions that this move will be temporary. The jokes are that Amazon might have found a warehouse of them that it had forgotten about and wants to clear the backlog. But the experts point out that it could also be an experiment. At the moment, interest in the bigger tablets has fallen – this means that text book users might still need a cheaper and bigger screen.

|Size matters. Now we can boast about having a ten-inch... e-reader?|
|Thanks for the article Sam. Amazon is pretty spread with all the different options you can purchase from them. If someone forgot about a warehouse full of inventory I'd say a little to thin. I would be curious to know how much this inventory of lost stock was in dollars and cents. It's just to funny to believe that their crack team of accountants, book keepers inventory specialists etc. could lose a warehouse. Wonder how many employee's got a new Kindle for Christmas.||
